This article presents a case study of the surfing subculture in Australia as evid ence that some collective reactions to the process of postmodernisation can actually be detrimental to the status of women. The circumstances under which this has occurred in the surfing subculture are outlined, and possibilities for a feminist reaction to developments like those in the surfing example are discussed.
