Organisers of a junior surf competition in South Africa have been accused of sexism after discrepancies in the prize money awarded to the male and female winners.
Rio Waida and Zoe Steyn claimed first place in the boys’ and girls’ 2018 Billabong Junior Series Ballito Pro event on Sunday.
A photograph of the pair posing with their winners’ cheques has drawn waves of criticism online, as Rio is shown to have won double Zoe’s prize.
The photograph, which was posted to the competition’s Facebook page, has been shared widely – and sparked discussion about gender equality.
