The survivalist world is dominated by men: women rarely get a look-in. Every contestant in Bear Grills’ The Island is a man and there is not one survival show presented by a woman. So it is a breath of fresh air to see Surfer Alison Teal put her surviving skills to the test for Discovery Channel series Naked and Afraid. Teal had an unconventional childhood and learnt her survival skills at a young age.
She’s journeyed all over the world with her camera and pink surfboard to share global secrets of survival, sustainability and happiness. In this video you’ll follow Teal as she prepares for Naked and Afraid and learn about how her unusual parents passed on their survival skills to her.
