Janson Films presents an amazing, full-length documentary on women surfers – excellent footage and editing….love the music. Prepare to have a severe itch to be in the ocean with a board after watching this….the ladies are amazing.
This independent documentary film expands the surf film genre and features some of the most unique and visually stunning moments in women’s sports cinematography. The film is shot on location in Tavarua, Fiji, a remote 30-acre island in the South Pacific that is surrounded by one of the world’s best ocean reef breaks.
Against this backdrop, charging ten-foot waves that pound the coral reef beneath, or inside the hollow of a perfectly-shaped “tube” – ‘Surfer Girl’ captures images of women athletes rarely seen on television or in film. The women speak of their passion for the ocean, for surfing, and for following their dreams, despite the odds against them. Surfer Girl features Americans Frieda Zamba and Debbie Beacham, and Australian’s Wendy Botha, Pam Burridge and Jodie Cooper…five women. Ten world titles. Personal and compelling stories.
