(USA, 2009, 32 min)
Bodysurfer and geophysicist Judith Sheridan fearlessly charges the brutal surf of San Francisco’s Ocean Beach. Far out to sea, Captain Liz Clark demonstrates her commitment to surfing and the environment by utilizing wind power to sail the world in search of the best waves. In the spirit of craft and innovation, Ashley Lloyd designs, shapes and surfs a board utilizing a soy-based material, while Belinda Baggs sews her own shorts from vintage fabrics between surf sessions. This dynamic cast of women share not only their skills in the water, but also their positive relations with the natural world, each other and themselves.
