The film looks at the state of surfing today from a feminine perspective and features positive role models that give back to people and the planet."
This film emphasizes the notion that surfing is more than just a sport, it is a lifestyle, and serves as a backdrop for connections made between people, honoring the natural world, paying homage to loved ones past, and celebrating the life cycle. Ultimately, the film is the portrayal that a life with gratitude for one another and the world we live in, is a life well lived. And when the joy of surfing is added to the equation it makes life that much more sweet!
The launch point of inspiration to make the film came in Fall 2013 when two friends featured in the film experienced pivotal moments. After a valiant twenty year battle with cancer Robin Janiszeufski-Hesson 'Zeuf' was a few moments from death, and Ashley Lloyd Thompson was a few months from giving birth. One goes out. One goes in. Life rolls on. Just like the waves that are eternal.
