Girls Can’t Surf
Christopher Nelius, Australia 2020
A wild ride of rebellion, smashing the patriarchy and cut-throat adventure, GIRLS CAN’T SURF dives into the world of professional surfing; a circus of fluoro colours, peroxide hair and radical male egos. In a time where women were side-lined to tiny bikinis and arm-candy, this disparate group of women from around the world dreamt of becoming world champions. Fiercely individual, competitive, ambitious and opinionated, these women came up against a male-dominated million-dollar industry and culture that wasn’t ready for them.
