Super Stoked Surf Mamas

Super Stoked Surf Mamas

DOCUMENTARY / SPORTS | 60 mins | 2019

We are pleased to announce a special day time screening for our Women In Surf Film programme and it’s a great lineup. From the United States we have Introducing the Super Stoked Mamas of Pleasure Point. It’s been picking up awards at Surf Film Festivals around the world and is in hot contention here.

This film, expertly made by Elizabeth Pepin Silva is a story about friendship, pregnancy and surfing but the parallel subtext is about how powerful community and sisterhood can be.

Silva has other filmmaking credits and is a great photographer so this film not only feels good, it looks good too. Highly recommended for all surf mamas, their daughters and their families.

Also on the bill is local film The Surfing Mums’ Journey by Paula Tura and with Moffat Beach and other Sunny Coast locations as a backdrop it couldn’t be closer to home. The festival has and will always support local filmmakers and it is refreshing to find women amongst the film crews here.

It too tells the story of women surfers, how they juggle lives and their love of surfing, before and after families come into the picture. Come and support.

Next up is Of The Sea which tells the story of Katherine Terrell, a surfing Mum who was once a Vietnamese boat refugee and who now lives in Costa Rica advocating for sustainable swimwear. “Hot Bikinis for a Hot Planet” is her motto and we couldn’t agree more. It’s an inspiring story, made with great professionalism by Jordyn Romero who is a documentary filmmaker who wants to travel the world making adventurous films with soul after she finishes her current studies. We think she has a solid future based on this.

Last but not least is an encore screening of Simagere, which fits the bill in this programme too as it tells the story of a surfing family from Brazil doing it tough in the tropical paradise that is Mentawais. Not only is it picture perfect, it also happens to have some sublime surf.

Surf coach Bruno Santos and his partner Deborah came to work and play and to show their girls another way of life. The girls take to the lifestyle easily and are also pretty able when it comes to carving it up out on the waves. Surfing girls (and boys) will love this film and as a family friendly outing you can’t go wrong.

All for special $10 a ticket.
