We only have the present moment. How will you live it?
“The Women and the Waves 2” is a documentary surf film that celebrates women and their unique approach to surfing and life. 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.
Following in the footsteps of the groundbreaking 2009 film, The Women And The Waves; The Women And The Waves 2 continues to explore the culture of surfing in relation to six surfers and their lives both in and out of the water.
The Women And The Waves 2 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 cycle of life. Ultimately, the film is the portrayal that a life filled 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 Sunshine Coast Surf Film Festival would like to acknowledge the invaluable curatorial assistance Liz Davison, Editor of Sunshine Surf Girls has made in relation to putting this section of the program together. Liz suggested Women and the Waves 2 to us, provided contact details and was also instrumental in putting us in contact with Fran Miller whose short Mood we are also showcasing and who will also be a part of the pop-up gallery. Fran will also hopefully be hosting a photography workshop while she is here. Details to be announced. Thanks very much Liz.
