Surf’s up and this movie seems to be all about getting real about women on the board in the water. Check out this clip on youtube and if you are in the Berkely area March 29 meet director Dayla Soul for post-film Q & A.
Join us as we close out Women’s History Month watching It Ain’t Pretty, a documentary about the challenges and triumphs of female big wave surfers fighting sexism in the water, in competition, in the media and in the surf industry with the support of a closely-knit community of like-minded women. Featuring Ocean Beach surfer Bianca Valenti’s journey from childhood phenom to world-class big wave charger & including interviews with top female athletes and awe-inspiring big wave surf footage filmed in the icy waters of Ocean Beach, San Francisco and Mavericks – one of the biggest waves on the planet – this film empowers a new generation of girls to live their dreams and overcome the challenges they face along the way.
