Story

The sport of big wave surfing has exploded in popularity thanks to surfing’s inclusion in the Tokyo Olympics and the recent documentary series 100 Foot Wave and Life of Kai.

But where are the women?

Emmy-award-winning filmmaker Sachi Cunningham takes you on an intimate journey with four of the best big wave surfers in the world on their quest for inclusion and equal pay in one of the most dangerous sports on earth. 

Surfers Bianca Valenti, Keala Kennelly, Paige Alms, and Andrea Möller's surprising, history-making journey is only the beginning of what becomes their ultimate mission: equity for women and for all. 

What is the message you want to send our youth?

Representation matters. It’s no secret that women athletes are paid a lot less than men and some, like big wave surfers, are formally and informally, not welcome to participate. The imbalance in pay and participation persists not only for athletes -- female coaches, administrators, and sports executives comprise only a small percentage of the whole. Media coverage and sponsorship of women’s athletics is paltry, often minimizes our powerful capacities and accomplishments, or depicts us as sexual objects.  

If you believe in the power of documentary film to change hearts and minds, join our mission.

This isn’t just a story about the right to dream big and compete on the world stage, but about friendship, resilience, and the power of coming together to create change. With four months of editing completed, your generous funding will support our award-winning editor to finish this film and get it out into the world where it can create long lasting change!

Sachi Cunningham, Louie Psihoyos, Adrienne Hall, Stephanie Mechura, and Katie Zacarian
