The documentary film “It Ain’t Pretty” directed by Dayla Soul
Will be shown on Feb. 25, 2017 from 6pm. – 8:30pm at the Odd Fellows Ocean View Lodge
526 Main St in Half Moon Bay
(See schedule below)
This event is hosted by Surfrider Foundation, San Mateo Chapter and includes commentary by Ed and Mary Larenas of Surfrider Foundation, Sabrina Brennen, advocate for equity in women’s surfing, and director Dayla Soul.
Everyone is welcome to join us for a screening of this remarkable film, about some very remarkable women. This film challenges the “bikini-clad, surfer girl” image and shows what it’s really like for the women who charge big waves including at Maverick’s. It Ain’t Pretty is not just a film, but a community movement. The film is 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. Featuring Ocean Beach surfer and world-class big wave charger, Bianca Valenti, and including interviews with top female athletes with awe-inspiring big wave surf footage filmed in the icy waters of Ocean Beach, San Francisco and Mavericks, Half Moon Bay – one of the biggest waves on the planet.
Please join us for an evening of inspiration and hope. Let’s all help to empower a new generation of girls to live their dreams and overcome the challenges they face along the way.
