“We’re not going to stand for less”

Following a trail-blazing group of women who took on the chauvinism and inequality of the professional surfing world in the 1980s and beyond, Girls Can’t Surf is a fluoro-tinged, salt-crusted gem of a documentary. Featuring surfing greats Jodie Cooper, Frieda Zamba, Pauline Menczer, Lisa Andersen, Pam Burridge, Wendy Botha, Layne Beachley and more, the film offers a frank, fascinating and adrenaline-charged account of sexism, setbacks, sponsorship deals — and ultimately, success.

★★★★ “A great tribute to these athletes” — The Sydney Morning Herald
