It Aint Pretty


A documentary about the challenges and triumphs of a female big wave surfer who contends with sexism in the water, in competition and in the surf industry with the support of a closely-knit local community of like-minded women. This film takes you inside a growing movement of women that believe media portrayal of body image is is over sexualized and gives the youth a false image to live up to. This film documents a movement that is creating the new role models that will empower girls to face their fears and over come their own challenges. Filmed in the icy waters of Northern California (or Ocean Beach, San Francisco and Half Moon Bay, CA.)
