It's the 1980s and the world of professional surfing is a circus of fluoro colours, peroxide hair and radical male egos. Girls Can’t Surf follows the journey of a band of renegade surfers who take on the male-dominated professional surfing world to achieve equality and change the sport forever.  

Featuring surfing greats Jodie Cooper, Frieda Zamba, Pauline Menczer, Lisa Andersen, Pam Burridge, Wendy Botha, Layne Beachley and more, Girls Can’t Surf is a wild ride of clashing personalities, sexism, adventure and heartbreak, with each woman fighting against the odds to make their dreams of competing a reality.  

The film is a great tribute to all of these athletes and a timely reminder of everything that led up to the decision to raise the women's prize money to parity with the men's just two years ago. The current generation has much to thank them for’ – Sydney Morning Herald
