Overview

On the south coast of Sri Lanka, surfing is everywhere, yet local girls are discouraged from participating in the sport. Instead, they’re expected to stay home and concentrate on housework, getting married and caring for children. Sanu is challenging the strict gender roles of her village and dreams of becoming the first woman surf instructor. She found a home in the ocean and proves that the young women surfers of Sri Lanka are like waves. You cannot stop them.
