SEEKING THE TRUTH
Our mission is simple.
We are creating this film in search of the the unedited, uninfluenced, and unfiltered truth.
Which is why it is important for you to know that we are 100% independently financed. We don’t want the silent hand of sponsors to influence our message as that would be a disservice to the women & girls we are trying to bring a voice to.
So this is our promise to you as we start our journey with an open mind and an empty wallet:
We are diving into this story with the sole agenda of shining a light on women in the surf community- both recreational and professional, both good and bad.
That we are pursuing diversity and authenticity.
And that we will never miss a swell.
