'Women and the Waves' plays the Ventura Film Festival
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 3 July, 2009 : - - Ventura, Ca -- 'I never wanted to surf like a girl,' smiles 64-year-old surf legend Linda Benson, 'But now its different
theyre really good!' For women who have paddled head-first into a once male dominated sport, surfing is not only a daily passion, but a way of life. Battling fierce tides and stereotypes, female surfers from every decade are connected by a common thread: they are 'The Women in the Waves.'
This Sunday, July 5, 2009 @ 6pm, The Women and the Waves presented by Surf Her Skin Care, screens at the Majestic Ventura Theater, 26 S. Chestnut, Ventura, Ca. Shot in High Definition in California, Mexico and Hawaii, the independent film features surfing legend, Linda Benson, 80s champion, Kim Mearig, musician and shaper, Ashley Lloyd, and more!
Producer Heather Hudson will be in attendance for a Q &.A following the 48 minute film. I wanted to give recognition to the women, famous or not, who have paved the way for other women to surf. Each generation has made it easier for the next to get out in the water.
