Girls Can’t Surf UK Trailer Shows These Girls ‘CAN’ Surf!

Next month Rad girls will take to the cinematic waves in Girls Can’t Surf. Studio Soho have today released the official UK Trailer for Christopher Nelius documentary.

An inspiring true story of a group of female renegade surfers who took on the male-dominated professional surfing world in a fight for equality.

Football (Soccer) has shown a sport dominated by men can equally share the power. Showing the quality and enjoyment has never faltered, just look the women’s Euro championship shown live on Television. Surfing may not have the same popularity as football, the struggle these girls had is a story that had to be told. Most of all creating their own idols and legends to inspire future generations.

GIRL’S CAN’T SURF is a feature documentary which tells the untold story of how a band of renegade surfer girls in the 1980s fought to create their own professional sport, changing surf culture forever.

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 female surfers who took 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 professionally – and on equal terms ­­- a reality.

The documentary features Jodie Cooper, Frieda Zamba, Pauline Menczer, Lisa Andersen, Pam Burridge, Wendy Botha, and Layne Beachley.

Girls Can’t Surf will ride the waves in UK and Irish cinemas from 19th August.
