World Cinema: Sports is for Women

Girls Can´t Surf

Christopher NELIUS
Australia 2020 108min DCP color Documentary G Asian Premiere
Overview

Set in the peroxide fluoro circus of 80’s surfing, Girls Can´t Surf tracks a band of renegade female surfers who took on the male-dominated professional surfing world to achieve equality and change the sport forever.

Review

While all sports are the same, surfing was also where extreme discrimination against women existed. Although surfing was a unisex sport in the 1950s and 60s, it belonged to a big industry where money was gathered when it became a professional sport and since then it was reorganized to be male-oriented. Around this time, prize money for female surfer’s was only tenth of that for men, and they had pressure to wear bikinis. Girls Can´t Surf is a documentary that focuses on female surfers who broke through the problems head-on. The female athletes from Australia, the U.S., and South Africa fiercely resisted host and fellow athletes, inequality from sponsors, homophobia, and male supremacy. It’s a story of powerful women who overcome the prejudice that women cannot surf well. (MOON Seok)
