Women’s surfing movie in Byron

Surfing this monster wave is Queensland surfer Shakira Westdorp, who features in the film, ‘The Women and the Waves’, which will be screened at the Byron Bay Community Centre this month.

The film explores the lives of female surfers who have found a place of their own in what was once a male-dominated sport.

It features generations of women surfers for whom surfing became the dominant force in their lives.

‘The Women and the Waves’ screens at the Community Centre on Friday, January 22, at 8 pm.

Shakira Westdorp is coming down from the Gold Coast for the screening.
