Dear & Yonder

Finally a surf flick by and about women, to be released sometime this year. In addition to great surfing in Indo and at other warm-water breaks, there are local angles. Santa Cruz surfer Ashley Lloyd shapes and rides a BioFoam board, and a geophysicist named Judith Sheridan who bodysurfs Mavericks (!) explains the forces that shaped the Bay Area coastline.

It still amazes me to see women surfing in bikinis. Even if I was good enough not to risk giving folks on the beach a topless show (and I have a ways to go before I'm at that point), I'd still want to be able to push myself without fear of indecent exposure. But maybe those women just don't care, while I was raised by prudes.
