Women’s surfing carries the extra burden of not only having to be serious, but also be sexy.
Watch as Sanuk surfy sea scribe, Lauren Hill, pokes fun at all that with a little absurdity from the everyday realities of being a woman in the water…”Pear Shaped” is a tip of the cap to the people who shrug off the unique challenges of surfing and choose to go anyway.
About the making of this film, Lauren says, “So, these are a couple of the reasons why I wanted to create Pear Shaped; to get at some of these image issues in women’s surfing — to address the insidious nature of social media, the pressure to be tanned, hairless and flawless — and to show how very far most representations of women’s surfing are from the everyday realities of being a woman in the water.”
Smile… pass it on!
