Surf's up at Hydro these days as we prepare to start shooting One Wave, the docu-series on big wave women surfers we are co-producing with director Sachi Cunningham.
Sachi Cunningham is an award-winning journalist, surf photographer and college professor.
One Wave is a 30-minute episodic docu-series that explores the fascinating lives of female big-wave surfers.
These women risk their lives surfing the most legendary breaks in the world. The stories of these pioneering individuals will explore their battle to gain respect and equal pay in their sport.
The series will reveal the frenetic culture, friendship and dedication of female big wave surfers while exploring the financial and personal struggles these individuals face every day in pursuit of their dreams.
The globe-trotting series will take our cast to beautiful locations including CA, Oregon, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Portugal, Mexico, Fiji, Tahiti and Morocco where they will confront death-defying waves.
Unlike other adventure sports that allow for weeks of planning, big wave surfing is beholden to the call of Mother Nature, when a big 'swell' is announced by weather forecasters, on a moment’s notice, our characters leave their careers and families behind in search of the perfect wave, not knowing if they’ll come back home unscathed.
