daughters of the waves

(53 MIN.)

Surfing is no longer a sport only for men. More and more girls in Polynesia are starting to tackle the legendary Teahupoo wave. And it’s a triumphant beginning for these young women.


Although only 20, Vahine Fierro is undaunted by the Teahupoo wave, considered the most dangerous in the world.

 

Vahine surfs as no other Polynesian girl has ever surfed. Now a whole generation is following in her path, hoping to build a future.
