One Winter Story
Directors: Sally Lundburg and Elizabeth Pepin
USA, 2006, 55 mins. 

This film looks at big-wave pioneer and scientist Sarah Gerhardt’s dramatic journey from poverty and despair to a 1990s surf star. Gerhardt was the first woman to slice across the monster wave known as Maverick’s in Northern California. One Winter Story traces Sarah’s determination to its roots in a montage of film, voice, memory, and emotion.

Students of the late Indian teacher Sri Chinmoy, who lived in Queens for more than 40 years, discover the beauty and power of the nearby surfing beaches and incorporate their love for the ocean into their search for enlightenment. Along the way they share their philosophy and outlook with notable surfers such as Kelly Slater, Jack Johnson and Titus Kinimaka.

Kapolioka’ehukai (short)
Director: Stuart Bjornlie
USA, 2010, 4 mins. 

Surfer Crystal Thornburg restored Rell Sunn’s neglected outrigger canoe to celebrate and honor generations of inspiring waterwomen. The canoe represents Crystal’s connection to Rell and the values she has passed down, which inspired her and her two friends to set out and paddle part of the coast of Hawai’i in celebration of Rell’s spirit.
