Surfer Magazine, August '09 Issue: "Through thought-provoking commentary, archival and modern footage, and interviews with a handful of well-cast female surfers--former world champions Linda Benson and Kim Mearig, as well as upcoming pros and lifelong surfers--this 48 minute film documents the evolution of female surfing. Not focused on logos, it serves as a well-rounded, indie account of the estrogen filled side of the sport."
From the CI Crew:
"Please join us this Sunday, July 12th, from 1-4 PM in the back of the SB shop for a free BBQ and to take advantage of our special one day promotions. Hope to see you there!"

“THE WOMEN AND THE WAVES” BUST OPEN THE DOORS OF THE MAJESTIC VENTURA THEATER THIS WEEKEND
Surf Film Celebrating Women Who’ve Paved the Way is An Official Selection of the Ventura Film Festival
(VENTURA, CA. — July 2, 2009) “I never wanted to surf like a girl,” smiles 64-year-old surf legend Linda Benson, “But now it’s different…they’re really good!” For women who have paddled head-first into a once male dominated sport, surfing is not only a daily passion, but a way of life. Battling fierce tides and stereotypes, female surfers from every decade are connected by a common thread: they are “The Women in the Waves.”
This Sunday, July 5, 2009 @ 6pm, The Women and the Waves presented by Surf Her Skin Care, screens at the Majestic Ventura Theater, 26 S. Chestnut, Ventura, Ca. Shot in High Definition in California, Mexico and Hawaii, the independent film features surfing legend, Linda Benson, 80’s champion, Kim Mearig, musician and shaper, Ashley Lloyd, and more! Producer Heather Hudson will be in attendance for a Q &.A following the 48 minute film. “I wanted to give recognition to the women, famous or not, who have paved the way for other women to surf. Each generation has made it easier for the next to get out in the water.”
