Female surfers break conventions on their way to cresting waves around the world. Femme Ocean profiles five women from Portugal, Morocco and Sri Lanka, who fell in love with a sport long dominated by men. They are pioneers, athletes, adventurers, activists and artists and share a unique bond with surf and the sea. Ultimately, these surfers are testaments to the unique bond between women and the tides. With Joana Andrade, Lizzy, Teresa Ayala, Maryam El Gardoum, Sithmi Nawodya and Devika Salomon.
