Ishita Malaviya, India's first female surfer, is joined by a unique and talented group of women- Crystal Thornburg-Homcy, Lauren Hill, Emi Koch, Kate Baldwin, and Liz Clark. With unshakable determination for a better world, they travel through Southern India documenting the ways in which surfing, yoga, and ecological creativity are bringing hope and fueling change for local people and the planet.
The saturated hues of India set the scene for this 16mm film documentary captured by award winning cinematographer, Dave Homcy. BEYOND THE SURFACE touches upon eco tourism, youth and women's empowerment, biocentrism, and personal growth along with the pursuit of India's perfect waves.
Through the medium of film, this group of women hopes to inspire others to seek a deeper connection to their fellow humans and nature.
