There are a lot of people out there who don’t understand why Alana Blanchard markets herself the way she does. They say she sets a bad image for woman’s surfing, but if you looked into what it takes to be a professional female surfer you would understand.
Uncharted Waters, The Personal History of Wayne Lynch, has hit the ground running in Australia, and is currently screening at over thirty cinemas in every state of Australia.
Women’s surfing content doesn’t need to be so black and white. We don’t want woman in sport to be sexualized, but it doesn’t mean you have to completely ignore the fact that surfing is a beautiful sport and woman of the ocean be confident and happy with how they look.
For past 18 months, I’ve been working as Director of Photography on the film “Uncharted Waters.” Directed by Craig Griffin, the documentary shows an insight into Wayne Lynch’s life story which has never been seen before.
Check out the following edit. We hope our endless wanderings brighten your day.
Wayne Lynch completely stills rips at 60, and it’s great to see the amazing connection he has with his son Jarrah.
As the most Googled surfer on the planet, most people seem to take Alana on face value, but I really like showing people that she is more than just a swimwear model.
So It Goes, starring Felicity Palmateer, demonstrates that although people can tell you which way to go, in the end you have to forge your own path.
