Chicks on Boards

2 x 52' (ENG), 5 x 30' (ENG, GER, FRE), 2 x 45' (GER)
Chicks on Boards is a cinematic journey into the universe and culture of female rebels on surfboards

Surfing is an expression of freedom and limitlessness. But the seemingly endless freedom between the skies and the waves has clear borders on land. Surfing women are considered an insult across many cultures. Therefore, many of these women surf secretly - risking a lot for their passion. Through the artistic lens of cinematography we capture these campaigners in their elements as they claim freedom against all social odds – even if their passion is a provocation of their culture.


The film features five outstanding and courageous female surfers. Through their shared passion the camera captures a unique insight into the surfing girls’ lives among adventure, freedom and borders.
