A four-time world champ and inductee into the Surfer Hall of Fame, Lisa Andersen is a true icon. She discovered surfing in her native Florida when she was 13, before running away to Huntington Beach to pursue her career. While her personal life was rife with abusive relationships, in the water, she was something else, quickly becoming a young champion before more obstacles presented themselves. Surf writer and director Chas Smith presents an intimate portrait of a self-made, American woman.
