“Paving the Waves” covers the stories of 4 different female surfers born and raised in the 805. We hear how generationally the surf community has been primarily male-dominated, and how it affects the female surfers. The film covers the surf history of Ventura’s trailblazer female surfer Mary Monks aka “Mondo’s Mary.” The females in the film share the challenges they have faced, the inclusion they have yet to see, as well as the small steps they have seen for equality in the water.
