USA PREMIERE Brazilian big-wave surfer Maya Gabeira pursues her dreams in the male-dominated sport as naysayers second-guess her every move. Filmmaker Stephanie Johnes follows the world champion over several years as she perseveres through setbacks, injuries, and a near-death experience while navigating the choppy waters of the competitive sports business. When Maya gets on the board, you may find your own toes curling in anticipation of a wild ride. – Thom Powers
