Beneath the Waves – Layne Beachley
Layne Beachley’s story is a testimony to the power of self-belief.
It is about the skinny little girl the called ‘Gidget’ who overcame a king tide of obstacles to become an icon in the male-dominated world of competitive surfing. Winner of a record seven women’s world championships, she also blazed trails in the mountainous waves of Hawaii’s outer reefs, earning respect where it mattered most in the water.
Beneath the surface of the happy, positive public persona is a story of loss, redemption and the search for identity. But it is also a love story, describing how Layne fell in love with Hawaiian big-wave rider Ken Bradshaw and found true happiness with INXS rock star Kirk Pengilly. Layne Beachly: Beneath the Waves is powerful, poignant and unforgettable.
