SVFF Best of the Fest – Maya and the Wave

The Argyros

2024 Sun Valley Film Festival Award for Best Feature: Documentary. Maya and the Wave Maya Gabeira grew up in Brazil with a dream to surf competitively. Like any surfer, she had to overcome the hazards of the ocean through training and discipline. But she was also forced to confront deep chauvinism in the male-dominated sport as naysayers second-guessed her every move.
