Leah Dawson is one of the most talented surfers that I know. A true water woman. She’s also incredibly creative . We grew up surfing contests together– her surfing inspired me then and she still inspires me in so many ways, now.
Join 9 year old Lily Richards and her friend Honu the turtle, as they take our hearts into the Hawaiian sea. Filmmaker Leah Dawson collaborated with Lily to tell a story true from Lily’s heart, giving her a canvas to share her endearing energy, incredible knowledge, her love of the sea, and remarkable musicality.
The song performed in the film was an improvisation by Lily and Leah on stage at the Kanikapila (Open Mic) Night at Surfer, The Bar at Turtle Bay Resort.
