One Winter Story is documentary film that was produced and directed by Sally Lundburg & Elizabeth Pepin in 2006. You can now purchase the DVD at our online shop, stream/download it from Amazon, or if you are an educator, you can stream it on Kanopy.

Sarah Gerhardt became a star in the surfing universe in 1999 as the first woman to slice across a monster wave at Northern California’s legendary Maverick’s. Media coverage, sponsorship and adulation followed, but Sarah’s dramatic journey from poverty and despair to accomplishment and peace went unnoticed. One Winter Story traces Sarah’s strength and determination to their roots in a beautiful montage of film, voice, memory and emotion. The surfing footage is an awesome sight but the fine, intensely immediate rendering of Sarah’s experience is this unforgettable film’s real reward.
