Synopsis

Wilma Johnson was living on the west coast of Ireland with her family, balancing the challenges of being an artist, wife and mother, until, in her forties, she was gripped by a deep desire to seize the day, and moved to Biarritz to become a surfer. The plan hits troubled waters as she arrives in France with her marriage on the rocks and three children who speak no French. Her first attempts at surfing are disastrous; resulting in bruises, broken bones and a damaged ego, but when she experiences the euphoric feeling of catching her first wave and sets up the Mamas Surf Club, it's all worth it.

Wilma Johnson is an artist and writer born in London in 1960. She has a degree in Fine Art from St Martin's College of Art. During the 1980s she found inspiration for her paintings while hitch-hiking round Iceland and Lapland, Italy and the Scottish Highlands. In 1987 she spent a year travelling round Mexico and Guatemala, following the fiesta and painting in rundown hotel rooms. In 1991 she moved to a fishing village on the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland, where she lived for ten years, before moving to Biarritz in 2001 to become a surfer. She has three children and way too many animals. www.surfmama.me
