Trouble is an inspiring and emotional piece that will leave viewers enthralled and with a true feeling of connection to the champion.
About Lisa Andersen:
Lisa has been in the limelight since 1986, when she racked up over 30 National Scholastic Surfing Association trophies in under a year. Soon after, she learned how to adapt her explosive and progressive free surfing to the hyper competitive ASP World Tour, leading to the amazing four World Championship titles from 1994-1997.
In 1995, Lisa became the first woman to grace the cover of Surfer Magazine, which also named her one of the “25 Most Influential Surfers of all Time.” Sports Illustrated also named her one of the “Top Female Athletes of the 20th Century.”
Nowadays, Lisa continues to compete from time to time and remains an icon to everyone who surfs – male or female. She is revered as an inspiration and a pioneer who trail-blazed a path for today’s generation of professional women surfers.
