Episode Description:

In this episode I speak with Heather Hudson, self proclaimed “obsessed” surfer for the past 40 years and soulful mother. Heather felt called to be a filmmaker when her boys were young, even though she didn’t know the first thing about filmmaking.

Her courageous leap into the unknown led her to her passion of capturing and highlighting people’s stories and journeys. Her films beautifully capture her love for the water, for the people around her and for her own life and family.

Heather inspires our listeners to believe in their passions, even if it isn’t the”practical” thing to do. Her films,The Women and the Waves Onand The Women and the Waves Two, have been renowned throughout the U.S. and worldwide.

    This is what I heard. What starts as an inspiration for Heather becomes her reality. ‘No’ doesn’t stop her. Surf? I can do that. Mom? I can do that. Filmmaker? I can do that. She’s never done it before, so she learns!!! Fear doesn’t stop her and she is not afraid of hard work.
