Key
Points
  • When surfing makes its Olympic debut in Tokyo this summer, Team USA will roll in with two of the best women surfers on the planet.
  • Their paths to the Games took place over one heated 2019 season that whittled a stacked American pack down to two athletes, and that journey is now chronicled in Represent, a docuseries dropping May 6 on Ficto tv.
  • POPSUGAR got an exclusive first look at the trailer and can confirm: we're adding this one to our queue.
  • The series follows surfers Carissa Moore, Caroline Marks, Lakey Peterson, and Courtney Conlogue through one intense season in the World Surf League, as the four Americans vied for just two coveted Olympic spots.
  • Beyond that tight race, Represent also dives into the exclusionary, borderline "chauvinistic" beginnings of the sport and how the current crop of women are progressing surfing in leaps and bounds.
