Mathilde Zampieri – Girl In The Sea

Born in France yet Mathilde Zampieri’s family relocated to the island of Raiatea, in French Polynesia, when she was young. She was taught how to windsurf from an early age by her father… a professional windsurf instructor. Raiatea’s magical lagoons made for the perfect training ground.

Top sponsors such as Air Tahiti Nui and eyewear brand Julbo backed Mathilde from an early age and now the film “Vahine I Te Moana,” or “Girl In The Sea” showcases her abilities as a windsurfer and explores her home island of Raiatea.

“As a director, I feel that my primary responsibility on a project is to share a meaningful story. That is why this concept resonated so strongly with me” – filmmaker Colter Johnson.

Mathilde Zampieri is gaining recognition on the PWA World Tour, all at the young age of 16!

“My ultimate goal for this film is to share Mathilde’s story around the world so that young people everywhere can see what happens when you stay true to yourself and your community.” – Colter Johnson
