"Becoming Westerly" reveals the story behind the transformation of surfing champion Peter Drouyn into Westerly Windina.

Drouyn was a champion surfer with a touch of genius who forever changed the face of surfing by introducing the concept of the man-on-man competition format.

Known for his aggressive yet elegant style on the wave, Drouyn was also a lawyer, heartthrob actor and showman extraordinaire, famous for his eccentric behaviour and ambitious ideas.

For nearly a decade now, Peter Drouyn has been living as a woman, Westerly Windina. The surfing community is at once awestruck, sceptical and supportive.

A portrait of two extraordinary people in one, and a very personal account of the courage and self-belief it has taken for Peter to become Westerly.
