Laura Enever has always been a surf fan favorite.

Behind her candid looks, blue eyes, and snow-white hair, there's a professional surfer for whom impossible is nothing.

The Australian won the 2009 ASP Women's World Junior Championships and turned pro in 2011.

Laura Enever spent seven seasons competing at the highest level on the World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT).

But in a life-altering change of plans, she attempted to surf the most dangerous waves on the planet.

"Undone" is a documentary that follows the life and career of the Sydney-born athlete who has always felt attracted to dangerously huge waves.

Since 2018, Enever has spent most of the time chasing southern winter swells and competing on the Women's Big Wave Tour (BWT).

But whenever she finds time and the weather charts go red, Laura puts on her free surfing life jacket, gets on a plane, and heads to the eye of the storm.

The 56-minute film was directed by Steve Wall, a cinematographer inspired by stories of powerful human endeavor.

"Undone" is an honest portrait of a female surfer who doesn't let setbacks stop her momentum.

You'll witness perfectly ridden waves, demonstrations of commitment and courage, but also horrific wipeouts and beatings, undesired injuries, and random moments of misfortune and failure.

The documentary shows us Enever taking on Shipstern Bluff and other Australian slabs in grand fashion.

Her latest project is also accompanied by a 120-page book featuring photos by Matt Dunbar, Nick Green, Stu Gibson, Duncan Macfarlane, and Simon Williams, as well as interviews with Joel Parkinson, Layne Beachley, Stephanie Gilmore, and other world-class surfers.

Don't be fooled by her child's smile. Laura Enever is a maverick in the making.
