“Nancy” a short film about Nancy Meherne

The description:

Nancy Meherne, 92, lives a simple life by the sea in Sumner, New Zealand, gardening and hitting the surf on a board made by Christchurch’s legendary gumboot-manufacturing Skellerup factory. The surfboard – made in the 1970s – is a little worse for wear, but Nancy – made in the 1920s – exudes an infectious amount of joy riding the waves on her vintage piece of foam.

Nancy died in 2022.

Here’s the article about her attached to the short film, from The Guardian.

I’ve never heard of her before this morning. Riding waves, riding a bike, dancing to FM radio is the way to be.
