Join Bondi Surf Club’s very own Poppy Staff Olsen live at Event Cinemas and hear all about her Olympic journey at the Q&A.

Growing up on Curlewis street, Poppy and her siblings were Bondi Nippers.

A child who just loved to skate from the age of eight, Poppy became the number one female bowl skater in Australia at 14 and went on to take out bronze at the XGames at 17 – the ultimate competition in the world of skateboarding.

The same year, skateboarding was announced as an official additional sport category at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Now faced with the opportunity to represent Australia on the world stage Poppy grapples with the transition from skater to athlete and the pressure of competition mounts in a way it has never done before.

A coming of age story told over 12 years, TALL POPPY documents Poppy’s journey intimately as she navigates the uncomfortable idea of what it means to be a competitive athlete, the complexities of a relationship with a mum turned manager and finding her place in a male-dominated industry.
