You’ll meet New Jersey and New York City surfers, Aussie surfers who surf the 50 states, California surfers who walk the coast, surfing monks, and kids in Bali who pay for their education through surfing. Other films explore the impact of the surf industry on the environment and the spiritual aspects of surfing.
