White Waves surf movie Cover
White Waves English with Spanish subtitles
Litter, wastewater, industrial products and chemicals - it is all ending up in the sea. This is often happening without anybody hearing anything about it. But there are some people that observe and feel the pollution day by day with their own body: surfers. As soon as there is some swell they grab their board and ride the waves, in winter and summer. Water is their life. And they want to protect it. Their love of nature and the water gives them the strength to go out, investigate and search for the source of the pollution. They start talking to people who were involved, to politicians and to the industry. They even initiate scientific studies in the sea and in rivers. If necessary they go to court. They want to surf white waves again.
Headache surf movie Cover
Headache German with English subtitles
When you live in Germany, it is always quite a mission to fulfill your need for waves–either you board a plane to Portugal, the Canaries, or somewhere further and more exotic, or you have to jump in your car and travel down to wonderful France. If you are not on vacation but still you are hungry for surf, you need to explore the limited German coastline or drive up to neighboring Denmark. With 6mm rubber, the quest in the water got easier, but the journey is the same. But it makes it mellower to surf in wind, snow and ice. We all are cold water surfers always looking for wind swell and the rare groundswell coming from the Atlantic.

See the sport of surfing as it’s never been captured before in John Florence and Blake Vincent Kueny’s second signature release, this time in association with the award-winning studio Brain Farm. The first surf film shot in 4K, View From A Blue Moon follows the world’s most dynamic surfer John Florence and his closest friends from his home on the North Shore of Oahu to his favorite surfing destinations around the globe. From the dreamy blue perfection of the South Pacific to the darkest uncharted waters of Africa (and everywhere in between), Florence faces a broad spectrum of emotions as he continues to seal his legacy as one of the most gifted surfers ever. And while the young Hawaiian is pulled in increasingly different directions, there is no form of pressure that will keep him from his ultimate goal — to redefine what is possible in the ocean.
