Varied surf cultures of Africa spotlighted in new project
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 28 August, 2017 - After three years of production the new movie from the makers of the critically acclaimed surf documentary "The Old, the Young & the Sea" moves closer to its world premiere.
"Beyond - An African Surf Documentary" explores the unique board-riding cultures found in Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Gambia and Senegal. Dropping into some of the more isolated coastlines in the world, the film makers spent three months on the road filming, photographing and interviewing a host of fascinating characters.
They have all found ways to adapt to the harshness of their respective environs while still carving out surfing and other adventurous lifestyles in their home countries.
