Short Film - Portrait of a Surfer
Generally speaking, nearly every image we see of surfing is of impossibly perfect waves in some far away place like Indo, Tahiti or G Land, with sun kissed guys on shortboards ripping cutbacks. This is where the short film Portrait of a Surfer differs. Shot on location in West Cornwall England, the film profiles multiple British and European longboard champion Sam Bleakley: surfer, explorer and writer. It is an insightful glimpse into a surfer's state of mind, wander lust and the ultimate draw back home.
