Beyond the Scars

A short film about surfing exposed, freezing corners of the North Sea. It’s about the beauty in inconsistency, the wait between weather systems and what it means to be a coldwater surfer on a fickle shore. As far from the traditional ideal of surfing as it’s possible to get, the North Sea’s cold, grey, windy waves and murky brown water make surfing here a frustrating experience.
