About the Film:
Good Morning Miyazaki
Directed by Matt Wescott. Japan. 2014. 33 mins
Driven by stunning videography and subtle narrative, Good Morning Miyazaki unearths the history of the Miyazaki surf scene. Featuring local pros, groms, foreign imports and scores of worthy amateur surfers, director Matt Wescott sets out to showcase Japanese surfing at it's finest. From big waves to barrels to ten-toes-over, Good Morning Miyazaki is a visual feast of surf and soul. Think Castles in the Sky meets One California Day with a touch of Endless Summer, but in Japanese.
Directed by Sarah Menzies. USA. 2013. 10 mins.
Léa Brassy grew up surfing the warm waters of southern France, but recently made her way north for the Arctic swell. Her nomadic lifestyle takes a pause at the Unstad break in the Lofoten Islands in Northern Norway where she connects with the surrounding mountains, cold water, and simple living.
Directed by Chris Burkard, USA. 2013. 23 mins
Russia jumps in at the deep end of surfing’s exploratory boundaries when Keith Malloy, Dane Gudauskas, Trevor Gordon, and Cyrus Sutton journey to the shores of remote Kamchatka on Russia’s Pacific rim. Here, the only way to scour remote breaks is by Soviet-era truck or rickety helicopter. This is surfing back to basics, beautifully captured by cinematographer Chris Burkard.
Cradle of Storms
Directed by Bryce Lowe-White + Ben Weiland. USA. 2013. 23 mins
Alex Gray, Josh Mulcoy, and Pete Devries went on a journey through the remote Aleutian Arc of Alaska, the birthplace of storm systems that send swell back to the rest of civilization. They braved heavy weather, flew on rickety prop planes, and ate seal meat en route to discovering one of the best cold-water slabs in the world. The film follows the cold-water crew as they traverse the island on quads, tracking pulses of swell to remote bays and never-before-surfed points. Set against the stunning volcanic backdrop of the Aleutian Islands, The Cradle of Storms is cold-water surf exploration at its finest.
