Peninsula South
Directed by Riley Blakeway. USA / Mexico. 2016. 7 min.
Director Riley Blakeway captures Herbie Fletcher’s pioneering spirit and his close relationship with his son Nathan as they set out on an expedition they’ve not made together in more than 20 years. The trip reignites their love for Baja and their deep appreciation for one another. By the late 1960s, Herbie had begun exploring Baja in search of empty lineups and adventure. As his life moved forward, he built a family that shared his love of travel. On this latest mission, Nathan discusses his father’s contagious, childlike enthusiasm for surfing and life, and shares how he hopes to pass those ideals down to the next Fletcher generation. 

Deep Islands
Directed by Luca Merli. Italy / Indonesia. 2016 .4 min.
This short film by Onde Nostre celebrates a microcosm in symbiosis and the beauty of surfing, in a dreamy paradise of the south east islands in the Indian Ocean, a fragile coral paradise that may be lost and needs to be preserved. 

Live Life Beautifully: Andy Davis
Directed by Jason Baffa. USA. 2016. 6min.
Over the past two decades Andy was the driving force behind successful surf brands such as Free, Byrd and Ando & Friends, all of which featured his art. Today he has a brand that embodies the spirit of his art called Andy Davis Designs. 

Bulan Baru
Directed by Arthur Neumeier. Netherlands. 2015. 9min.
Marlon Gerber, Mikala Jones, Tai Graham and future Desert Point star Awan Hadi could have aimed for the usual sure bets when the Indian Ocean finally came alive in 2015 during the biggest swell of the century. Instead, they caught ferries to far-flung islands for a high-risk, high-reward kind of deal. 

I Lost My Dream
Directed by Stefan Hunt. Mexico. 2015. 10 min. Spanish with English subtitles.
Moacir tries to escape his Nicaraguan life of poverty and abuse to live the American dream, but immigration laws and abandonment find him stranded in Tapachula, Mexico.  That’s where he found the children’s refuge Misión México, where Australians Alan and Pamela Skuse teach kids how to swim and surf.
