These two films give audiences a taste of what it’s like to surf in beautifully blue warm waters around the world. 

Blue Intensity
Directed by George Trimm. 2017. USA. 14 min.
This new short by George Trimm features lives up to its name by featuring stunning water cinematography and surfing by Dane Gudauskas, Nathan Fletcher, and others.

The Church of the Open Sky
Directed by Nathan Oldfield. 2017. Australia. 54 min.
The Church of the Open Sky is a visual love poem that explores gratefully lived surfing journeys. Shot on location in Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, and Sri Lanka, the film features Dave Rastovich, Lauren Lindsey Hill, Tom Wegener, Belinda Baggs, CJ Nelson, Alex Knost, Johnny Abegg, Neal Purchase Jr, Jasson Salisbury, Devon Howard and many other surfers. The film is an inspired and endearing representation of the surfing experience, where all participants are worthy and welcomed—to learn, play, and grow together—in inclusive, sacred playgrounds beneath The Church of the Open Sky.
