About the Film:

Part of Honolulu Surf Film Festival 2019.

Directed by Ishka Folkwell. 2018. Australia. 42 min.
A cinematic journey of surfing, simplicity and appreciation, Thank You Mother explores the connection between surfer Torren Martyn and shaper Simon Jones with narration by legendary surf filmmaker Albert Falzon.

Shot on location in South Africa, Indonesia and Australia, director Ishka Folkwell's original and artful approach to filmmaking captures something of the essence of these places, bringing them to life on screen. Nick Bampton's original musical score was composed for the film, so as Torren Martyn glides with style and power, carving beautiful lines into clean walls, the music echoes the mood and rhythm of his movements perfectly.
