Tofino is a Place
Directed by Ryan Struck. Canada. 2019. 5 min.
The women’s surf community in Tofino is as unique as British Columbia is remote. The 10th annual, all women’s surf contest Queen of the Peak is a testament of the grit and determination of those who live there.

Transition

Follow Canadian surfer Noah Cohen on this autobiographical journey that sees him take on waves on his home turf and in Europe.

Transition, Volume 2
Directed by Nate Laverty. 2020. Canada. 42 min.
Set in the rugged rainforest of the west coast of Vancouver Island, the sequel to Transition brings the story of professional surfers, Pete Devries and Noah Cohen to life. When introducing a child into Pete’s life changes his priorities, mentorship becomes an important part of fulfilling his goals as a surfer. Noah’s failure to qualify for the Canadian National Surf Team alters his path as his dreams of competing in the 2020 games are now in the past. Instead, his mission becomes following the best swells from Mexico to Australia alongside good friends.
