WAYNE

Wayne Lynch burst onto the Australian surfing scene in the 1960s and rode a wave like no one else. He opened up fresh possibilities with a radically new vertical style. He was a champion, a draft dodger, an outsider, a revolutionary, a messiah, an environmentalist, a victim, a wild man, a pauper and an enigma. He tested himself against the big waves and produced something beautiful and exhilarating and elegant in the process.
If you’ve ever surfed, or if you appreciate the sheer grace of a board rider racing down the face of a big wave, this biography of one of Australia’s legends will make your heart beat that little bit faster and have you longing for the freedom, beauty and simplicity of a wave and a board.

ALASKA

When Mike McCune turned 50 years old he realized he needed to do something, having thrown everything at building a successful business he was tired and smoking two packs a day……what began as an exercise in becoming fit turned into a passion that led to Mike selling his house, buying an old fishing boat and having a surf adventure of a lifetime…
Set in the Gulf of Alaska along an isolated and scenically spectacular winter coastline, Alaska Sessions is an original surf film that captures a soulful search for undiscovered waves…

A team of filmmakers and photographers goes on a road trip along the European route from France to Portugal in two old VW buses.
The filmmakers dive into a world that is inspired by the quest for freedom and self-realization, by the search for a home and great waves.
“ The Old, the Young & the Sea” is full of cultural discoveries and inspiring encounters.
Coastal residents tell personal stories about their lives and the Sea. The Old, the Young & the Sea” is a vivid documentary road movie about the people and lifestyles of the “European Leg”
– the classic European surfing route along the Atlantic coast from southwest France through northern Spain to the Portuguese capital Lisbon.
The film paints a colourful portrait of the European surf culture and ignores at the same time the typical boarders of the genre classic surf movie by taking a glimpse at matters
beyond the sporting aspects.
