A surf documentary about West Africa's amazing countries: Sierra Leone and Liberia

These countries share a long history of violence and disease. But they have more in common. Both Sierra Leone and Liberia have stunning coastlines. Beautiful beaches with lush backgrounds are home to local youth of Bureh Town (Sierra Leone) and Roberstport (Liberia). Almost by accident they have learned how to surf. And that's what they like to do best or is there more in life?

A teaser!

There's finally something to show! Two and a half minutes of images on our way to a full film. You'll here the voice of one of the town elders giving the Sierra Leone surfers a blessing just before their trip to Liberia. Many thanks to all the people who back this project.

Development!

Just wanted to share this promising Inertia article with you about the UNDP seeing surfing as a means to international development. 

Surfing as a sport has great potential for youth development.
