In life, the best things are almost always the simple things. Surfing, in its essence, is simple. Much like music. Born for fun, pure enjoyment and intrinsically connect by those that love both. This film is an exploration of the link between music and surfing, through creating something new and sharing it with friends. Shot on the beautiful and wave rich Hebrides.
