SWEET ADVENTURE Dir. Peter Hamblin
There are those movies that some along that capture the moment, the magic, the zeitgeist and ‘Sweet Adventure’ the latest masterpiece from award winning filmmaker Peter Hamblin is just one of those rare gems.
Combining jaw dropping surfing, stunning cinematography, secret spots, new discoveries, good times and more we follow ground breaking surfers Albee Layer and Matt Meola plus skate megastar Nora Vasconcellos from the thumping waves of Maui to the jungle point breaks and empty beaches of El Salvador in search of the perfect wave. Channelling the spirt of surf classic, The Endless Summer, woven with thoughtful insights from Selema Masekela and sprinkled with that Hamblin magic dust, what they find is so much more.
As the world begins to open up once again, this must-see travelogue stirs the wanderlust, reignites the stoke and reminds us all of just what we’ve been missing – those good times shared with old friends in new places.
Watching this in the cold, dark winter will have you assembling your crew and packing your bags before the end credits even roll, delivering you just in time for the sweet spot in that peak surf season for your own Sweet Adventure…
