Splinters by Adam Pesce

I love surf culture and my wish is to be able to surf one day, provided I am capable of waking up at the crack of dawn to take some lessons first, which so far looks very unlikely. So for now, I will just continue to admire from a distance.

Splinters is a documentary directed and filmed by Adam Pesce, it's about the evolution of indigenous surfing in Papua New Guinea. It is currently in post-production and I have no idea when will it be released or where, but I'm really looking forward to watching this.

"In the 1980s an intrepid Australian pilot left behind a surfboard in the seaside village of Lido. Twenty years on, surfing is not only a pillar of village life but also a means to prestige. With no access to economic or educational advancement, let alone running water and power, village life is hermetic. A spot on the Papua New Guinea national surfing team is the way to see the wider world; the only way."
