Sports broadcaster Selema Masekela narrates this engaging animated documentary about the origins of surfing. First observed by Captain Cook in 1779, the sport has braved colonialism, Christianity, and racism to become a global phenomenon. However, Masekela thinks further progress can still be made.

He reckons that the sooner people realise Mother Ocean cares not for arbitrary rules or regulations, the better. "It doesn't matter what colour, gender, religion, or financial background that you come from," Masekela explains, "as she will still smack you down whenever she feels like you deserve it". A vivid description matched by the film's colour palette.
