Surf's Up
by Melissa Roberts

Surfing culture is often portrayed as the epitome of ‘chill’, but this short film following Hawaiian surfer Julian Williams, challenges that notion. Charting his life thus far, the film recounts Williams’ struggle against personal and professional barriers imposed by racism, as he works towards his hope of becoming the first Hawaiian born African-American pro surfer.

It’s a well-crafted debut short film from director Loris Russier. One and it captures the rawness of the scenery that Williams’ life is set against, and utilises the power of the ocean to deliver a tale of overcoming adversity.

On the surface, this film appears to aim to inspire a more diverse generation of surfers through the story of Williams’ tireless resilience, but its depth reveal a love story to people and places.
