Great alternative surf movie
8 March 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Classic movie for all surfers out there who do it tough searching for waves. It also has a nice spiritual side to it which most surfers can identify with. The short film is set in New York City and the nearby ocean vista.

The movie looks at monks who surf, they are students of the late Spiritual leader Sri Chinmoy and it looks at there forthcoming relationship with the ocean and meditation. It has been on at heaps of surf festivals which shows how good it is. First time director Sanjay Rawal had his next big project on at Tribecca so he has some talent to scenically capture moments on film.
