TAKING BACK THE WAVES – Trailer

Featuring: Cass Collier & Ian Armstrong
Director: Nicolaas Hofmeyr
Genre: Documentary
Release date: 2005

Cass Collier and Ian Armstrong push the limits in Cape Town’s big waves, and go on to claim competitive victory. But it was Cass’s father Ahmed, who resisted apartheid restrictions and coached his son to become a champion. Now Cass echoes his father’s earlier efforts, as he and Ian teach a new generation of children to surf, but they find that reversing the effects of the past is not easy.

`Containing exciting surfing sequences, atmospheric visuals of the ocean environment, and a compelling personal and political story, Taking Back the Waves is a unique contribution to the surf film genre, and South Africa’s first full length surfing film.’ WAVESCAPES
