Filmed in Southern California and on the North Shore of Oahu, 'Watching Water' sets out to explore the visceral essence of surfing. The sounds, the solitude, the friendships formed, the experience of being in the ocean and living ultimately by its rules.

From that first turn, to the first win. The local break and being far from home. The changes, the moments - and the courage to face them. Being with friends - and losing them. This is a story, about what it means, to be out there.

" I came to California with a small idea and a borrowed camera that I'd never used. I didn't know anyone, or what to ask. From a series of small coincidental events and people believing in the idea I began to create a film. I had grown up wanting to know what they did out there, I'd see them sitting for hours in car parks or on beaches staring out to sea. What were they looking at, what could they see out there that I couldn't? What made them keep going back?

There are no prefect barrels or airs, just people talking about what they love and how it’s shaped them. To me, it’s in those moments of being passionate, of losing yourself so entirely in something you love that we get the closest to being alive, and surfing for me epitomizes that.

I finally rode a way the other day, I'm still learning, but I get it. "
