Christian Moutinho, an excellent surfer and friend I met while shooting my short Nova Scotian surf film "North/Northeast" invited me along to film a surf trip to Mainland Mexico. I was super stoked and agreed to be a part of the adventure. I met up with him and fellow Canadian surfers Leah Oke and Keegan Varney several months later in Mex to put a video together.
This film has transformed from a simple short for the web into both an introduction and inspiration to a much bigger and deeper project: The Water's Edge Project.

Shot on the Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 60D, and GoPro Hero.
Sound recorded with the Zoom h4n.
