1. Born of mistral winds and witness to the birth of Western Civilization, the waves of the Italian coast have carried merchants, fishermen, travelers and kings. Preserved like a Roman ruin, the surf of the Italian coast now carries surfer, artist, and environmentalist Chris Del Moro on a pilgrimage back to his ancestral homeland to explore a culture where old-world-convention and traditional craftsmanship have matured into a modern surf lifestyle and destination.

    Filmmaker Jason Baffa chronicles Chris and his friends Dave Rastovich, Lauren Lyndsey Hill, Conner & Parker Coffin and Italian stand-outs Alessandro Ponzanell and Leonardo Fioravanti as they explore the burgeoning new surf culture blossoming among the Mediterranean's oldest and cherished traditions.

    A visual epic captured in stunning 35mm, Bella Vita is an intimate and powerful journey of self-discovery, seeped in culture, tradition, and passion- where family comes first.

  5. Serendipity, the documentary, is a film about Anthony Hussein Hinde, Tony's story is one of the truly great surf fairytales. Tony was a 20 year old Australian who went on a surfing adventure at a time when many of the world's best surf breaks where yet to be discovered

    The word Serendipity means the unlikely and unintended discovery of good fortune; it is a beneficial accident or a cool suprise. By the most Serendipitous chain of events Tony found himself shipwrecked on a deserted island in the middle of the Indian ocean, on the then-unknown Maldives.

    Tony stumbled across a multitude of discoveries, perfect surf on a chain of tropical coral attols, eastern islamic culture and a new personal identity.

    Tony had access to a fleet of perfect waves for 15 years. Alone! Over that time he had only a few select friends who visited. Amazingly non of the lucky few broke the agreed-upon code of silence.

    Eventually Tony's secret was exposed, he protected those waves as long as he could. Tony realized that if he could not own the waves then he would provide the best surf travel experience by starting the only dedicated and most successful surf camp in the Maldives.

    Tony Hussein Hinde is considered to be the father of surfing in the Maldives, not only did he kick started the nation's emerging tourism industry he also found his own personal nirvana and livelihood.
