NORTH MEn

A documentary project about surfing on the NORTH COAST of NORTHERN IRELAND, showcasing the achievements of some of its key surfers.

 
 

They've all surfed popular international waters and yet choose to remain North on the coast they call home.
Each has their own experience and story to tell and although different, there are certain things that unite them.
One, is that some of the best surf they've ever had has been here.
The other, the same sea that sustains them while giving each their own unique connection.

 
 
 
 
I like that term ‘people of the sea’, because it’s true.
The sea is a being.
