A New Wave Rising Longboarding UK 2K

A New Wave Rising takes a rounded look at the British longboarding scene from it’s 60′s roots to the year 2000. It features international surfers including privileged and unique footage of the late Jay Moriarty and also of 2001 World Champion Beau Young surfing famed UK breaks; 1998 European Champion, ‘Guts’ Griffiths, and Amateur European Champion, Sam Bleakley, plus a host of other 2K Champions and renowned UK surfers. The New Wave includes a bunch of young ‘kids’ who, to put it simply, were showing the way forward.

If you thought the UK was a place lacking in waves, and surfing is all shortboarding and pretty slack, then you’ve got it wrong. This film shows clean waves and plenty of power, but most of all it shows that the British Isles are an undiscovered longboarders’ haven. It’s a film made to be different and made for individuals who seek self expression. A great soundtrack and a radical intermission, plus some skateboarding like you’ve never seen before.

Running time approximately 100 minutes
