Rise documents the latest surf voyage of an independent group of core surfers in search of big, perfect waves, way off the beaten track in Europe and beyond. The cast of time-served local chargers and top pros escape the crowds and contest scene for some epic conditions at primo locations and heavy new discoveries.
Locations: Caithness, North Sea, Ireland, Aquitaine, Canaries, Cornwall, Mexico, Indo, Portugal, Cote Basque, Hawaii, Shetlands “Some you’ll know, some you won’t!”
RISE is an independent production from Tynemouth-based photographer Lewis Arnold and surfers Jesse and Owain Davies and features an original score by Dylan Johnson. This indie production is now available from usual outlets and via distributors at x-tremevideo.com
“I’ve just had the pleasure of watching RISE and it’s great! As a Saltburn boy (a long time ago) it was like watching a collection of my favourite waves and great to see the Davies ripping and charging!!!!”
- Andy Cummins, Campaigns Officer
“Watching Rise made me want to pack up the van and hit the road in search of my own sunrises and coastal beauty. It just goes to show that with a little searching there are still plenty of waves still going unridden in Europe despite the huge crowds at almost every well-known surfspot. All you need is a decent wetsuit, some spare time and the right attitude.”
- Dan Haylock, Low Pressure
