Cold brutal beauty

Uncommon Ideals

Many thanks to Carve magazine for alerting me to these 2 short award-winning surf films that epitomise the new Arty Farty Surf film genre.

‘Dark side of the Lens’ is shot in Ireland.

‘Uncommon Ideals’ is shot around the North Sea, including Norway.

Both ably demonstrate that the tropical ideal of surfing often peddled in our mags and in the mainstream media is only one definition of surfing beauty.
