In September 2015 Mr B went to the Mentawai Islands on the 4th Surfboards Team to document their 10 day trip to the most perfect waves in the world.
This short film was created for 4th Surfboards online content and for screening at The London Surf Film Festival.
Here’s what Luke Hart, shaper and marketing for 4th Surfboards, had to say about the film:
We wanted to create a movie, that really reflected the 4th brand and our team riders in an honest way, we didn’t want to try and be something we aren’t, our brief was pretty simple really just to be ourselves and document what happened. As a group of surfers the 4th team have such varied personalities and styles we wanted to capture that along side their high performance surfing.
We wanted to capture what makes “us” as a team, we are not sure what it even is but hopefully people will get it and see how much fun this crew had together in a different environment, how they stood out as individuals, in an amazing setting with really fun waves.
The result, captured by various angles sewn together with an eclectic soundtrack from punk to swing and anything in between is “us.” We hope you like it.
