Synopsis: Performing Monkeys is aimed at inspiring surfers in Britain & Ireland through high performance surfing in our own waves in all conditions. I wanted to show what is possible surfing in Britain and Ireland and show all the amazing aspects of surfing in this country – from huge airs to big wave surfing to Severn Bore river surfing. I also wanted to keep the film fun and easy to watch making sure the film doesn’t take itself too seriously. I think the result is an exciting and fun film that inspires you to get out there.
The film is shot mostly in UK and Ireland but has some footage from abroad.
