The International Surfing Association is proud to present “For a Better Surfing Future”, the first ever ISA movie. It features the life of the five 2007 ISA Individual Scholarship Program recipients: Juninho Urcia from Peru, Imani Wilmot from Jamaica, Guillermo Satt from Chile, Diego Vargas from Ecuador and Lungani Memani from South Africa.
This is the story of five young surfers and their dreams, struggling in countries where the odds of success are stacked against them. Five local directors give us an inside look of the day to day lives of those who follow the great dream of becoming professional surfers.
They are good surfers, good students and great role models for their community.
In five short films, we take the journey to the deep blue of the Jamaican Caribbean, the desert beaches of Northern Peru, the green of the beautiful Ecuadorian waves, the heavy South Pacific waves of Arica, Chile and the Xhosa view of surfing in South Africa.
Five young surfers and their dreams.
Five stories, full of stoke, persistence and love for surfing.
Five stories, in five countries, of five surfers searching for a better surfing future.
“For a Better Surfing Future” is a free movie. It may be screened, copied downloaded or uploaded everywhere in the world. It is the ISA’s desire to share with the world these beautiful stories.
During the sixth edition of the Quiksilver ISA World Junior Surfing Championship, on Saturday, May 31, in the VVF Hotel of Seignosse, France, the movie premiered in front of the representatives of the 27 participating countries, as well as important industry and National Federations names. It was a great moment in which the invitees were able to see a different type of surfing movie.
