'THE SEARCH OF SURGE' SEBASTIAN RIBEIRO
With a pure wave-riding history and surfing background, Sebastian Ribeiro is known to have incredible style in the waves. Smooth and fluid, he never rushes, rather he’s patient, waiting for the wave to open up and offer the perfect moment to unleash his full potential. ‘The Search of Surge’ follows him to Cape Verde, a destination where extremes drastically collide and Mother Nature shows her strength. Stunning cinematography and inspiring action, we hope you enjoy the ride.
