The Lost Wave
This documentary picked up a few film fest awards last year and is being released on DVD this week. The film documents a journey by noted surf historian Sam George and several surfers to the island nation of Sao Tome, and it aims to prove that surfing is an indigenous African sport. The sport has flourished on the impoverished island for generations, with villagers riding the waves on finless wooden boards.
