"6 Months" is new bodyboard movie by Ewan Donnachie and Lucas Vazquez. The film promises to show the best of Australian wave riding in the world's best spots: Tahiti, New South Wales, Queensland, West and South Oz, Shipsterns have loads of adrenaline to offer.

"6 Months" is a celebration of travel, adventure, mateship and the incredible waves that were on offer during the Winter of 2011.

From early April through until the end of September 2011, Ewan Donnachie chased waves high and low at a frenetic pace, along with good mates Jase Finlay, Damien Martin, Chris James, Nick Gornall and assorted other riders.

There were last-minute calls, delays, cancelled flights, lost baggage, injuries, unreliable swell patterns and adverse weather conditions, but the mission has been accomplished.

The bodyboarding film provides a rare insight into the lives and mindsets of these free-surfers and the equally dedicated photographers and filmers who document their exploits. "6 Months" aims to inspire.
