Against the Grain

Against the Grain

Beyond the walls of typecast culture lies a world full of movement, inspiration and challenges.

"Against The Grain" offers an eye-opening perspective on wave riding through the journeys and reflections of a nomadic crew of individuals otherwise known as bodyboarders.

Although a film about bodyboarding, the lack of stand-up should not prejudice against you from checking out this film. And if it does, it's your loss. With this film, Cornwall's Mickey Smith can claim a place amongst the world's best up-and-coming surf film-makers.

A great soundtrack backs up thoughtful comment and incredible footage from these shores and afar. A film following the sport of bodyboarding around the world.

Featuring 2003 footage of bodyboarding from Australia, Tahiti, Hawaii, Ireland and Cornwall.
