The Lost Wave: An African Surf Story

"The Lost Wave" takes viewers on a thrilling journey to the wilds of West Africa and a discovery that could completely rewrite surfing history.

Join "Riding Giants" writer and renowned surf journalist Sam George as he travels with champion surfers Holly Beck and Joe Curren to the island of São Tomé in an attempt to establish the authentic African origins of the "Sport of Kings."

There, they find an African village where waves are ridden on hand-made, finless wooden surfboards - proof that surfing is an indigenous African sport.

Shot entirely in high definition, "The Lost Wave" represents a new breed of surf documentary in which the riding of waves is both celebrated and examined more closely than ever before.
