In the late 70s, surfing was professionalised by a group of young surfers, allowing them the chance to make a career out of doing what they loved most. Today the sport of Trail Running finds itself following a similar path.
‘To the Sea’ explores the similarities between these two sports through the perspectives of Salomon Runner Ryan Sandes, Pro Surfer Frank Solomon and the first ever surfing World Champion and pioneer of professional surfing, Shaun Tomson.
