The Sightings Series is a collection of short surf films shot in Indonesia during the filming of Sink Swim.
Sink Swim is a fictional story set in an idyllic tropical location. A place where Mathilda and John have stumbled upon their own perfect utopia; a land of freedom, warmth and perfect waves. However as Mathilda and John would soon find out, it is all to easy to become lost in paradise.
It's always a pleasure to see these guys charging Pe'ahi. Besides all the circus that it became, it`s still moving to see that tow-in is losing its space for paddle in surfing, even in extreme conditions.
The evolution is visible in every session, the boys are getting barreled like they never could imagine in Jaws and they making it looks like an easy thing to do.
