Exploring the connection between surfer Torren Martyn and his long time friend shaper Simon Jones of ‘Morning of the Earth Surfboards’. This naturally led to the doorstep of another friend and mentor, Albe Falzon and the film became more about connection, creativity and friendship, about surfing, being content and living simply. Narrated by Albert Falzon with a beautiful message of kindness this is a film we would love you to see. @torrenmartyn @ishkaimagery @morningoftheearthsurfboards surfboard 7’9″ channel bottom twin – Original soundtrack by @nickbampton.music
