Yes, we know it’s a bit old. But it’s beautiful. This short film is part of the Short Stories project, established by Relentless Energy Drink. This project challenged filmmakers to create their own mini opus, to explore and celebrate ‘no half measures’ in film. Irish surf photographer Mickey Smith definitely defined it.

Together with Allan Wilson as director of photography, he shows a side to surfing that few of us, as observers or surfers, will glimpse: the life of the photographer.

It’s about passion, it’s about being willing to give up anything to do whatever you want to do. No half measures. We like that.
