The Single Fin Mingle 2019 Film

From the periphery, a surfing competition can seem insignificant. But when they are done so well, with a spirit so full of passion, love and enthusiasm, it is it clear they can make a positive impact in the world - The Single Fin Mingle is doing just that.

In March of 2019, The Single Fin Mingle celebrated half a decade of success. Living up to its status as the ‘best weekend of the year’ for hundreds of individuals from around the world who travel from far and wide to the small seaside village located in the South Island of New Zealand – Sumner, Christchurch.

These Waters

Filmed over the past winter in surf spots all over New Zealand. The idea behind all of this was to document winter through my eyes, the road trips, the cold weather, the people. No pro surfers in this clip, just the frothiest south islanders you'll ever meet. To put it lightly it's been an experience and a half shooting this film. I've met so many people, drunk a whole lot of coffee, clocked up a heap of kilometers and experienced a whole lot of New Zealand. Part one is the just the beginning. Thanks to everyone along the way, your hospitality, patience and generosity.
Here's to next winter.
