The month of May produced some unprecedented times across the world, with restrictions in place across all walks of life due to COVID-19. It was a time that spurred creativity, and with lots of time on their hands, that creativity saw an outlet in the surf breaks off Australia’s Gold Coast. The film Home School shows off the best young surfers who got a chance to further develop their watercraft alongside some of the best surfers in the world.
From the filmmakers:
The generational Surfing short film HOME SCHOOL was born out of pandemic pulse of waves on the Gold Coast and having our best Surfers home in lock down. We assembled a team of local cameramen to combine their talent with clips of everyone from the Grom's to the World Champions to create a generational short film on the May Days of Covid-19. Lesson 1 comes from the lenses of up and coming talents like Luke Workman, Malachi Urquhart and Gold Coast staple names like Simon "Shagga" Saffigna and Lachlan McKinnon among many others featuring their clips of everyone from Icons like Mick Fanning, Joel Parkinson, Stephanie Gilmore, Josh Kerr and even Occy to the next generation of female superstars like Sierra Kerr and the flying Squirrel aka Quincy Symonds and everyone in between.
