After five successful episodes, we embarked on making a full-length feature film – “Priboi”. A film about conquering waves, riding with the best local surfers, and searching out the most inaccessible spots. Directed by Konstantin Kokorev, – this film tells the story of how surf culture was born and developed in Russia – with never-before high-quality filming and editing.
