New Series: Inside Surfing Showcases Surf Stories, Places, & People
Inside Surfing: Show premise
Surfing: The act of riding a wave while standing on a board. But is it a sport, an art form, a lifestyle? Some would say, “All three!” Anyone who has had the pleasure of gliding across the water on a surfboard will agree: it’s one of the most extraordinary sensations on Earth.
INSIDE SURFING tells the stories, introduces the people & explores the places that make surfing so amazing, so inspiring, & so hard to define.
INSIDE SURFING sources footage from productions by legendary filmmakers, industry stalwarts & up-and-coming stars of surf cinematography.
Episodes are built around topical segments that give viewers a behind the scenes look at the surfers, trips, spots, boards, locations, films, equipment & moments in time that have defined surfing from its birth until the modern day.
The show strikes the difficult balance of respecting surfing’s attractive, irreverent & often rebellious image while presenting the culture in a way that’s entertaining for an international audience of core participants, newcomers & the general public.
The popularity & cultural influence of surfing & the lifestyle it conveys have become the driving force behind an entire boardsports industry that currently generates annual revenues of over 20 billion USD. Our comprehensive broadcast & social media strategy will reach millions of the world’s 83 million active surfers. High visibility events like the Olympics, social media savvy athletes, as well as the increasing quantity & quality of surf parks, continue to grow surfing’s
popularity & reach.
