If he gets it right, he joins an elite group. If he gets it wrong, the consequences are terrifying.

Ben Larg was just 12 when he became Scotland’s Under-18 Surfing Champion. Ride The Wave charts the years that follow, as he makes the move to international competitions. Director Martyn Robertson captures Ben’s physical and emotional growth as he leaves home in Tiree to compete in Japan, Portugal and the treacherous waters around County Sligo.

Risking life and limb against nature in the raw is the basis of a warmhearted portrait of the surfing community and a family torn between protecting their teenage son and allowing him the freedom to pursue his dream.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with Martyn Robertson.
