Description

Locked between Egypt and Israel with slim opportunities for escape, a new generation of Gaza?s youth are drawn to the beaches. Sick of political gridlock, armed with makeshift surfboards, they find personal freedom and new ambitions in the waves of the Mediterranean. As they dream of ever-gnarlier waves and professional surfing contracts, these Palestinian athletes must confront bureaucratic and cultural realities that keep them beached.
