Surf filmmaking comes in all shapes and sizes nowadays. Some tell stories while the waves are the backrop to a surfer’s journey. Some go the artistic route. And some go so far down the artistic path that things get a little…awkward. But one thing that can’t really go out of style is just a few minutes of really great waves with good surfers riding them. Luís Perloiro and Tomás Fernandes are two of Portugal’s young up-and-comers doing just that in White Flag Productions’ Inception. Here, they are cruising through Africa exploring the plethora of perfect point breaks the place has to offer.
Great waves. Good surfing. Fade to black. Because the truth is as much as we want really great storytelling and all that business, nothing wets the whistle quite like a bit of good old-fashioned wave porn.
