The Inertia

What defines the greatness of a man? Is it just the results? Or the commitment to the pursuit of his dreams? Why are some people afraid of the ocean while others can’t live without dropping into 40-foot waves?

This short documentary shares the story of João de Macedo, an underdog big wave surfer who is trying to compete on Big Wave World Tour without a major sponsor, filmed over the last six months in some of the most iconic big wave surf spots around the world.

The film is a milestone within a bigger project over the next two years. We are working on a full feature documentary about João, about big wave surfing, and about human nature.


Only the best. We promise.
