In this short documentary by Sebastien Gilbert, we are given a glimpse of the island's natural beauty, where the pristine waters and the tranquil scenery serve as the perfect backdrop for a good surf. The film also features the locals who helped shape the surfing scene, specifically in famous surf spot "Cloud 9".
