Frio Surf

Produit par Sequence Films

Frio, a crowd-funded Kickstarter documentary, is a heartwarming film about two up and coming Nicaraguan surfers, Kevin Cortez and Jackson Obando. The two are longtime childhood friends and simultaneously podium rivals who embark on a surf trip that is one of the first of its kind; from tropical to icy waters. However, suiting up head-to-toe in a full body wetsuit to brave the frigid waters of British Columbia, Canada is not the only ‘first’ these young prodigies are destined to confront. From the moment they say goodbye to their families and step on to the plane they begin to learn the meaning of the term ‘culture shock’. The documentary is both endearing and at times even comical, as the film crew does it’s best to capture their childlike curiosity as well as every life changing moment, from the good to the bad.
