„Beyond - An African Surf Documentary” is not a classic sports documentary about pro athletes who already made their way, nor does the movie indulge in clichees of Africa. Instead the film dares to take an alternative look at the „forgotten continent“ and portraits pioneers, visionaries and the dawn of a new valid perception of this stretch of land: a place with the potential to become a new hotspot for surfing.

12 stories show a West Africa that is changing, little by little. In these episodic stories the movie portraits the dawn of individualism, lifestyle sports and personal fullfillment. These changes might produces some friction in the lifes of the protagonists, but their determination and dedication proves that there is always a way to be found.
