The short film “COUNTERCULTURE” is a portrait of several new approaches to the topic of surfing. Independent from the aesthetics of the surf industry, some European artists, journalists, shapers and independent brands gained a reputation for choosing their own path. This film shows the life and everyday work of these people and tries to explore the links between surfing and creativity.
