Surfing has ceased a long time ago to be considered a niche sport. As the mainstream industry discovers its potential for selling clothes, trips and a whole set of ‘lifestyle’ products, there are those who appreciate it for what it is in its purest form – a direct connection to mother nature.
We accompany Big Wave surfer Alex Botelho and some of his friends to meet surfers who balance their love for the ocean and nature with a professional career in the sport. Mar is a tale of discovery, triumph and (almost) tragedy, but above all it is a life affirming pledge to positive vibes in and out of the line-up.
Get ready to soak up a new conception of the world of surf as Alex Botelho unveils concepts unknown for the mainstream audience, available on Nautical Channel.
