RIDE THE WAVE

A young surfer hailing from an unlikely destination strives to make it big in RIDE THE WAVE. 14-year-old Ben Larg has made a name for himself as a Scottish surfing champion. Born and raised in Tiree, an island in the Scottish Hebrides with a population of only around 650, Ben started surfing at a young age, encouraged by his surf-loving dad and adventurous family.

Surfing competitively from the age of 11, Ben has traveled around the world and surfed with some of the best in his age group. But Ben has bigger dreams, more specifically big wave dreams. RIDE THE WAVE follows Ben and his family as he trains to ride one of the biggest and most dangerous cold water waves in the world at Mullaghmore in Ireland. With this unforgiving wave, if he gets it right, he joins an elite group. If he gets it wrong, the consequences are terrifying. Danger, opportunity, and parental dilemma collide propelling Ben and his family towards an unknown destiny.
