Riding the Wave is a new documentary project by BAFTA New Talent Winning Producer/ Director Martyn Robertson.


Riding the Wave follows 12-year-old Scottish surfer Ben, his enthusiastic father Marti, and the rest of their family, as they go on a voyage of discovery from running a surf school from a beach shack on a rural island in the Scottish Hebrides, to competing in different surfing cultures and competitions around the world.

Director Martyn Robertson started following Ben in 2016 and the film will look at the demands placed on this cold water surfer from a remote part of the UK, the test on the relationship between Ben and his father, and the sacrifices that are made by the whole family.
