John Lynch Surf Documentary “Abroad”

by | Jun 8, 2012 | Video

Filmmaker John Lynch, known for capturing powerful surf footage around the globe, digs deeper in this film to explore how standard tourism can transcend into life-altering experiences. Shot single-handedly by Lynch over the course of a several week stint in Indonesia, the film chronicles the evolution of his journey.

Lynch’s travel for the film was funded in equal part by PENTAX and Waterways Travel. On the surface, this was a routine expedition to test out a new camera and ride beautiful waves. However, Lynch felt something more complex was occurring. He reflects, “I left the States with a general question lingering in my mind: When does the tourist become a traveler?”
