SURFING AND SHARKS TRAILER from SURFINGANDSHARKS on Vimeo.

In South Africa, between Durban and Jeffreys Bay, lies approx 1000km of untamed oceanic paradise in the middle is the Wild Coast. For local surfers Lungani Memani, Andrew Lange and Avuyile Ndamase, it's their home. Every year in June the ocean swells to it's peak, hosting the country's largest surf conditions, becomes host to the sardine run, and brings together a huge marine bio-diversity including many species of sharks.

This documentary goes up close with pro surfers Lungani, Andrew and Avuyile, their family's traditions and tribulations alongside a hand-selected group of the best shark experts from the region to uncover the real secrets and stories that surround the shark stigma that exists in South Africa.
