The Life of Ply

This short film by Mark Kermode was awarded ‘Most Inspirational Film’ at Cornwall Film Festival’s Board Shorts event. It is a short tale of enduring stoke catalyzed by prone surfing on a ply board. Dorothy “Dot” explains her joy of discovering the ocean for the first time and sliding up onto the beach on her wooden bellyboard. And that if you don’t surf, you probably won’t understand. However, Peter, who does not surf, enjoys and appreciates her stoke after a day’s surf. His comparison of surfing a wave to making a perfect shot in golf is perfect. Is that why many surfers enjoy golfing so much? Just that little taste of perfection?

Well, as we all know, stoke is infectious. Spread yours!
