BIG WATA is a positive story about the first and only surf club in Sierra Leone. Wanting to break free from the restrictions of a traditional community the younger members of a West African fishing community discover surfing as their identity and purpose in life.

Embarking on a journey the members explore the opportunities surfing could offer their community. Shot during the Ebola outbreak BIG WATA offers a fresh perspective on West Africa showing how the diversity and resilience of this community enables them to dream big and bring light in an otherwise dark time.
