Synopsis

At the start of this story Ben Larg is 12 years old and already the under-18 surfing champion in Scotland. He lives on the remote isle of Tiree with his parents but travels to compete in surfing contests around the world, meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. While Ben’s parents are supportive of his pursuits, he sometimes clashes with his dad who becomes frustrated if Ben isn’t trying his hardest. Instead of pursuing competitions, Ben decides that what he really wants to do is to ride a particularly challenging – and dangerous – wave in Ireland, and so dedicates his training towards achieving that goal over the next three years. With themes around anti-bullying, family, and finding what you love to do in life, ‘Ride the Wave’ is an impactful and relatable documentary for young people.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
