In “Against Nature” Owen Murphy and Rowan Minjon talk about their personal form of escapism through surfing. Owen and Rowan are captivated with surfing. “I’ve tried living without it and I always come back”. Not only a hobby, surfing is a form of mediation to these two men. This short documentary shows that having a hobby, a place to escape to and time for yourself truly benefits your body and mind to push yourself and never give in. “You’re never against the wave, you’re against yourself.
We filmed this video in Bundoran, co. Donegal where the two surfers regularly surf with the Bundoran Surf Company. Thanks to Owen and Rowan for taking part in our video and for to those who helped us make it.
