This film is part of the documentary series "Kamchatka: Extraordinary Stories at the Edge of the Earth." Kamchatka and the Kuril Islands are places at the edge of the world, where the first rays of the sun are greeted, where there are countless volcanoes and the boundless ocean. Explorers, seekers, and pioneers have always been drawn here. At the center of the story are the founders of the Kamchatka surf movement: athlete Anton Morozov and director Mikhail Moroz, who embark on an extraordinary journey to conquer previously unseen waves and discover the nature of Kamchatka in its pristine form. It's the biography not of just one person, but of many destinies, reflecting the state of that time. It's about how surfing and snowboarding surged across the Russian Far East and spread throughout Russia.
