About the project

By The Seaside is about the life of Alin, a young surfer girl born in Indonesia. She lives on a remote island in the Indian Ocean that is surrounded by some of the world’s best waves, an abundance of coconuts and fresh fish, and a great atmosphere. This short film showcases Alin’s journey in surfing, from her early days exploring the sport to becoming a professional who knows how to navigate the waves with ease.
