Half Life - from the makers of the award winning North Devon surf history. During 2004, 2005 and 2006, Mark Brindle has been filming the story of Tim, Matt and Dave, three 40-something buddies, partly around their homes in Devon and Cornwall but mostly in the cold and windy surf spots of far North Scotland. With a mix of archive footage from 1993, 1994 and 1998 and new surfing footage and interviews, the story of their surf trips to Scotland is told - the surfing, the injuries, the locations and the fun! Surfing in the shadow of the nuclear reprocessing plant at Sandside (Dounreay) - would you go in the water if you knew the facts? Check it out and make up your own mind... includes interviews with Andy Cummins from Surfers Against Sewage
