A Short Film about surfer Noah Wegrich by Morgan Maassen
I first heard Noah Wegrich‘s name over a surf contest loudspeaker almost two decades ago, but it wasn’t until early last summer that we finally crossed paths. We both met bleary-eyed in the Jakarta airport, on the other side of the world from our small California homes, with a slew of flights, busses and boat rides ahead of us still. Several days later, we arrived at our small island outpost, and Noah proceeded to steal everyone’s breath with his insane surfing. Threading barrels, sharp turns, massive airs… it was wild, but also so mature, as his smooth style made everything so natural. Countless adventures later, I’m proud to share this film exploring his talent at home and abroad, a short flick whose filming process solidified Noah as one of my absolute favorite surfers.
