Yesterday we escaped the heat to watch the newly release movie Drift. Drift is set in the 1970s and tells the story of two brothers, as they grow up in a surf region, building a surfboard business. The movie was filmed in just 32 days down in Margaret River, Western Australia, and it really shows the beauty of the region. The film contains some really fantastic surf scenes with waves up to 20 foot (about 6 metres). Pretty cool that 70 percent of the surf scenes are performed by the actors themselves. After watching this movie I just wanted to fly back to WA again.
The surf contest looks a little bit different compare to when I was there last time.
