Catch it

Watch Leas documentary Catch it. Its about finding simplicity and an appealing balance between nature and humanity in Lofoten Islands. Fishing, climbing and surfing... Lea reminds us that living simply is living fully.

"This award winning film profiles surfer Léa Brassy, who grew up in northern France. By the time she was 17, she moved to southern France for the warm water surf. Accustomed to a life on the road, her nomadic lifestyle takes a pause at the Unstad break in the Lofoten Islands in Northern Norway. Trading in her bikini for a thick wetsuit, she connects with the surrounding mountains, Arctic surf, and simple living. Whether it’s paddling hard for a wave, or chasing after a passion - Léa reminds us that if the timing is right, we have to Catch It."
