Ride the Wave is an award winning Scottish feature documentary following young surfer Ben on his quest to become a big wave surfer.

14-year-old Scottish surfer Ben Larg wants to conquer one of the most dangerous cold water waves in the world at Mullaghmore, Ireland. If he succeeds, he will become the youngest surfer ever to do so. Danger, opportunity, and parental dilemma collide propelling Ben and his family towards an unknown destiny.

Join Director Martyn Robertson for a Q&A following the screening at 4pm.

What a terrific film Ride the Wave is. It’s a story about parents and kids and danger and dreams. It’s incredibly visual, very cinematic. It’s a really impressive piece of cinema.

Ride The Wave is a breath of fresh air. Tense, moving, and raw, it is a celebration of talent, resilience, and some top-class parenting.


Robertson’s skill lies in maintaining a warm human touch throughout.


Robertson’s film is excellent at teasing out Ben’s date with destiny – the desire to prove himself, the need to evolve as a surfer, his deep-seated fascination with giant waves.
