Journalists Ed Leigh and Chris Moran decide to ditch their 9 to 5 desk jobs and go in search of waves, women and whatever else the road throws at them in this constructed reality documentary filmed in France, California and Mexico.
Commissioned by Channel Five, this light hearted travelogue narrated by Jason Fleming follows the exploits of two surfers as they embark on the ultimate road trip in search of the perfect wave.
Deciding to leave London in their trusted VW Camper van Betty, the pair visit the jewel of European surfing, south west France, where they get seriously involved in the heart of the surfing culture. Their trip takes an unsuspecting twist when they meet up with two old, wise surfing legends who tell them to head to Mexico via California. Living the life in Los Angeles, surfing famous waves, partying the nights away and road tripping through the Mexican desert in a beat up 1960’s Cadillac made for a stunning journey that inspired viewers to get out there and live life.
