A giant ship passes daily by a small harbor near Berlin, mistakenly forming what some would call a perfect wave. This unusual German point break is sadly endangered, as the ship that’s been producing the wave for over a decade is getting old, and will soon be replaced. With no known documentation of this wave being surfed, local Berliner Ira Mowen (originally from Santa Cruz, California), set out on a seemingly simple task to catch one single wave, yet after eight grueling months, and nearly 150 failed attempts, the fear of never catching this rare wave began to haunt him day and night. Surf Berlin: The Quest for the Last German Wave is the feature length documentary film that follows Ira’s endless journey through the depths of German winter to be the first to record a ride on this fleeting man-made before it is gone forever. This here blog began as a way for Ira to allow the online world to follow his story as it was happening — Now it serves as a small introduction to the story, that will be told through the film. Expect to see the film in theaters, followed by an online release, in 2015.
