Race & Surfing: A Brief History With Selema Masekela

Published on May 27, 2022

Captions provided by CCTubes – Captioning the Internet! An animated documentary for Red Bull Surfing’s mini series ‘In Plain Sight’.

Surfing’s history – from Africa to Polynesia to the Americas – is one that’s rich, diverse, and incredibly nuanced. So much so, that we are only beginning to scratch the surface and understand it. Voiced by Selema Masekela, the film explores the varied roots of surfing’s origin and its subsequent cultural evolution into what we recognise today.

In partnership with 1 Planet One People, a collective activation that supports climate action, racial and social equality.
