Splinters documents the impact of surfing’s competitive side in Papua New Guinea

Splinters Trailer

In the remote seaside village of Vanimo in Papua New Guinea, there are hardly any jobs-but there are infinite prime waves. Twenty years after the first board was introduced on the island, surfing has become a way of life.

I wasn’t expecting to see what I saw in this trailer. It starts off portraying the natural, native spirit of surfing in a remote coastal culture. It looks like the anti-surf movie, a story grounded in the roots of wave riding. Then it turns. And it turns hard. “Splinters” looks to be a true documentary, not a surf film intoxicated by tube shots and sponsored yacht trips to remote breaks. As the title implies, this is a story about what happens when the norms of an exotic, insular island culture clash with the harsh, jagged edge of commercial surfing.
