Part surf film and part conservation film, Never Town explores Australia’s remote southern coastlines—and what surfers are willing to do to keep them wild. From the dusty edges of South Australia to the deep forests of Victoria and Tasmania, it features the surfing of Dave Rastovich, Dan Ross, Belinda Baggs and more, set along conversations with coastal activists fighting against oil drilling and fish farms in their home waters. With coastlines around the world under pressure like never before, it’s a rallying cry for surfers and local communities to stand together in defense of the places they love.
