WATCH: Torren Martyn’s New Flick Is a Stress-Free Joy Ride

By on

Everyone and their dog loves Torren Martyn. Why? Maybe it’s that affinity for cruising across a blank canvas on some crazy-looking chunk of foam that just sings to us. Anyway, the weird board wizard has just dropped a delightfully fresh flick called Thank You Mother and you can now watch it right here. (Well, above, but you know what we mean.)

Made four years ago and only available to a small audience until now, the feature film is now available for you all to feast your eyes on, and we'd suggest you put your feet up and crack open a cold one for this beauty.

Produced by needessentials, at heart, Thank You Mother is a cinematic journey of surfing, simplicity and appreciation. It excels in creating and sustaining a tranquil atmosphere through beautiful visions and super stylish surfing courtesy of Torren. The film also features an original soundtrack by Nick Bampton, giving the whole flick a certain joie de vivre.

That’s the beauty of the ocean, it brings you right back into the present when you’re riding a wave.

It began as a story about the act of creating a surfboard and the art of riding one, exploring the connection between surfer Torren Martyn and his friend, mentor and surfboard shaper Simon Jones of Morning of the Earth Surfboards. This naturally led to the doorstep of another friend and mentor, Albert Falzon (who is also the film's narrator) and the film became more about connection, creativity and friendship, about surfing, being happy, and living simply. Albert's contentment with life resonates wholly throughout its 42 minute run time.
