Our Judges say:

Inspired... A great, no-nonsense character focusing on ability rather than disability, and the sea.

Claire Carter Writer, Film Officer for Kendal Mountain Festival, 'Creative Consultant'.

Not like anything else in the line up. A must-see.

Elise Wicker

He has one leg, but several prosthetic legs. He surfs, he runs, and he changed his name to PegLeg.

Anna Paxton

This man is obsessed you can see why. Cool film 💪

Ed Birch Director of Salt-Street productions

Guy with wooden leg becomes really good surfer and adopts alternative lifestyle. Chuffing hilarious and a really good character portrait. This guys a bad ass.
