In June 2018, professional surfers Damien Castera and Arthur Bourbon flew to Liberia, one of the poorest countries in the world. For their film "Water Get No Ennemy", they met the first generation of surfers in the country. Among them, former child soldiers who, 15 years after the end of the civil war, want to rebuild themselves through surfing.
