ICH bin ICH – Gui und sein Wellenspielplatz

Ute Hilgefort

Films for Kids and Young Adults

Gui lives on the Algarve coast of Portugal, where the sea, surf and sandy beaches are the best playground ever. The six-year-old loves football, capoeira, but most of all surfing. With a former world champion body surfer as a mother, he and his brother have grown up with the sport. We find out from Gui how surfing works and what you have to watch out for in the cold, powerful waves. And we learn that there’s no better feeling than racing towards the beach on a surfboard on a giant wave.
