Synopsis: On January 25, 2012, Ricky Whitlock paddled out at the famed Banzai Pipeline on Oahu's North Shore before dawn. His second wave broke on top of him and slamming him into the sharp, shallow, coral reef, breaking two vertebra in his back. Some doctors said he would never surf again. His determination and focus led him to surfing 40' just seven months after his accident.

Bending Colours tells the compelling story of Jordy Smith, one of surfing's most interesting characters. Following his yearlong journey from teenage prodigy to the superhighway of performance surfing, the film gains unprecedented access to Smith's personal and professional life that is as dazzling as the ocean in which he surfs. Through the use of state of the art camera equipment and original direction, Bending Colours blends action with art house aesthetic. The film offers birds eye views of Cape Town's shoreline, put the viewer board side of mind boggling surfing maneuvers and shows the beauty and rigors of a life lived by some of the best breaks in the world. Bending Colours is the portrayal of a surfer who knows no boundaries and is a man who is leading surfing's new vanguard.
