The Water Anthology is the first in a new series of lightning films called Playing Bigger. Each Episode celebrates a pirate, innovator or entrepreneur who is creating a new category, company and product. The Water Anthology series was shot at the Surf Ranch and explores category creation with some groundbreaking watermen and women (Kai Lenny, Hanli Prinsloo, Bianca Valenti and Kelly Slater). These four category designers are changing the way we move over the waves, how we move under the waves, who has the right to waves and how waves are created. Every one of them is playing bigger.
