Powers of Three
The film begins with a great quote by Vincent Van Gogh: “The fisherman know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found sufficient reason for remaining ashore.” In the violent waters off the west coast of Ireland three surfers embrace grey skies and freezing waters to ride waves. Why? What drives them? Why do these three friends swim in life threatening conditions in pursuit of a wave? When you have a spare few minutes go to www.relentlessenergy.com, stick some headphones on and press play. With stunning photography matched to a beautifully emotive soundtrack, Powers Of Three not only shows the wild coastline of Ireland to be one of the most beautiful places on earth, but it also goes some way to explaining why, for some people, their passion has become their lifestyle, and the rewards that this brings far outweigh the risks.
