“That’s Surf West” is a documentary short film about the wild west of Australia. In 2014 the Italian wave rider Federico Infantino from Bordighera and his girlfriend Elisa Mariani moved to Western Australia (Margaret River) and started to film for their own movie project That’s Surf West. The Italian, who is a pizzaiolo (pizza chef) in Western Australia, is very happy about his decision to leave Italy and live in WA. For Federico it was a complete life change.
The film crew travelled for more than 2 years shooting at the best spots in Western Australia and captured great action and landscape in Gnaraloo, Margaret River, Geraldton or Esperance. That’s Surf West not only covers windsurfing, it also shows surfing from the WSL event in Margaret River.
