Sliding Liberia is an award-winning film that crosses the boundaries between surf flick and social documentary. It follows the story – originally written for an article in The Surfer’s Path – of American Peace Corps worker Nicholai Lidow as he returns to the war-torn West African country where he’d made many friends on previous working visits. The surfing is great, but the stories of Liberians working towards a peaceful future are even more inspiring.
