There's some of Adin Masencamp's dream in all of us.

The South African has been on the competitive grind for years, chasing the QS with hopes of qualitfying for the Championship Tour. His new film, 'Ascension' gives a behind-the-scenes look into his competitive journey and features some of the best waves he's ever had, right in his own backyard.

A note on the film from Adin:

"After COVID hit it’s really given me time to step away from the competitive mindset I’ve been set on the last few years, being able to score some of the best waves I’ve ever had right in my backyard. I head off to compete again on the WSL Challenger Series in September, hoping this will be the year I achieve greatness on the next chapter of my journey.

I’m excited to release my film ASCENSION, a short film that I have been working on with filmmaker Michael Veltman. The film tells the story of the grind being a South African professional surfer trying to qualify for the WSL Championship Tour. It’s been a crazy journey since I was a young competitive grom, as my family gave up so much to get me where I am today and I really want to dedicate this to them."
