Standing On Water is a story of overcoming your fears and following your passion. It's the journey of how Casper Steinfath despite his fear of water became one of the best stand up paddle surfers in the world as the only person from Denmark. It's a story of how far passion can take you in life, even if you grow up in a small and isolated fishing village in the middle of nowhere. Strong family bonds, brotherhood, and the birth of a Danish surf community in what today is known as “Cold Hawaii” set the stage in this meditative portrait of a life lived by and for the ever-changing ocean.
