Kerala is the ultimate getaway destination. With its flawless waves and untouched beauty, the southern province of India attracts surfers from all around the world. For the local population, foreign surfers have become a new curiosity. While surfers and fishermen have learned to coexist and share the beaches, a group of foreign surfers has decided to give back to the community by founding the Sunday Surf Club, where they teach locals how to swim, surf and tame the ocean.

Gaza, Palestinian Territories
When we think of Gaza, we tend to associate it with death, destruction, misery, rockets and Hamas. The overall realities of Gaza are indeed rather grim: this tiny coastal strip has grown into an open-air prison consisting of around 1.5 million Palestinians, most of whom are refugees. They have zero control over their borders and airspace, and have very limited access to the Mediterranean Sea which so prominently characterizes this tiny strip of Palestine. The siege, which negatively aﬀects all freedom of movement of persons and goods to and from the Gaza Strip, has exacerbated the already dire economic situation as well as severely limited any cultural or academic development. Restrictions of many aspects of social and cultural life imposed by the current Hamas government and the large-scale dependency of most of the population on international aid, leaves Palestinians in Gaza feeling suﬀocated and helpless.
Amid all this despair, however, there are those who keep ﬁnding powerful expressions of their lust for life, their spirit and their strength.
Through hip-hop, break-dancing, parkour, surﬁng and other creative endeavors, they manifest their thirst for freedom and use these activities as a form of resistance. In the absence of adequate equipment or facilities and in the face of growing conservatism in their society, they improvise. Underneath the more known images of violence and despair, these people provide a glimpse of the vibrant sparks of freedom in Gaza.
