Barely in his teens, Cornwall’s Lukas Skinner is one of the world’s most promising young surfing talents. Known for big stylish aerial manoeuvres, Lukas’s skateboarding has done a lot to shape his approach to wave riding, but it was also nearly his undoing.

In 2020, at just 12-years-old Lukas had a hunger for competition, support of one of industry’s biggest brands and a huge career ahead of him, when a skateboarding accident placed all that in jeopardy.

Concrete Is Harder Than Water is a portrait of Lukas’ battle back to fitness and finding his feet on the water once again with the support of his family.

The Freedom It Gives Me

Removing the barriers to access so everyone can benefit from the transformative power of the ocean.

Somewhere north of Rodanthe, we rode past hundreds of perfect breaks on a hunch to reach a bank that would provide bigger and better waves. It did.
