Divided by Politics, United by Surf…

God Went Surfing With The Devil is the first film by american director Alexander Klein. This higlhy acclaimed documentary shows the efforts of The Gaza Surf Club and The Surfing 4 Peace Foundation to promote peace through their beloved sport. Surfing is usually associated with freedom and nature but it takes a very different meaning in the reality of these boys, who live in the military sealed zone of the Gaza Strip. Watch the trailer!

“Along the way, Israelis, Arab-Israelis, and Palestinians who are affected by the violence, speak candidly, charting their daily struggle to supersede the conflict through the pure joy of surfing.”

Following the movie 1980 Editions released the book Surfin’ Gaza that documents the state of the surf community in the region through beautiful images of the surfers and Gaza’s surroundings.
