Set in the remote village of Yakutat, Alaska, “With the Tide” follows the youth of the Tlingit tribe as they further explore their relationship to the ocean, themselves, and the expanse of isolated wilderness they call home. Over the span of four years, this story documents the exploration of how surfing can increase health, wellness and value for nature in a community that is constantly facing layers of adversity and the challenges of geographic isolation.

This story dives into the more vulnerable perspective of why we go outside and what freedom of movement means to the importance of healing trauma, and deepening a connection to nature for all communities.
