Episode Details

Synopsis Sam pulls out a map of Jamaica and has an almost magnetic pull to head to the south and east of the island, where he hopes the Caribbean will be delivering good clean swell. In typical off-the-beaten track style, Sam bypasses Bull Bay, the modern home of Jamaican surfing, and arrives at Boston Beach, the traditional heart of Jamaican surfing. The charismatic oldest local, and longtime lifeguard, explains how surfing started on the island, and how the current scene is evolving. Sam meets a plethora of cool locals, and is welcomed into the scene. Sam is captivated by the lyricism of the Jamaican patois, and is on a mission to showcase different facets of Caribbean culture. The hot skills exhibited by the local womens football team lead to the unforgettable experience of a dancehall sound system clash, the bass deep enough to rattle your bones.
