Episode Details

Synopsis The poorest country in the Americas with a history shaped by vodou and political and environmental disasters, Sam dives into Haitis waves and culture revealing an often misunderstood nation. Sam travels north through markets and fruit vendors to Cap Haitien, where he learns about the Haitian revolution and surfs the best wave on the island, Ginsu, named after an American brand of cutlery because the coral reef is so sharp. From here, Sam travels through the centre of Haiti, into the highlands, witnessing graffiti art, before descending into Jacmel, hotbed of Haitian dance and papier-mch puppets. The whole town is preparing for carnival. Sam joins the parade, but his favourite carnival procession is in the Caribbean sea, surfing with Chachou, who teaches Sam about the environmental challenges at his local beach, a possible hotspot for tourists in the future.
