Nicknamed Gauchos del Mar (sea cowboys), the Azulay brothers have surf in their DNA: their father pioneered the sport in 1960s Argentina, and their childhood summers were spent catching waves in Brazil.
In March 2010, the brothers packed up a truck and set off to surf the Pacific coast from Los Angeles to Chile, filming their experiences on a handycam and a GoPro. They travelled for 403 days across 13 countries, surfing new waves on isolated beaches along the way. The final cut, Gauchos del Mar (released in 2012), won a clutch of prizes at international film festivals.
