Flashback Friday: The Disappearance

October 01, 2021 1 min read


Take a trip back to one of our most creative, award-winning surf films, "The Disappearance". Winner of the 2012 Transworld SURF Imaginarium contest and featured in the X-Dance Film Festival, "The Disappearance" follows a group of four professional surfers and six filmmakers on what should have been the ultimate surf trip to the jungles of Indonesia—but it quickly became an excursion into heart-stopping terror.

As the crew discovers a perfect wave, strange images begin to appear on film. Are they sharks, alligators, or something else? Fear sets in and accusations fly. By night, unseen evil stirs beyond their campfire's light. By day, large animal prints are discovered nearby. Members of the crew begin to disappear one by one. As the end of their journey approaches, they realize that what they are filming is not an epic trip but their descent into unimaginable horror.

This is the footage found on the multiple hard drives and cameras recovered at the destroyed campsite. The disappearance of the eight adventurers is still under investigation. The two survivors were questioned repeatedly but continued to tell investigators strange stories of a sea creature.
