Lost Track Atlantic is a four-part series that takes you on the journey of a lifetime, from the far north Atlantic to the tropical, equatorial coast of West Africa. Follow best friends, surfer Torren Martyn and filmmaker Ishka Folkwell in a search for waves and life long memories, as they journey down the Atlantic coastline passing through some of the most culturally diverse regions on the planet.
In Episode 1, Torren and Ishka start their journey in Northern Europe, fitting out their van then hitting the road, exploring Ireland and Scotland, scoring some incredible waves. In Episode 2, the boys make a huge call to leave Scotland, skip the European coast and drive around 3,000 miles through the continent to cross the Strait of Gibraltar and meet a swell that'd been forecasted to hit the North African coast. In Episode 3 Torren and Ishka savour every minute of life in northwest Africa, exploring some of the best right-hand points they have ever experienced and forming new friendships through a universal love of the ocean. As they venture further south into the depths of a disputed territory, sand storms, relentless winds and endless desert give time for reflection on the journey so far.
Ishka is currently working on the final episode of the four-part needessentials Lost Track Atlantic feature series - it'll be released during September.
These four feature length episodes remind us that although life has its highs and lows, we can always find contentment in a deep connection with nature, community and the ocean.
