SYNOPSIS

Happiness is the open ocean for 19-year-old surfer girl Hinako—until her coastal home catches on fire. To her rescue comes 21-year-old firefighter Minato, who has his own history with the sea. Sparks fly between them, but a coming storm will test if Hinako can navigate the currents of life as well as she rides the waves of the ocean.

Ride Your Wave is many things: a playful rom-com, a meditation on love and loss, and an excellent gateway to the works of cult animator Masaaki Yuasa. Here, he finds fantasy in the everyday, putting a light surrealist touch on his gentlest story yet. Breaking waves and broken hearts are animated with his trademark fluidity, in ways that stretch both the laws of physics and the imagination
