Beyond The Break

Beyond The Break

A TELUS Original

Beyond the Break is a documentary that shares the story of Samson Danniels. He’s a multi-sport athlete in three para-skiing disciplines along with biking, snowmobiling and paragliding. We follow Samson as he pursues his latest athletic obsession: surfing. 

With Sam’s high-level paralysis (T4, from the chest down), existing adaptive surfboards don’t give him the core support he needs. So, he is learning to make his own. 

As he designs and builds himself a customized adaptive surfboard to tackle the elusive and unforgiving waves of the Pacific Northwest, we explore Sam’s continuing story of overcoming obstacles and physical challenges with passion, creativity, and ingenuity.
