About the Film

SKAGERRAK is a documentary film from 2018. It follows the SUP athlete Casper Steinfath’s preparation and mental development in his attempt to become the first in the world to paddle from Denmark to Norway. During the winter of 2017, Casper tried to cross the Skagerrak for the first time. But only 12 km from the coast, his dream sank. One year later, Casper tried to cross the Skagerrak again. The second time it succeeds. SKAGERRAK is an insight into the journey Casper goes through in the year between the two trials. A journey that turns out to be about more than coming from A to B, where fraternity and friendship will play a vital role in getting a project of this size to succeed. SKAGERRAK is an inspiring story that is about the dreams and hopes that live inside us all. A movie about the courage to head out towards the horizon.

About the Film

Standing on Water is a documentary film from 2016. It is a story of overcoming your fears and following your passion. It's the journey of how Casper Steinfath despite his fear of water became one of the best stand up paddle surfers in the world as the only person from Denmark. It's a story of how far passion can take you in life, even if you grow up in a small and isolated fishing village in the middle of nowhere.


Strong family bonds, brotherhood, and the birth of a Danish surf community in what today is known as Cold Hawaii set the stage in this meditative portrait of a life lived by and for the ever-changing ocean. 


Follow Casper's journey from taking the first steps in his childhood, through youth and adulthood on to a professional career in surfing. Standing On Water - the tides that shape a life.
