This Too Is Liberia is feature length documentary. Through the eyes of a local surfer, Melvin S. Kabakole Jr. and his friend, Philip Banini Jr., we are transported to Monrovia and Robertsport, Liberia.

We document Melvin and his colleagues as they try to introduce the only surf therapy program in West Africa to his community. Melvin seeks to teach the community around him about the healing benefits of surfing. However, he could never have imagined that the journey would be for his revelation.
