Leah Dawson used her 28th birthday as an excuse to spend the summer in Indo
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 13 April, 2015 - North Shore, Oahu - Leah Dawson is a surfer based on the North Shore of Oahu. Utilizing her love for the ocean, she tells story through film, writing, and music.
Julune is a visual depiction of Leah's dream coming true, with cinematography featuring vast landscapes of both the Na Pali Coast of Kauai, the dolphins in the sea, and the barrel country of the Mentawai Islands.
Leah has been looking forward to surfing the Mentawai's since she was a young girl, knowing she needed to wait until she was ready, (a good enough surfer to get in and out of barrels) to make the trip. For her 28th birthday, Leah found herself on a boat trip, and deep in some of the longest barrels of her life.
The film features a song Leah wrote on an ukulele while in Indonesia called "Feel Your Heartbeat". She later recorded and produced the song with Kellen Malloy.
