A Brave Life – Fabian Muhmenthaler

This is a short film about Fabian Muhmenthaler and his love for the ocean, his sport and the people around him.

“What is in your life’s blueprint?” In the struggle for freedom, we have to keep moving. If you can’t fly, run. If you can’t run, walk. If you can’t walk, crawl. But by all means, keep moving.




Fabian wants to show his gratitude to his sponsors Wet Watersports, Duotone Kiteboarding, Ion, Vitaminwell and Hurricane Hotel. And to his good friends and family.

Directed, filmed and created by Lidewij Hartog.
