Guinness - Surfers - (1999) :60 (UK)

A group of surfers conquers the waves. They wait that's what he does. Tik follow tok follow tik follow tok. Ahab says, 'I don't care who you are, here's to your dream.' Inspired by Walter Crane's 1893 painting "Neptune's Horses" the waves turn into white horses. One by one, each surfer crashes out, but one who rides the wave to shore. Everyone celebrates.
