Standing On Water is the story about how Casper Steinfath from Denmark became one of the best Stand Up Paddle surfers in the world. Casper grew up traveling the world with his mum, dad, and younger brother. He was always on a beach somewhere, playing by the waterside and tandem-surfing with his dad. However, as a child Casper developed a phobia of water, especially of his head being submerged. When the family settled down they chose a small fishing village in the north of Denmark called Klitmøller, not suspecting that this isolated community so close to the sea ironically held an even greater fear - parents refused to let their children play in the untamed power of the Nordic sea, in case the waters would claim them. Now at 21 years of age, Casper Steinfath has become the only Danish professional stand up paddle surfer and waterman, a 2-time International Surfing Association SUP world champion, traveling nine months of the year and surfing for a living.
