UHD 4k broadcaster Insight TV is launching its “Surfing September” month, focusing on the fashion, lifestyle and language of surf culture with the launch of six original surfing shows, including the previously announced Chasing Monsters.

Headlining the new slate is Lost In, which consists of four standalone episodes that takes viewers to distant islands as some of the world’s best surfers uncover new surfing spots in unlikely areas in Indonesia, Tasmania, Fiji and Java.

Day of Days on Thundercloud Reef, meanwhile, spotlights one of the world’s most spectacular waves in Fiji called Cloudbreak, from its ancient heritage to the swell that rocked the Volcom Fiji Pro, while Surf Girls (pictured) follows the story of three German girls who spend their time skateboarding and surfing in Cape Town, South Africa, while promoting a photo shoot for a swimwear brand.

Maverick Moments from Go Big Project follows several big wave surfers as they travel across Hawaii’s North Shore to Portugal’s North Canyon in an attempt to ride swells that surpass 100 feet.

Rounding out Insight TV’s roster of surf shows is Lift Offan adventure reality series following Jokke Sommer, one of the world’s best wingsuit pilots, and Niccolo Porcella, a world-class big wave surfer, as they attempt to switch sports. They navigate a path of friendship, love and danger, as they attempt to achieve their dreams. Their mission takes them to Hawaii, Dubai, France, Italy, Switzerland and Norway.
