London Surf / Film Festival


An inspiring and insightful exploration of how a small corner of coastal California has produced some of the world’s most talented surfers and innovators. The groomed lines that wrap around the cobblestone point at Rincon have provided the proving ground for many of surfing’s radical thinkers – from George Greenough, Rennie Yater, Bob McTavish and Nat Young to Wayne Lynch, Jon Pyzel, Al Merrick, Ryan Lovelace and more.

Combining incredible archive footage and thoughtful interviews this award winning documentary chronicles the craftsmanship, work ethic, renegades and traditions that go beyond time spent in the sea, to define the evolving ethos of generations who forge an oceanic life around the notion of craft, heritage and place.
