About the Film:
Directors: Taylor Steele and Nathan Meyers
USA, 2011, 79 mins.
In this collaborative project, top pro surfers chose their own cinematographers and editors, then surfed, filmed, and edited their own segments. Each segment was then woven together into one Innersection. The movie is the climax of each Innersection year, including four rounds of competition, 25 qualifying surfers, and interviews and behind-the-scenes stories. This project is considered the next evolution in defining the high-performance surf film. Look for interviews with Innersection winner Matt Meola, Nate Tyler, Peter Devries, Ry Craike, Clay Marzo, Brent Dorrington, Mikala Jones, Cory Lopez, Pat Gudauskas, Marco Giorgi, Kelly Slater, Nat Young, Luke Lederman and more.
