About the Film:

Director: David Bradbury
Australia, USA, 2010, 91 mins. 

Back by popular demand, this documentary begins in the giant waves of the 1967 Duke Kahanamoku Invitational Surfing Championship at Sunset Beach, where Australia’s Bob McTavish unleashed the first shortboard that would forever change the history of surfing. The Californians, however, have always claimed this breakthrough design as their own. Exploring both sides of the conflict this film reveals the celebrated hangouts and shaping rooms of those now famous board makers.

Bob McTavish will be present to introduce the film on July 21 at 7:30pm
