About the Film:

Part of the Honolulu Surf Film Festival 2017

Directed by Jason Baffa. USA. 2003. 70 min.
Singlefin: yellow is director Jason Baffa's (One California Day, Bella Vita) first independent film. The cult classic was shot on 16mm film and brought a spin to the surf-film genre by using a surf board as the main character. South Bay shaper and surfer Tyler Hatzikian shapes a yellow, single-fin longboard that is inspired by the boards of the late 1960s and sends it on a round-the-world tour with an eclectic crew of surfers (Devon Howard, Beau Young, David Kinoshita, Daize Shayne, Bonga Perkins) who each ride it, then pass it on, until it makes its way back to Tyler in Los Angeles.
