About the Film:

Part of the Honolulu Surf Film Festival 2017

Directed by Patrick Trefz. USA. 2016. 58 min.
Surfers' Blood tells the universal story of true individuals that share deep bloodlines connected to the sea. Learn about the old world fishing history of the rugged Basque Coast via oar and surfboard shaper Patxi Oliden. In San Francisco, Swedish-American designer Thomas Meyerhoffer, who led the team that created Apple’s iMac forerunner eMate, is reshaping the surfboard with exploratory designs. Get a look at the exhibition Surf Craft: Design and the Culture of Board Riding, which was on view at San Diego’s Mingei Museum and the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, and was organized by independent curator and surfer Richard Kenvin. Finally, Trefz movingly tells the story of three-time Mavericks big wave champ Darryl “Flea” Virostko's struggle to overcome an almost fatal meth addiction and the bittersweet loss that came with it.
