Forget the jet skis, the highly planned trips, the satellite imaging, or those expensive surfsuits. In 1971 all people had were surfboards and some maps. It was an age filled with pure romanticism around the surf community. Firm believers of these principles, a group of australians took the decision to surf the coasts of north Australia, Hawaii and Bali having only by company the old volkswagen and a video camera.
Far from living for themselves, the surfers connected with the local communities and embodied an attitude of liberty and peace towards nature and other surfers.You get the idea: hippie culture was in its heyday and more than any other, this film reflects in every sense that era. A must-watch for every surfer.
