Andy Irons: Kissed By God
The Andy Irons Story is a documentary film that focuses on the true, untold story of one of the world’s most prolific surfers. The intent of the film is to show the unfiltered life of Andy Irons, one that was filled with energy, passion, success, and challenges. Challenges that pushed Andy to the brink and were both the best parts of Andy and the hardest to handle. The filmmakers, Steve and Todd Jones, wanted to create a film that captured the true essence of Andy Irons - his family, his friends, and those who later realized a friendship that at times was hard to understand. The film features in-depth interviews with Andy’s brother Bruce Irons, his wife Lyndie Irons, Joel Parkinson, Nathan Fletcher, Sunny Garcia, and Kelly Slater. Andy’s friends, family, and competitors share their stories of intimacy and fire with Andy Irons throughout the film. The unabashedly honest testimonials compel the story and reveal the very real side of Andy. This is not a film about surfing; this is a film about a person that lived life to its fullest at the top of his industry, but did so facing insurmountable internal challenges. This story is about everything that made Andy Irons the man he was.

A Band Called Death
Punk before punk existed, three teenage brothers in the early '70s formed a band in their spare bedroom, began playing a few local gigs and even pressed a single in the hopes of getting signed. But this was the era of Motown and emerging disco. Record companies found Death’s music,and band name,too intimidating, and the group were never given a fair shot, disbanding before they even completed one album. Equal parts electrifying rockumentary and epic family love story, A Band Called Death chronicles the incredible fairy-tale journey of what happened almost three decades later, when a dusty 1974 demo tape made its way out of the attic and found an audience several generations younger. Playing music impossibly ahead of its time, Death is now being credited as the first black punk band (hell...the first punk band!), and are finally receiving their long overdue recognition as true rock pioneers.

Heart Of The Sea
Everyday, Australian Damien Rider is haunted by his childhood. He endured horrific circumstances which included rape and physical abuse. From the age of 6, Damien was left with no choice but to seek refuge under jetties and skate parks to hide from the abusing monsters that were chipping away at his soul. He was helpless. The police and neighbourhood offered no assistance, leaving Damien with ongoing trauma and a warped view of what childhood should be. Years into Adulthood, Damien’s life continued to suffer. The pain and flashbacks caused him to self destruct; pushing away the love of his life whilst fracturing the relationships he had with his two sons. After seeing through many psychologists who could offer no real solutions, Damien took matters into his own hands to find his peace and face his inner demons. He set off on what many thought to be an impossible journey: paddling 800km solo with ZERO support crew for 17 days on a paddle board propelled by just his hands – from his home in Coolangatta to Bondi Beach in Sydney. Damien spent months turning his body into an endurance machine. He would do 3 hour workouts, 8 hour workouts, even building up to a 24 workout, and shooting his progress. During his feat, Damien was alone with limited food and water, suffering fatigue and severe hunger; not a soul aware of where he was at any given time. He was forced to dig holes in the sand to get some sleep some nights, whilst using his paddle board to keep the rain out. This was no Hilton experience. He crossed shark breeding grounds with great fear and difficulty, having his board rocked by one and being stalked by more – in the middle of a man eating shark period where 5 people lost their lives in just 12 months to the ocean’s most feared predator. Damien faced unexplainable physical and mental fatigue day in and day out, but never once wavered from his dream – and documented it all via an onboard camera. On January 24 at 3:04pm, Damien Rider paddled into Bondi Beach, accomplishing his goal which left one paramedic wondering if he’s human, and why no one had set up a study on him to discover how on earth he was able to do it! Damien also left multiple paddle boarding world champions speechless, who train for extended periods to complete the gruelling 52 kilometres required for the annual Molokai to Oahu paddle boarding competition in Hawaii. To their astonishment, Damien was paddling this distance everyday! This world first achievement saw Damien not only conquer his demons, but 3 world records that now deservedly belong to him. Paddling also for his foundation PACA (Paddle Against Child Abuse) Damien speaks of his entire 800km paddle, and the journey from a frightened child to an older man free of distraught with a newfound spring in his step.

A Deeper Shade of Blue
A Deeper Shade of Blue by Master surf film maker Jack McCoy. This is not a surf movie, it is a film about surfing’s deepest roots: in the subconscious; in ancient lore; in the craft of surfboard building; in man’s perpetual quest for a joyful relationship with the natural world. In eleven interwoven chapters, today’s leading surfers are linked to those who came before, for a deeper appreciation of what it means to be a surfer and the soulful underlying power of modern surf culture. This is a big picture of a memorable story, beautifully told. It is a film about feeling good to be alive…and it will make you feel good. Chapter 1: The creation of waves; the first surfboard; and the surfers who dreamed of riding waves in all of their fascinating forms – then and now. Chapter 2: Surfing’s ancient Hawaiian roots; Waikiki beach boy surfboard makers, the hot curl; and a current practitioner of the Hawaiian beach boy lifestyle, Jamie O’Brien. Chapter 3: The Waikiki-California-Malibu connection, with Rabbit Kekai; Joe Quigg, and the Marshall Brothers, ripping on the Quigg designed Malibu Chip we know today as the longboard. Chapter 4: Short board, mini-gun and tube riding evolution in California, Australia and Hawaii, presented by surfer film-makers, featuring George Greenough, and modern image maker Jack McCoy’s new underwater tracking shots spotlight tube riding master Manoa Drollet, on the modern short board in Tahiti’s heaviest barrels. Chapter 5: High performance surfing, accelerated by surfers’ invention of skateboards and advanced by top-surfer shapers and Kelly Slater, coincides with the rise of professional contests and leads to a super-session at Jeffries bay with today’s best pros. Chapter 6: Princess Kaiulani and Gidget kick surfing into high gear and inspire a cavalcade of women surfers, presented by current World Champ Stephanie Gilmore. Chapter 7: Surfers’ inventions take surfing to the masses: the leg-rope, boogie, soft board, skimboard, skateboard, sailboard, kiteboard, wakeboard and snowboard foster aerial surfing. Jordy Smith is our brilliant test pilot. Chapter 8: Reclusive surfer-shaper Tom Wegener goes a step further back into historic Hawaiian surfboards and recreates the wooden alai’a in flexible Powlonia wood. A young crew of back-to-the-futurist surfers prove the timeless worth of this ancient ‘green’ craft. Chapter 9: After a life-changing accident, pro surfer Derek Hynd revisits the hot curl and Hawaiian finless surfing, updating finless board designs and giving them a mind –blowing workout that is a fitting wake for the fin. Chapter 10: Big wave riding history and the development of boards to ride them continues today with Marty Paradisis at one of the scariest big waves on the planet. Chapter 11: The Hawaiian tradition of Aloha has been surfing’s guiding creed since Duke Kahanamoku presented surfing to the world. Modern Hawaiian surfer Brian Keaulana and shaper Terry Chung exemplify the spirit of aloha. Terry glides like a bird on a futuristic foiled keel.

The Search For Freedom
THE SEARCH FOR FREEDOM is the story of a cultural revolution fueled by the human desire to live in the moment and do what makes you feel the most alive. We discover how an electrifying new world came about through pure energy and imagination and the infinite possibilities of self-expression available to anyone willing to drop in. This documentary, written and directed by Jon Long, is a visceral, visual experience told through the eyes some of the brightest pioneers, legends, visionaries and champions of surfing, snowboarding, skiing, skateboarding, mountain biking and more. This revolution has been televised, but the film explores the human stories behind this movement that has spilled into primetime. Ski film Godfather Warren Miller explains that, “The basic instinct of a human being is his search for freedom.” The film explores how living in the moment and doing what makes you feel most alive can be key to that freedom. On the surface, The Search for Freedom might appear to be about sports, or chasing thrills, but it is about so much more. It’s about feeling that pull of nature and wanting to go deeper into that element, that ocean. Many claim that the freedom experienced when you are riding a moving wave, becoming part of that wave for an instant, is impossible to shake. It’s a state of grace. And it’s the same whether you’re sliding on snow, skateboarding on concrete, or mountain biking through a rainforest. With a mind blowing cast: DANNY WAY • ROBBIE MADDISON • BOB MCKNIGHT • RON KAUK • GLENN SINGLEMAN • WARREN MILLER • BRUCE BROWN • TONY HAWK • JEREMY JONES • ANNIE BOULANGER • NYJAH HOUSTON • ROBBY NAISH • YVON CHOUINARD • GARY FISHER • KAI LENNY • KELIA MONIZ • KELLY SLATER • SHANE MCCONKEY • LOGAN LAPLANTE • MEG ROH • TOM SCHAAR • HEATHER SWAN • STEVE PEZMAN • CHRIS BURKARD • ROB CAMPBELL
