Back on the North Shore for another season.

The winter of 1980/81. Hawaiians, Aussies, international all stars, and the new wave of Californians are taking it to the next level.

This marks the final season before the tri-fin became the pro board design of choice.

Greg Weaver and Spyder Wills are on the scene, this time with a Super 8 sound rig to document the surfing world's proving grounds.

See and hear what it was like to be there, with classic man-on-the-beach interviews and beautiful scenic and surf cinematography.

Featured surfers include Dane Kealoha, Bobby Owens, Buttons, Cheyne Horan, PT, Ian Cairns, Shaun Thomson, Mark Richards, and many more.

Filmed by Greg Weaver and Spyder Wills.
