SURF MOVIE SUMMARY
For fourty years, underground surfing video makers Greg Weaver and Spyder Wills documented surf discovery as it migrated around the globe. Their shots captured on celluloid became the timeless images for such films as "The Forgotten Island of Santosha", "Big Wednesday", "Pacific Vibrations", "Uluwatu" and many more.
"Chasing the Lotus" surfing DVD is a cinematic journey inspired by many of the reels that were lost in the making of these films. Since that time, these reels have resurfaced and are now brought to light.
A fusion of rare super 8mm film, photo stills and contemporary interviews blend together to make "Chasing the Lotus" the most in-depth look at surfing discovery ever made. Narrated by Jeff Bridges.
