In 1972, Kevin Naughton and Craig Peterson took to the road with surfboards, camera gear and an untamable desire for adventure. For ten years they scoured the planet in search of perfect waves and experiences only a traveler on the road encounters. This documentary film chronicles their journey.
Featuring original photos and Super 8 footage from California, Mexico, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Africa, Morocco, Ireland, France and Fiji.
The journey was documented in a series of travel articles. The film "The Far Shore" is a cinematic journey inspired by those same articles. A fusion of stills, Super 8 film, live interviews and the articles themselves blend together to make this a multi-layered film experience.
For those who remember reading their articles in the 70's to those just beginning their surfing lives, "The Far Shore" is an education. A historical document of surf culture and a deep look into two of surfing's great personalities.
