The average wave lasts six second. The rest of the day is spent getting there. Meet the spirit of "Here & Now", the lastest surf movie by renowned filmmaker Taylor Steele and newcomer Nathan Myers.
"Here & Now" was shot in one day. More than 25 filmmakers and surfers worked in cooperative mode to document the world of surfing in a single 24-hour period: May 2, 2012.
The result of the surf film by Taylor Steele and Nathan Myers gathers shapers, photographers, legends, beginners, third world, first world and surf world. Surfing is, in fact, the center of it all.
From the anonymous wave rider to the world champion Kelly Slater, the surf movie covers all aspects and details of modern surfing.
"I was watching a documentary that YouTube and Ridley Scott made called 'Life in a Day' - basically same idea, but people around the world uploaded footage from their day and YouTube edited it together", Nathan Myers explained in Australia's Surfing Life.
"I thought, 'This would be cool to do with surfing'. I called up Taylor, who happened to be with Kelly Slater at the time, and they were like, 'Let's do it!'", Myers adds.
