The Glass Wall

"The Glass Wall" is a magical portrait of surfing in the 1960s.

Directed by surf filmmaker from Santa Ana, Jim Freeman, the 16 mm movie features some of the best noseriders of California's golden age performing in idyllic point breaks.

Freeman was 22 in 1966 when he met Greg MacGillivray, another Orange County surf filmmaker.

The duo formed what would be one of surfing's best-matched and most successful partnerships.

While both were meticulous and hardworking, the easygoing Jim Freeman generally served as the team's technical expert, while MacGillivray was the creative force.

Freeman was inducted into the Huntington Beach Surfing Walk of Fame in 2000.
