The Ductumentary: style is everything

"The Ductumentary" is a portrait of Joel Tudor's greatest contribution to surfing and longboarding.

The documentary, directed by Graham Nash and Reagan Ritchie, explores the multiple aspects of Joel's life as a surfer, his ultimate decision to leave competitive surfing and the vision that inspired him to create the unique Duct Tape contests.

"I need to have something that is inspiring, that kids come and see and get to pull their own little unique twist off of and create their own identity. For me that's the whole goal of the contest", says Tudor.

Featuring archival footage from Joel Tudor's prolific career to scenes from all around the world at the Vans Duct Tape Invitational, "The Ductumentary" truly encapsulates the creative energy that's become of modern longboarding today.

"The Ductumentary" covers the past few years of the Duct Tape series, offering a glimpse into what has become a movement as much as it is a contest.

Featuring Alex Knost, Tyler Warren, Ryan Burch, Jared Mell and several others from around the globe, the movie is a quintessential view into one of surfing's most progressive and stylistic facets, capturing the now while opening the door to a bright future.
