European Premiere: FISH: THE DOCUMENTARY Dir. JOSEPH RYAN, USA
Joseph Ryan has crafted a beautiful balanced and honed documentary about the board design that revolutionised surfing forever. At a time when logs ruled the line-up, San Diego surfer Steve Lis came up with a design so radical it remained an underground sensation for years. With insightful contributions from a who’s who of surf culture, plus awesome action footage from pioneer Steve Lis through to modern day pioneers like Dave Rastovich, via Derek Hynd, Mark Richards, Tom Curren and Rob Machado, this really is a must see.
