WINNER: SPIRIT OF THE FESTIVAL AWARD
SPOONS – A SANTA BARBARA STORY Dir. Wyatt Daily
A small corner of coastal California has produced some of the world’s most talented surfers and innovators. The groomed lines that wrap around the cobblestone point at Rincon have provided the proving ground for many of surfing’s radical thinkers – from George Greenough, Rennie Yater, Bob McTavish, Marc Andrini and Nat Young to Wayne Lynch, Jon Pyzel, Al Merrick, Ryan Lovelace, Connor Coffin and more.
Combining stunning archive footage and thoughtful interviews this award winning documentary is an inspiring and insightful exploration. Chronicling the craftsmanship, work ethic, renegades and traditions that go beyond time spent in the sea, this must-see movie defines the evolving ethos of generations who forge an oceanic life around the notion of craft, heritage and place.
