Going Vertical - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
GOING Vertical is the epic search to unravel surfing’s great mystery… who started the Shortboard Revolution?
The debate still rages across the Pacific – who really lit the fuse of this surfing revolution during the tumultuous 1967 ‘summer of love’ that turned the sport, literally, upside down.
Was it the Hawaiians or the Californians, or was it the brainchild of Australian surfing legend and surfboard designer Bob McTavish, collaborating with George Greenough?
Going Vertical, for the first time, tells both sides of this compelling story.
Filmed in Australia, Hawaii and California and featuring extraordinary archive footage of surf legends of the past four decades as well as the hottest surfers today, Going Vertical is not your usual surfing film.
Set to a pumping soundtrack including tracks by Pearl Jam and Powderfinger plus iconic artists from the summer of love including Manfred Man and Thunderclap Newman, Going Vertical is the story of an era, of a revolution and the extraordinary characters who made it happen.
Blue Dolphin Film & Video are pleased to announce the DVD release of Going Vertical on Monday, September 10, 2012.
