Through the experiences of surfers and the locals they meet throughout their travels, the film takes a thought-provoking look into the environmental destruction threatening known and unknown surf spots. ‘Out There’ questions impending threats to Trestles in Southern California, pulp mill pollution in Southern Chile and unrestricted development along Hawaii’s famed North Shore.
“’Out There’ features local surfers speaking to the issues facing their backyard beaches and waves,” says TGR Co-Founder, Steve Jones. “Taking this film to coastal communities across the country will hopefully inspire more people to take action locally to protect their beaches, while raising money for Surfrider.”
The film highlights the surfing of John John Florence, Shane Dorian, Ian Walsh, Jamie Sterling, Pancho Sullivan, Jordy Smith, Jamie O’Brien, Nate Yeomans, Brett Simpson, Greg Long, Garrett McNamara, Herbie Fletcher, Torrey Meister, Sterling Spencer, Raimana Van Bastolaer, Donavan Frankenreiter, Maya Gabeira, Manoa Drollet and Carlos Burle.
Each copy of ‘Out There’ comes with a free, one-year membership to the Surfrider Foundation.
