From the Directors of “The Two Escobars,” Michael and Jeff Zimbalist, comes a surf documentary about the 80’s/90’s pro surf posse; Kelly Slater, Rob Machado, Shane Dorian, Taylor Knox, Ross Williams, Taylor Steele, and Benji Weatherly. When Benji’s parents split up, his mother moved to Pipeline on the North Shore of Oahu. World-renowned surf competitions like Billabong Pipeline Masters, Vans Triple Crown, WSL Championships are held at the Banzai Pipeline and Sunset Beach, with “The Eddie” at nearby Waimea Bay. Some of the local surfers knew each other from amateur contests, however, once Benji moved to the North Shore, his house became the place to be and hang out. Their bonds of friendship are tested as they go through different stages of life, love, loss, and competitions.
