Tubular Swells / A Day in the Life of Wayne Lynch

1976 NR

Two classic surf films from the 1970s spotlight the burgeoning creativity of the time by profiling the athletes who carried the sport of surfing to the next level. Tubular Swells (1975) applies a dreamlike vibe to the action filmed in Hawaii and then-undiscovered spots like Indonesia and Bali. A Day in the Life of Wayne Lynch (1978) profiles the legendary surfer who helped pioneer the concept of shortboard ripping.
