About the Film:
Directed by Joshua Pomer. USA, 2012, 80 mins. Hawai‘i premiere.
California had been a surfer Mecca for generations, but never seriously considered for its big waves. That changed in 1975, when a Half Bay high school kid named Jeff Clark surfed a 20-foot wave outside of Pillar Point Harbor, just south of San Francisco. His pioneering achievement singlehandedly gave birth to the legend of Mavericks. The story of California’s most notorious big wave is one of triumph and incredible danger and loss. Get an insider’s view of the wave’s discovery and legend, learn about the passion and dedication of surfers like Jeff Clark, Peter Mel, Flea, Shane Dorian, Nick Lamb, Zack Wormhout, Brock Little and Mike Parsons, and honor the sacrifice of men like Mark Foo, Jay Moriarty and others who dared to take on this unforgiving wave.
