Robert Red­ford is among the ex­ec­u­tive pro­duc­ers of this new fea­ture-length doc­u­men­tary from Emmy and Pe­abody Award win­ners Jeff and Michael Zim­bal­ist, which takes a deep dive into the con­stantly evolv­ing world of surf­ing. The sport in Amer­ica was cham­pi­oned in ’60s songs by the Beach Boys and teen-cen­tric ro­man­tic com­edy movies, but the pub­lic saw surf­ing as a nov­elty ac­tiv­ity un­til the 1990s, when a group of punk rock-lov­ing teenagers trav­eled to Hawaii and be­gan to change the sport.
