Movie Details

Synopsis Narrated by David Wenham (Blinky Bill, 300, Lord of the Rings, SeaChange), Holding On recounts the journey of 6 young men from Cronulla, who were united in the late 1980's by the exciting new sport of bodyboarding. From humble beginnings and overcoming much adversity, they were labeled the Skid Kids and would gain worldwide attention for their reckless, no-holds-barred approach to surfing Shark Island, a wave previously deemed un-rideable. Driven by the desire to push the limits in both wave-riding and life, the Skid Kids revolutionized board design, created innovative competitions and became infamous for their wild antics both in and out of the water. A classic Australian coming of age story, Holding On features never-before-seen footage and a killer soundtrack supervised by Parkway Drives Winston McCall.
