Movie Details

Synopsis Hawaiian surfers Gerry Lopez and Barry Kanaiaupuni represent the yin and yang of wave riding. Lopez, the elegant tube rider famous for his slouched, ultra-cool statements at Pipeline, has become a timeless icon for the soul of surfing. His very name has become a sort of shorthand for surfing style. Never considered a particularly competitive man, he has nonetheless maintained a slot in that ultimate: the Pipe lineup. His explorations in Indonesia have inspired two generations of adventure travelers in the unending quest for hidden perfection.

Barry Kanaiaupuni or BK to just about everyone, has always had his feet planted on the pillars of speed and power. Famed for his Sunset Beach speed runs on skinny, javelin-like boards, BK artfully transitioned from longboard stylist to prototypical North Shore power merchant. This edition of The Surfer's Journal lets us study two of the sport's most enduring and revered surfers, including their finest rides at their favorite waves.
