Movie Details

Synopsis From a continent famous for producing wave upon wave of unique, fiercely individual surfers, the stories of Australians Terry Fitzgerald and Cheyne Horan are suitably emblematic. Both welcomed conditions of all sorts, worked tirelessly on experimental board design, then stylishly exited the competitive phases of their careers. That they came to prominence in separate decades proves the point further. Sydney's Terry Fitzgerald, nicknamed the Sultan of Speed in the '70s, earned a reputation based on pure lines and maximum velocity. His performances at Jeffrey's Bay and on the North Shore of Hawai'i have since earned legendary status. Cheyne Horan, also from Sydney, exploded from the junior competitive scene in the early-'80s. He went on to establish himself as a contest machine, annually dominating the professional field with one notable exception: his nemesis, Mark Richards. During this period he became a vocal proponent of civil rights, alternative living, and tow-in surfing. Join us as we delve into the histories of two of surfing's most unique and engaging personalities.
