The Kill Five

From Josh Pomer, the award winning director of The Westsides comes The Kill Five. Surf movies were changing. Jack Johnson and Chris Malloy won movie of the year with Thicker than Water, inspiring Pomer to shoot much of this film in 16mm. Having gone to film school with Johnson, Pomer elevated his skills and movie production value by incorporating 16mm Bolex into his camera rotation. As a result, a moody feel is brought forth into the heart of the film, brought on by the colors of the water captured.

In addition to 16mm soul surfing, The Kill 5 includes The Kills own flare for the radical a graceful balance pulled off by film director Josh Pomer. Pomer scores exclusive and reclusive legends like Kelly Slater and Tom Curren in their home elements. Curren surfs at his home break the only surfer in the water at his private point break.

The Kill 5 is an ode to Kelly Slater. Kelly has two sick sessions: a mental session and interview about the fun tropical surf in Tahiti, followed by a session at a California surf spot known for its amazing one-of-a-kind wedge. Slater drops in behind the lip over and over again. He pulls off critical turning on a dime, reminding the world once again why hes still the best surfer in the world.

The Santa Cruz Harbor section, Tom Curren at his own private surfing spot, Kelly Slater at a secret spot in California, Ratboy in Indonesia and Flea surfing Mavericks all shot in 16mm. And dont forget Shawn Barney Barron pulling off the one-of-a-kind maneuver The Barrel Roll. Barney completes a full 360 standing up inside the tube of a wave. A move that has never been done again.

Originally released in 2002
