|About the Film
"BoardHeads" is a feature length documentary on the fascinating cultures of BoardRiders around the world, and how we're all connected. Not only Surfers, but SkateBoarders, SnowBoarders, WindSurfers, WakeBoarders and KiteSurfers…anyone riding ANY board on every conceivable surface is a BoardHead! We all share the stoke of boardriding and that's what makes us a Global Tribe. Even bodyboarders, sandboarders, skimboarders, skysurfers and gamers are part of the clan.
The documentary "BoardHeads" takes an inspiring look into the worldwide community
of BoardRiders. It defines what boarding culture is about and shows the impact of
boardheads in unique and empowering ways. Individually and collectively, the global
tribe of riders makes the world a cooler place.
Not only Surfers, but SkateBoarders, SnowBoarders, WindSurfers, WakeBoarders and
KiteSurfers... anyone riding ANY board on every conceivable surface is a BoardHead!
We all share the stoke of boardriding and that's what makes us a Global Tribe. Even
bodyboarders, sandboarders, skimboarders, skysurfers and gamers are part of the clan.
"BoardHeads" features real world shredders and action sports superstars including Kelly
Slater, Greg Noll, Tony Hawk, Shaun White, Robby Naish, Kevin Langeree and Shaun
Tomson. Its been filmed in DV and Hi-Def over the last six years at hot spots around the
world: Hawaii, Aruba, California, Australia, South Africa, Brazil, New Zealand, Italy,
France, Switzerland, Dominican Republic, Bonaire and many more awesome locations
thanks to the help of a global team of shooters.
"BoardHeads" is designed to be inclusive - I've not only interviewed professionals, but
typical riders around the world as well. In addition to exploring their passions for boards,
we discussed common bonds that all boarders share: Families, Relationships, Dangers,
Spirituality, Travel, Vehicles and Lessons. These topics, combined with lots of great
action and music, make "BoardHeads" entertaining, exciting and inspiring.
While making "BoardHeads" I've met amazing people and been to awesome places, and
one of the things I started noticing almost everywhere is the way boardheads "Share
the Stoke" with others. South African kids taken off the street by learning to surf;
windsurfers building a rig to take out their paralyzed friend; surfers taking autistic
children out in the waves; and seeing people without an arm or leg who still get out there
and ride boards.these inspiring stories have become the heart of "BoardHeads." In the
spirit of sharing the stoke, proceeds from "BoardHeads" will be shared with charities like
Surfer's Healing and the Surfrider Foundation.
"BoardHeads" is finally finished and DVDs are available. Please go to the 'get the gear'
