Remote. Cold. Russian. But there’s no one out! Chris Burkard, Keith Malloy, Cyrus Sutton, Trevor Gordon, and Dane Gudauskas prepare to surf in Kamchatka. Keep track of their travels on Instagram with the hashtag #kamshaka. Good luck gentlemen! I’ll stop complaining about the 68° water here in Southern California, at least until you return.
The west-coast premiere of Keith Malloy’s Come Hell or High Water is tomorrow (Friday) night in Encinitas, at the La Paloma Theater. Tickets will be available at the La Paloma box office the day of the showing. It doesn’t look like there are any presale or online options. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the film screens at 8 p.m.
The film explores the history and progression of the sport of bodysurfing and the pureness that comes from riding a wave. Shot primary in 16mm, the film takes a unique look at the culture, beauty and simplicity of the sport, capturing the stories and locations of those who belong to this community.
More information about Come Hell or High Water, including future screening dates and locations, is available here.
