One man's struggle to transcend.

"This humble film is about a friend of mine named Michael and his daily ritual to find his natural self through surfing. The film was shot in one day. Michael has not seen the film yet...I'm waiting to screen it for him personally. He will see it this week.
I had discussed shooting the film with Michael for a few weeks and then one day he approached me and asked if I wanted to go film him getting into the water. I grabbed my camera and we shot everything in a few hours.
There is more interview footage of him detailing his initial accident and his return to the ocean/surfing that didn't make it into the final cut.
One interesting fact is that the place where we filmed him entering the water was the exact location he broke his neck and became disabled 30 years ago. He told me that time and time again he finds himself at that spot on earth without intention of being is one of his favorite places to be."
