This just in from Chris Del Moro!
Hello amigos. Here's a few words from this amazing time down under. Big thanks to all the crew from S4C for their hard work and commitment to the cause and for finishing an amazing film. Huge alohas to Honolua, Matuse, Bing, etnies and CLIF bar for allowing me to follow my dreams. Infinite gratitude
It's not rare for you to find me in these parts around this time of year. As usual, I've been blessed with torrential rains, then sunny skies, warm waters, magical times around every corner and yes good waves to boot. But this time something's different, the waves are not just good, their great! The sand at most of the point breaks is the best quality my eyes have seen in the last decade. We've been ping ponging around sand dredging points since my arrival and mixing it in with good energetic works on the earth. The catalyst for getting me over here was the first screening of Surfers For Cetaceans documentary film "Minds in The Water" at the Byron Bay community center.
The night seems dreamy in the memory bank; hundreds of amazing people came to share in the night of visual stimuli, music and veggie grinds. From what we understand it's the largest number the theatre has ever drawn, with over a hundred people turned away. That day leading into the premier was energetically high, film crew was in head down organizing mode while Dave and us soothed the nerves by playing in the sea. After a day full of tube riding, we slid amongst the large numbers and all enjoyed our first viewing of a project that's taken over 5 years to finish. The feed back to the film was very positive and we are hoping to have it showing this summer along the California coast as well as Europe for the IWC. It's always funny to see your big hairy mug blabbing away, but overall the film has evolved into a stimulating and beautiful project that will be a great educational tool for many.
