“BoardRoom - Legends of Surfboard Shaping” Surf Film Festival Hamburg

11.05.2012

German Director Markus Davids? historic surf epic is hitting film festivals in his hometown Hamburg (english version).

BoardRoom is a first person narrative, which chronicles the journey of surfboard shaping, from the halcyon days of pre World War II, to the post war boom of the early 1960?s, and finally ending with the beginning of the short-board revolution of the late 60?s. Supported by classic surf tunes by The Supertones, and the Hawaiian duo Hapa, BoardRoom gives a detailed account of the evolution of board design, surfboard materials, as well as the impact of the surfing lifestyle on pop culture.

Boardroom was conceptualized and filmed over the past three years by underwater cinematographer and director, Markus Davids. Interviews include legendary surfboard shapers, such as Greg Noll, Bing Copeland, Dick Brewer, Hap Jacobs, Renny Yater, the Endless Summer?s Robert August and Michael Hynson, Rich Harbour, Larry Gordon, Terry Martin, Harold Iggy, Mike Eaton, Dave Sweet, Bruce Jones, Mickey Munoz, Leroy Grannis, Donald Takayama, Bob Bolen, Ole Olsen, and many more. Their stories help recreate the evolution of the surfboard, from redwood to balsa to foam boards. All of these shapers, interviewed in one movie, gives the rare opportunity of a first hand account into the experiences of these early pioneers which shaped the foundation of surf culture. The film also includes interviews of controversial foam and blank mogul Gordon Clark, and his biggest competitor Harold Walker of Walker Foam.

BoardRoom also features an unique and never seen collection of rare historic photographs and archival footage which helps to drive the narrative story of the surfboard shapers.

Davids? movie BoardRoom - Legends of surfboard shaping is currently screening at film festivals up and down the California coast. The next presentation will be at the Surf Film Festival Hamburg, BoardRoom has recently won the Emerging Filmmakers award at the 2012 X-Dance Action Sports Film Festival, and the Aloha Accolade. Award from the 2012 Honolulu Film Festival. It has recently screened at the Newport Beach, San Diego, Santa Barbara Film Festival, and the San Luis Obispo Film Festival.
