THE SURFER’S JOURNAL SERIES: HAKMAN / BERTLEMANN
Each era of surfing finds its quintessential expression in the special
talents of rare individuals. Jeff Hakman and Larry Bertlemann were two
of the most distinctive and brilliant surfers of their times, Although
they could scarcely be more different, they shared common struggles.
They were the defining poles of shorthboard revolution in Hawaii. Hakman
reigned as the standard of excellence from his astonishing 1965 victory
(age 17) at the first Duke Kahanamoku Invitational until he drifted out
of the limelight in the mid-1970’s. As a boy, he faced a man’s
challenges: as a man his challenges were even greater. Hakman is
surfing’s ultimate survivor.

THE SURFER’S JOURNAL SERIES: CURREN / SLATER
Tom Curren and Kelly Slater are surfing’s most important figures in the
last 20 years. Both surfers dominated their eras competitively: Tom in
the ’80s; Kelly in the ’90s. Both exhibited innate natural ability and
wave knowledge; and between the two of them, they amassed an
unprecedented nine world titles.

The Kelly Slater bonus segment is a must see! Slater surfing huge tow-in
waves in France and tearing it up at “Le Piste”, a classic French beach
break. Kelly proves that a break from the world tour has done nothing to
hurt his aggressive surfing style. Accompanied by Ozomatli’s, “Superbowl
Sundae”, this hip soundtrack and Kelly’s powerful aerial attack will
leave you craving a surf session yourself!
