BoardRoom – Legends of Surfboard Shaping
From the halcyon days of pre-World War II surfing in California to the post-war boom right up through the short board revolution, BoardRoom: Legends of Surfboard Shaping is an impressive bit of historically important first-person storytelling by the people who, by the sheer force of their personalities and passion for riding waves, helped evolve this once-upon-a-time renegade way of life into an undeniable national cultural touchstone. Featured interviews include Gordon Clark, Greg Noll, Bing Copeland, Donald Takayama, Terry Martin, Dick Brewer, Harold Iggy, Mike Hynson, Renny Yater and many more. BoardRoom chronicles the early days of balsa surfboard building and takes us through the early days of foam to the introduction of the short board. This movie captures a special time in surf history that will never be again. BoardRoom won awards at the X-Dance Film Festival, Hamburg Surf Film Festival, London Surf Film Festival.
