Recently I was reminded of a surf film premier I attended last fall on the North Shore of Hawaii in Haleiwa. This particular surf film entitled, One Track Mind, was another amazing 16mm creation directed by Chris Malloy and produced by Woodshed Films.
The title does a great job of explaining what the whole surf film is about because professional athletes in any sport have a one-track mind focused on their passion for the sport they represent. Surfing is not the exception; in fact I would even venture out to say that surfers are the epitome of one-track minded people seeing as surfing is somewhat a lifestyle.
One Track Mind does and amazing job of showing the mind set of a variety of surfers including Jordy Smith, Kalohe Andino, Julian Wilson, Mick Fanning, Dane Reynolds, Joel Parkinson, and classic pros like Kelly Slater, Sunny Garcia, Mark Occhilupo, Wayne Bartholomew and Tom Curren.
It’s extremely interesting to hear what these surfers have to say in this unique surf film. In a series of short interviews they explore topic like who each person idols, the dimensions of their favorite board, and what kind of surfboard fins they prefer.
This is such a unique surf film that gives you an inside look into the minds of people who have shaped surfing into what it is today. On top of this there is obviously some amazing surfing in world-class spots including Mexico, Indonesia, Micronesia, Australia and Southern California. Another amazing creation by Chris Malloy and Woodshed Films.
