LONG-11. The Yin and Yang of Gerry Lopez

USA, Feature Documentary, 2021, 100 min

A film about the world’s greatest surfer, directed by the world’s greatest skateboarder. Charlie on the Move

From award-winning documentary filmmaker Stacy Peralta comes The Yin and Yang of Gerry Lopez, a film that lifts the veil on one of surfing’s most graceful and enigmatic heroes. While “Mr. Pipeline” is famously known for his calm demeanor in the tube, Gerry built his career with aggressive, wave-stealing surfing that left behind a trail of awe and sometimes anger. Gerry, now 74, is as radical as he is Zen; he transcends categorization. He’s one of the most influential surfers and surfboard shapers of all time, an entrepreneur, a family man, a movie star and a lifelong yogi who brought surfing to new frontiers. His influence on modern surfing (and snowboarding) is immeasurable, and, for the first time, his story is being told in full. Big waves… that must be seen on the big screen.
