Gerry’s imprint on the world of surfing is hard to quantify given the breadth and scope of his contributions; from pioneering big wave surfing during the short board revolution, to building an iconic shaping business and the influential brand Lightening Bolt, to taming the power of Pipeline with beauty & grace, all the way through to his quest for spiritual balance. Gerry is a man like no other, and the film will track Gerry’s life & accomplishments through his eyes, as he looks back on his journey and his legacy.
