Barefoot Cinema’s renowned ‘Surfing Nights’ are back! Taking donations for One Wave
charity once again, we present directors Jeff and Michael Zimbalist’s excellent, eloquent documentary, Momentum Generation. Featuring surfing icons Kelly Slater, Rob Machado, Taylor Knox, Ross Williams, Shane Dorian and more, Momentum Generation tells the story of a ragtag community of teenage surfers and how they brought their sport to unprecedented heights.
You do not need to be interested in surfing to be excited and moved by this film, as it
explores how the world-class surfers developed a sense of self, how their friendships
formed, frayed and healed, and how they found meaning in life.

Momentum Generation puts out a notably wide welcome mat, which means you don't have to know or even care that much about pro-surfing history to become absorbed by it.

A surf film might not be the first thing you'd expect to bring you repeatedly to tears, but I can say with authority it is possible.
