Tracing the path carved by Aussie surf pioneers, The Brookvale Six, who were instrumental in creating the Australian surf industry and culture.
Accompanied by a live soundtrack from soulful surf rockers, Band of Frequencies.
Filled with rare archive footage and frequently hilarious interviews with the trailblazers themselves, including Coffs own surfing legend Scotty Dillon, Men of Wood & Foam is a compelling look at Australian surf culture in the 70’s and 80’s, a time well documented in America, but less so here at home. Looking at surf music, industry development and the historical context of the era with the biting wit writer and surf journo Phil Jarratt is known for, the film is a lively and fun look back at an era that now feels almost mystical.
Band of Frequencies bring a wildly unique touch to the film that they’ve sound-tracked, upping the ante and turning the film into a transporting experience.
