Far ahead of its time and stylistically influential in the movement back to surfing-as-art-film in the tradition of Albe Falzon's "Morning of the Earth" and George Greenough's "Innermost Limits of Pure Fun", Adrift offers a rare and early glimpse into the surfing, lifestyle and what would become the beginnings of the modern day longboard renaissance. Witness Bonga Perkins, Dino Miranda and a young Joel Tudor (17-20 years old) along the way to their world championships, as well as a host of the top longboarders of the day: Donald Takayama, Kevin Connelly, Nat Young, Rell Sunn, Buffalo and Rusty Keaulana, Joey Valentin and Lance Ho'okano surf into sun-drenched time lapses and beautiful panoramas all stage-setting scene-stealers as exceptional camera work, editing and production value capture the beauty and innocence of "the best longboard surfing...and the best surf film soundtrack" of the modern era. Forging a unique and soulfully influential style that had not been seen in a long time, and has not been matched since, Adrift shatters the surf movie mold in true JBrother style.
Bonga Perkins, Dino Miranda, Joel Tudor, Donald Takayama, Kevin Connelly, Nat Young, Rell Sunn, Buffalo and Rusty Keaulana, Joey Valentin and Lance Ho'okano.
