SHARK PARK – The Heaviest Wave in California by Greg Huglin

Veteran water-cinematographer Greg
Huglin has gone to the ends of the earth to
shoot dolphins, sharks, and surfers, but he
discovered this newest treasure in his own backyard. After
years of looking for the next Mavericks or Cortes Banks, the
Santa Barbara, California-based filmmaker found this wedge of
heaving, terrifying reef just outside the one-mile exclusion zone
surrounding the Channel Islands National Park.

This well-produced and straightforward documentary
recounts Huggie’s first two visits to the reef, the second of which
turned up excellent if ledgy open-ocean barrels. On hand to rip
(or be ripped) were a number of the guys you’d want to have
there for the occasion, including Carlos Burle, Chris and Dan
Malloy, Rusty Long, Garrett McNamara, Don Curry, and several
more, supported by PWC rescue expert Shawn Alladio, who
always keeps reality in focus in these surreal situations.

This is an enticing documentary on an historic new surf
spot. Nice soundtrack by Craig McConnell (Icarus Music). It
comes with a bonus short in which a free-diver schmoozes with
a 20’ great white shark off South Africa. Good fun, what?! – DK
