Synopsis

Wavelength Magazine is proud to be hosting a London screening of Momentum Generation, a seminal new documentary from Universal Studios.


The film tells the story of how shared life at one house in 1990s Hawaii moulded a crew of young surfers into our sport’s most iconic characters.


Compiled using thousands of hours of unseen footage from the team's personal archives and dozens of hours of raw, in-depth interviews, the film charts the group's journey from humble beginnings in broken homes to the highest echelons of competitive surfing, taking in the victories, the rivalries and the tragedies along the way.


“We’ve always been intrigued, even envious, when hearing stories of cultural icons who lived together during their formative years and helped each other to become hugely influential individuals in their own right.” said the film’s directors Jeff and Michael Zimbalist. “But rarely do we hear of these historic convergences being captured on camera. So we knew it was a special opportunity when Taylor Steele offered us access to his full video archive of surfing’s most legendary crew living together on Oahu’s North Shore during their teenage years. This was the crew that would go on to take over the sport, win world titles, and forever reshape worldwide culture in the 1990s and beyond.”


“In their journeys, we saw the same questions we have been asking ourselves in our careers about the tradeoffs of success versus contentment, individual gain versus collective unity,” continued the pair. “In a culture that celebrates achievement above all else, how do we remind ourselves of the deep importance of friendship?”


The Momentum Generation is a must-see for any surf fan, offering up the rare chance to view our sporting heroes in a whole different light.
