Nothing ventured, nothing gained

I’m stoked to see the video, especially after seeing the short clip about a dozen times already. Any idea when it’s coming out on video/DVD? I’d love to go see one of the premieres, but as I’m nowhere near CA… Wish there were more travelling surf movies like McCoy’s Blue Horizon. Sure is cool to see them in the theater. A rarity that the premiers make it to Hawaii, much less the Big Island…
