Bombora: The Story of Australian Surfing
‘It’s impossible to imagine what Australia would be like without surfing’ – Tim Winton
Bombora - The Story of Australian Surfing tells the stories of the pioneers like Duke Kahanamoku and Isobel Letham, the first Aussie surfing icons like Midget Farrelly and Bob Pike, the bad boys like Nat Young and Michael Petersen. It looks at the exploits of innovators like Wayne Lynch and Bob McTavish, and the new breed of Australian surfers riding 40 ft monster waves off the West Australian coast. It’s a story of people living wild lives, craving freedom.
Surfing has pushed the boundaries of Australia’s way of life and rules of behaviour – and become a multi-billion dollar a year industry that stretches around the world, with a mix of mongrel, grace and cool that is utterly Australian. Bombora features incredible archive footage of surfing in Australia, a brilliant rock and roll soundtrack, and interviews with 10 former Australian World Champions.
