The Plight of the Torpedo People by Keith Malloy (hardcover book)

SKU: BK685

$45
The Plight of the Torpedo People is a collection of bodysurfing photographs, frame grabs and personal essays documenting the making of Keith Malloy's first film, Come Hell or High Water--the first feature-length film to be made about the sport of bodysurfing--between May 2009 and August 2011. A winner of Best Film and Best Cinematography awards on the festival circuit, Come Hell or High Water explores the history and development of bodysurfing alongside the purity of experience that is riding a wave, taking a unique look at the culture and beauty of the sport, while capturing the stories and locations of those who belong to its community. The film's unanticipated popularity may well reflect the less-is-more, environmentally aware consciousness of our times; as the simplest of all ocean sports, bodysurfing requires little more than swim fins and some waves. The Plight of the Torpedo People is a collaborative work by the best bodysurfers of today, captured doing what they do best by some of the world's best surf cinematographers and photographers. With 69 photographs in color, the book includes an introduction by Keith Malloy.
