Slow Is Fast chronicles what Dan Malloy has called "a mini-adventure in our own backyard." In September 2012, three men jumped on a train headed north -- along with bicycles, a surfboard, wetsuits, flippers, a microphone, and some cameras. The idea was to travel down the coast by bike, stopping to surf; staying with friends, family, and acquaintances; poaching camps when need be, and doing their best to earn their keep while learning from folks who do good work and get by along the California coast. They visit a horse-powered farm, an activist/artist farmer and his family, a sign maker, a board shaper, and a man who crafts prehistoric tools. They bike and surf and take the two o'clock AM armed watch over the vegetable beds. They meet a tracker, a blade smith, a free diver, and a family of knife throwers. They run into roadkill and many great waves. Altogether a portrait of California only accessible via human-powered travel.
