Men of Wood & Foam and Morning of the Earth
Men Of Wood And Foam tells the story of the birth of the surf boom in Australia, a golden decade when surfing was transformed into a sport and culture with its own music, movies, fashions and heroes. Underpinning this transition was a small group of surfboard artisans who set up their primitive factories in a former market garden at Brookvale, close to the favoured wave spots of Dee Why Point and Fairy Bower. These pioneers became known as “The Brookvale Six”.
Morning of the Earth
One ocean once covered the world it was the… Morning Of The Earth. A film by Albert Falzon, 1972. Morning of the Earth accurately documents the spiritual link that once existed between nature and surfing. Beautifully shot, Morning of the Earth reveals a fantasy of three exotic lands. Bali, Hawaii and Australia, where surfers made their own houses, surfboards and lived in harmony with nature.
With an original 70’s soundtrack to stir the soul, Morning of the Earth is a milestone in surf movies and forever a part of surfing history. Featuring epic footage and timeless surfing from Nat Young, Michael Peterson, Stephen Cooney and Gerry Lopez.
