Going Vertical is NOT an ordinary surf movie. Going Vertical successfuly tells you the story about how and where shortboarding was invented. The movie contains a lot of old footage you would never see in a surf magazine or in one of the newer surf movies, it is definitely the right movie for you if you want to learn more about surf culture itself rather than just watching some dudes surfing.
After the sreening, I had the chance to meet surf legend Dick Brewer himself, who also answered some questions at the Q&A. I recorded parts of the Q&A and uploaded them on YouTube, you can access them through the links below:
