Through the experiences of surfers and the locals they meet throughout their travel, the film takes a thought-provoking look into the environmental destruction threatening known and unknown surf spots. Out There questions impending threats to Trestles in Southern California, pulp mill pollution in Southern Chile and unrestricted development along Hawaii’s famed North Shore.
“Out There features local surfers speaking to the issues facing their backyard beaches and waves,” says TGR Co-Founder, Steve Jones. “Taking this film to coastal communities across the country will hopefully inspire more people to take action locally to protect their beaches, while raising money for Surfrider.”
Each copy of Out There comes with a free, one-year membership to the Surfrider Foundation. Check out the latest teasers for Out There, the film’s tour schedule and order DVDs and TGR Clothing online at TetonGravity.com.
Sponsorship from Jeep, SoBe Life Water, Surfrider Foundation, Surfer Magazine, and Billabong make this film and tour possible.
