The special event screenings will give the audience the chance to gain a rare insight into Wayne’s story, as well as having the chance to meet and interact with him in person. It’s been a long journey and to be able to see the final product in cinemas is incredibly rewarding”.

Wayne Lynch burst onto the Australian surfing scene in the 1960s and rode a wave like no one else. He opened up fresh possibilities with a radically new vertical style. He was a champion, a draft dodger, a hippie, an outsider, a revolutionary, a messiah, an environmentalist, a victim, a wild man, a pauper and an enigma. He tested himself against the big waves and produced something beautiful and exhilarating and elegant in the process.
If you've ever surfed, or if you appreciate the sheer grace of a board rider racing down the face of a big wave, this biography of one of Australia's legends will make your heart beat that little bit faster and have you longing for the freedom, beauty and simplicity of a wave and a board.
