On Friday evening surf icon and legend, Rob Machado, was in London to introduce his new film MOMENTUM GENERATION to hundreds of film and surf fans as part of the London Surf Film Festival. The documentary was a huge success winning the award of Best Documentary.
Written and directed by award-winning filmmakers Jeff and Michael Zimbalist (The Two Escobars, Favela Rising) and from executive producer Robert Redford, MOMENTUM GENERATION shows the deep friendships that were formed and tested throughout their careers as top athletes and cultural icons. For the first time in their careers, the core members of surfing's most legendary crew - including Kelly Slater, Rob Machado, Shane Dorian, Taylor Knox, Benji Weatherley, Kalani Robb, Ross Williams, Taylor Steele, and Pat O'Connell - have agreed to tell their story together.
Fuelled by camaraderie - but even more so by a deep-seated competitiveness - this tight-knit crew became known as the "Momentum Generation" after being featured in Taylor Steele's groundbreaking films (The Drifter, Castles In the Sky). They went on to win world titles, break records, and redefine the world's perception of the surfer, youth culture, and what it means to be free. Momentum Generation will be available to download digitally from 5th November 2018.
