The Fletcher family is one of surfing’s most, well, hmm. Influential? Cherished? Infamous? Beloved? Let’s go with that one, beloved. Herbie Fletcher, the patriarch, was one of the most advanced surfers of the 70s, and his kids, Christian and Fletcher, each have heavily imprinted surf culture. Christian with a gritty punk approach to skateboard-sizing surfing, and Nathan, who appears in this film, as a quiet charger, smoking cigarettes on the boat before leaping into impossibly large waves. Here, Herbie and Nate enjoy some father son time, banging down dusty Baja roads in an old Chevy. Perfect.
