September Sessions: By September of 1999, Slater was eager to escape and find perfect waves where he could push his surfing to new levels without the restrictions of competition. So he took off to Sumatra, Indonesia, along with some friends, to fulfill that long awaited dream. Knowing full well something extraordinary could happen on a mission of this sort, Kelly asked Jack to come along, and Johnson brought the same 25-year old camera he’d used during the filming of Thicker Than Water, which had just been released. New levels of strength of purity were reached as Slater and friends pushed their surfing to limits that have yet to be matched.

The Smog of the Sea chronicles a 1-week journey through the remote waters of the Sargasso Sea. Marine scientist Marcus Eriksen invited onboard an unusual crew to help him study the sea: renowned surfers Keith & Dan Malloy, musician Jack Johnson, spearfisher woman Kimi Werner, and bodysurfer Mark Cunningham become citizen scientists on a mission to assess the fate of plastics in the world’s oceans.

Dulce: A short documentary surf film that takes a fresh look at Pavones – both the wave that made it famous and other nearby gems. Spanning six months of swell, the film explores the beautiful, crusty, pure, and at times quirky lives of surfers reveling in Nature at the end of the road, and how those lifestyles may now be subject to change in the face of development.Featuring the surfing, music, and thoughts from a cast of locals, international transplants and travelers – Dulce is a no-budget treat that reminds us how deeply we owe the Ocean and where to go from here.

The Weekend Sailor: In 1973, with almost no experience, Mexican captain Ramon Carlin raced against the superstars of sailing in a 9 month deadly round the world regatta winning the overall prize.
