DOORS 7:00 PM, SCREENING 7:30 PM
Join us at Patagonia Bowery for a screening of Uncharted Waters: The Personal History of Wayne Lynch, a documentary about one of Australia’s surfing legends.
Wayne Lynch burst onto the Australian surfing scene in the 1960s and rode a wave like no one else. He tested himself against the big waves and produced something new, beautiful, 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 biographical documentary about 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.
DVDs will be available for purchase.
This event is free.
Grouper eats 4ft shark in one bite.
A group of fisherman off the coast of Florida shot this moderately horrifying video of a prehistoric-looking fish taking down a small shark in a single bite.
The Nightmare of the Sea—an appropriately named Goliath grouper fish—can apparently grow up to 800 pounds and live as long as 50 years. According to ABC, grouper fish normally don’t eat sharks, but do apparently enjoy silently stalking divers from time to time, so just think about that the next time you go in the ocean.
