Friday, Feb. 12 * Sea of Darkness By Michael Oblowitz’s dark tale of paradise and surfing in Indonesia

The story of how the popular surf spot Gland was started and the boat Indies Trader, which became the Quiksilver Crossing Boat. 1970′s Place: the Indonesian coast. For a small group of thrill-seekers, surfing was an addiction, an attitude, and way of life – one that sometimes was seen through the lens of psychedelics. In Sea of Darkness, a group of ragtag surfers coast from high tide to high risk led by a man shrouded in mystery of near-mythical proportions. As they balance their thirst for the perfect pipeline with the dangerous risk/reward of smuggling and other illicit items across the South Pacific.
