The guys at Two Eyes Film have made some of our favourite surf films. Bringing the British deadpan sense of humour to the often overly serious surf world works well and if you’ve seen the Shaper or Freezing you’ll know what we’re talking about (if you haven’t scroll down and dig in).
The guys have a new project they’re launching on Kickstarter and you can help, details below, everything they’ve done so far has been gold so this should be incredible also. If you can afford to help some inspirational creative dudes out then get on over to Kickstarter…
Our new project – “The Outrider”
In 1979, North Shore shaper, Mike Strident shaped the most radical board ever ridden – “The Outrider”. Strident’s single fin design changed the game and took him to the very pinnacle of professional wave riding. But then “The Thruster” happened.
Made irrelevant over night by the three-fin movement, Strident’s shaping genius was lost to the dark shadows of the 80’s.
But 40 years later, snake-hipped Californian free surfer, Tommy Tonata is trying to revive “The Outrider” on the point breaks of Malibu and wants Strident to shape him a new board. But Strident would rather stab his eyes out with a spoon.
A surfer and a shaper from totally different eras go face to face; featuring Baja acid trips, talk-show melt downs, surf sequences scored by Tonata’s power axe, karate kick offs in the shaping bay and surfboard design head butts – it’s a comedy.
After “The Outrider”
The Outrider is a 26min standalone short film but it is also the pilot for our series “Inside The Ride”.
Our dream is to make a comedy series populated with a whole universe of characters from the surfing psyche. It’s about time surfing films had a mockumentary makeover. These are films for surfers so we are here to ask you to help us make Episode 1… “The Outrider”
How you can help?
We are trying to raise £10,000 to make the film which we will shoot in Carlsbad, California on June 1, 2017.

About Two Eyes Film
Two Eyes is Rob Lockyear and Jeremy Joyce, childhood friends and lifelong surfing buddies.
We love surf films but they can get a little serious. Our surf movies are different.
We serve up the mystical icons of surfing folklore with a healthy dose of reality on the side.
If “The Office” and “Spinal Tap” made surf movies we wouldn’t have to.
We are the guys that brought you Freezing, #Vanlife and The Shaper.
