Gerry Lopez – has there ever been a surfer more in synch with a wave, more stylish, more iconic, more zen? I’m not sure there has.

Stacy Peralta’s ‘The Yin & Yang of Gerry Lopez’ is a film that lifts the veil on one of surfing’s most enigmatic heroes.

Gerry built his early career on cutthroat, aggressive surfing. Gerry is as radical as he is Zen; he transcends categorization. He’s one of the most influential surfers and surfboard shapers of all time, an entrepreneur, a family man, a movie star, and a lifelong yogi who brought surfing to new frontiers. His influence on modern surfing is immeasurable, and his story is being told in full for the first time.
