Directed by Craig Griffin, Uncharted Waters is a feature length documentary about legendary Australian surfer Wayne Lynch. It traces his upbringing in the seaside town of Lorne on Victoria’s south western coast and his turbulent experiences as a ‘conscientious objector’ on the run from conscription and the Vietnam War. Ultimately, it is about an extremely gifted individual with an intense connection to the Southern Ocean, whose approach to surfing has been a spiritual journey often putting him at odds with the surfing subculture and society in general.
Premiere tour from May to July 2013 in the U.S., Europe and Australia. Dates and locations coming soon at patagonia.com/surfblog.

Forgot to take close ups – Its fair to  say repairs will always show though I try to hide them as much as possible, the extra fibreglass and resin required to produce a strong, lasting repair will by its nature have move material than the surrounding “original” construction – hence the slightly darker colour.

Enjoy Rich 🙂
