“I suppose my brother would still be alive if only he wasn’t a goofyfoot.” Thus begins a young man’s odyssey to understand the meaning of his brother’s death from a surfing accident- an accident he blames himself for causing. He has not returned to the ocean since that fateful morning, but a discovery forces him to ponder if he will ever move on which, for him, translates to the question, “Will I ever surf again?” Goofyfoot explores the periphery of the surfing experience. It is a story of love and loss and how the mythology of surfing facilitates these two human emotions in stride, like the rise and fall of the tide.
Shot entirely on location in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties by director Chris Cashman (Club Frontera), and with vivid cinematography by Alexandre Lehmann (. Goofyfoot gives us an authentic vision of California’s windswept coast through a surfer’s eye. Goofyfoot transcends surfing itself, reminding us that life is short, and to put our best foot forward.
