Bustin' Down The Door

Bustin' Down The Door

The Story

In 1975 a group of young Australian & South African surfers revolutionized their sport. Surfing was never to be the same again.

BUSTIN’ DOWN THE DOOR chronicles a tumultuous two-year period of competitive and cultural clashes in the mid-Seventies in surfing’s Mecca – Hawaii’s North Shore of Oahu – as a small crew of Australians and South Africans set out with attitude and determination to change the world of surfing.

Framed around the emerging careers of World Champions-to-be Wayne “Rabbit” Bartholomew, Shaun Tomson and Mark Richards, BUSTIN’ documents how these young men risked everything to become the best surfers in the world, and how their courage and vision began a cultural revolution that led to the birth of professional surfing and ultimately what has become today’s billion-dollar surf industry.

“…Delivered on all sorts of levels. Not just a great surf movie, but a GREAT movie.” Santa Barbara Independent

“This film isn’t just about surfing” Shaun Tomson
