Increments of Fear - Buzzy Trent

Surfing Heritage Foundation Screens Wake Unto Blue this Saturday
Dec 4, 7-9 pm
Presented with Anna Trent Moore (Anna is big wave legend Buzzy Trent's daughter and was caretaker and longtime friend of film maker Bud Browne) the movie takes the viewer to the birth of big wave surfing in the early 1950's through the short board evolution. It is a heart rendering journey that reminds us that some things can never be taught...only remembered.
Composed of historical footage taken by the late Bud Browne that has not been seen in years, the film is classic surfing at its best! Also on board for this special evening is a book signing by Anna Trent Moore of Increments of Fear. This is the story of the human endeavor for perfection, and the failures intertwined in the journey. Poignant, brutally honest, and provocative, it sheds insight into one of surfing's most intriguing and charismatic characters, Buzzy Trent. Photography is again provided by the late Bud Browne. Come early at 6:30 p.m. to see the Surfing Heritage Foundation’s archives. All ages are welcome - $10 admission. For tickets call: (949) 388-0310 ext: 0. Seating is limited so purchase your tickets in advance.
