WOODSHED FILMS/T.ADLER BOOKS

The Plight of the Torpedo People

Introduction and photographs by Keith Malloy. Foreword by Jeff Johnson. Text by Dave Parmenter, Bruce Jenkins, Mark Cunningham, John Clark, Judith Sheridan.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>The Plight of the Torpedo People</I>.The Plight of the Torpedo People is a collection of bodysurfing photographs, frame grabs and personal essays documenting the making of Keith Malloy’s first film, Come Hell or High Water--the first feature-length film to be made about the sport of bodysurfing--between May 2009 and August 2011. A winner of Best Film and Best Cinematography awards on the festival circuit, Come Hell or High Water explores the history and development of bodysurfing alongside the purity of experience that is riding a wave, taking a unique look at the culture and beauty of the sport, while capturing the stories and locations of those who belong to its community. The film’s unanticipated popularity may well reflect the less-is-more, environmentally aware consciousness of our times; as the simplest of all ocean sports, bodysurfing requires little more than swim fins and some waves. The Plight of the Torpedo People is a collaborative work by the best bodysurfers of today, captured doing what they do best by some of the world’s best surf cinematographers and photographers. With 69 photographs in color, the book includes an introduction by Keith Malloy.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

PDN

Conor Risch

Anyone who has paddled out into the ocean to bodysurf probably knows the feeling of realizing you are about to get pummeled. I first had that feeling in Laguna Beach, California, during a storm surf, when a wave grabbed hold of my swim fins and bent my body with such force that one of my heels hit me in the back of my head. Fortunately I was young and pliant then, and I escaped scared and humbled but otherwise unscathed. I'm reminded of that moment looking throught the images in The Plight of the Torpedo People, a book of photos that are exhilarating in their depiction of far superior bodysurfers than I. The book was created as a companion for the documentary film Come Hell or Hight Water by Keith Malloy, which has received critical acclaim and film festival awards. The majority of the images in the book were made by surf photographer Chris Burkard, with additional images and frame grabs contributed by Malloy and other cast and crew members.
