||Glass Love is a beautiful surfing film which shows all those who see it why surfing is the greatest sport of them all. Featured are some of the most important surfers of the last 30 years including Tom and Pat Curren, Wayne Lynch, Michael Peterson (MP), Rabbit Bartholomew, Skip Frye, Oscar Wright and Derek Hynd.
Andrew Kidman is an artist, musician and filmmaker. He embodies a time when surfing was all about getting back to nature and enjoying the ocean in a more spiritual sense rather than the hi-octane, corporate-sponsored world surfing has become.
"Over the last five years I have been involved in the creation of Glass Love.
Surfing in itself is a beautiful form; taking place in diverse locations with complex characters; I had ideas I wanted to articulate through motion and sound incorporating this. The process has been a lengthy one because to capture and present it with the meaning and feelings which surfers experience takes time. Also, the ideas I had changed with every wave that passed and with every person that I met and knew.
In the film I wanted to feature the generational link and love of surfing that gets passed down through families, in particular through the Curren and Purchase families. The sons are surfers and their fathers are surfer/shapers. It was nice to peek in on a small part of their relationships and how surfing makes them special. This, and the continued experimentation with board design were the highlights for me in making this film.
Overall in the making there were many stories, some made the cut - some did not. But rather than dissect them all here in words, I'll leave it to you to see the film.
I hope you enjoy it. We are all very blessed to be surfers. " -Andrew Kidman
