||"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.
