Synopsis

Mickey Munoz has been called the  surfer's surfer," and is loved and respected among the cognoscenti for his contributions to surfing and the surfing life for the past 60 years as a surfer, a pioneer of Waimea Bay, a stuntman (stand-in for Gidget), a board shaper and designer, and as a sailor and boatbuilder (America's Cup). Mentored by the Malibu greats of the '40s, and an influence on generations of surfers since, Mickey weaves the story of a California waterman using his own life and that of his friends.
