Jack McCoy’s surf films have changed lives and captivated surfing audiences for decades.

However, while you may have seen all of Jack’s movies it’s unlikely that you have heard the intriguing stories behind them.

Craig Anderson's new film with Kai Neville will be shown at the Vivid festival in conjunction with Jack McCoy's Talking Story event.

“Last week Craig sprung it on me that he had recently finished a new film with Kai and that he was happy to show it at our VIVID talk. I said ‘yes’ and he said, ‘watch it first and make sure it’s OK’. ⁣I went straight to the link and 20 min later I sat there in shock. They say there is no second chance for a first impression. Well I gave it a 15 out of 10 as my new favourite surfing film. The surfing and Kai’s signature editing triggered flashbacks of Bunyip Dreaming. If ever there was a modern day Bunyip Dreaming, I believe this is it.   ⁣
