“I would hope the viewers could think a little bit about what it is for them that represents a fulfilling life and pursuing it… recklessly,” said founder of The Inertia, Zach Weisberg, also the producer of a new documentary film about big wave surfer, Greg Long.
The Inertia presents, “Sine Qua Non – The Psychology of Big Wave Surfing.” Now we go behind-the-scenes.
“You better not fu#@king fall,” Greg Long said while reflecting on the huge day in 2008 at Cortes Bank, “because this could be the wave that makes you disappear forever.” The 24-minute short film directed by Richard Yelland of Curtis Birch Inc. and presented by The Inertia is called, Sine Qua Non. Watch this exclusive interview with the film’s producer, Zach Weisberg, Editor of TheInertia.com, as we go behind-the-scenes of the making of this incredible big wave documentary.
Sine Qua Non gives breathtaking insight into the psyche of big wave surfing through the eyes of one of the world’s most respected big waves riders. The San Clemente, California, native takes the common surfer to places they have never been before by sharing near death experiences from Cortes Bank and Mavericks. He reflects on how fragile life is and that every moment lived is a blessing. The first of a documentary series, The Inertia premiered the film to a packed crowd in October 2012 at The Boardroom International Surfboard Show in San Diego, California with great response and acclaim.
