Uncharted Waters is a documentary film starring Australia’s golden child of surfing and Patagonia ambassador, Wayne Lynch. This feature length documentary traces Lynch’s upbringing in Victoria’s southwestern coastal town of Lorne, and his turbulent experiences as he was on the run from conscription and the Vietnam War. The film features the intense connection to the Southern Ocean of a talented surfer whose spiritual journey put him at odds with the surfing subculture and society.
The new film will have three special screenings hosted by Patagonia Inc. (details below). Check out the trailer:
“Ever since I started surfing in the mid 70’s I was aware of Wayne Lynch,” notes director Craig Griffin. “His story is of a person who has always followed his own unique path. I hope the film is as enthralling as the experience of making it has been.”

“I have been asked many times to do a film on my life, because I did not choose a normal career path and journey,” notes Wayne Lynch. “I hope Uncharted Waters will resonate with others in a way that will inspire them to think differently and more clearly, about their own surfing and life.”
Screenings will be held June 20th in Santa Monica, CA at Broad Theatre, June 21st in Cardiff, CA at La Paloma Theatre and June 27th in New York, NY at Village East Cinema.
