A funny note from Rusty Surfboards team rider, John Maher:
Walking through the epicenter of Kuta, Bali, I saw myself on the cover of a DVD at a corner store. Then I saw it again, and again — so funny.
Turns out that all of the DVD vendors in Indonesia have it for sale. We were laughing our asses off with the Indos.
Pretty classic bootleg, because I am not a goofy-footer like the reversed picture on the cover, and I’m pretty sure the film is not “an important surfing and political statement” like the cover says!
Still haven’t watched the movie yet.
A couple days later I saw myself on a big poster outside of a restaurant on one of the busiest streets in crazy Kuta Beach. Don’t know where these guys are getting my photos, or why they are using them, but thought it was pretty funny.
