“Generations, The Movie” Celebrates The Past, Present and Future of Surfing

From Young Guns To Today's Top Pros to Hall of Fame Legends - This Film Has It All

St. Jean de Luz, France: Three generations, one film and countless adventures around the world “Generations, The Movie” is Quiksilver’s latest surf feature. The movie features Quiksilver’s top WSL stars and freesurfers including Mikey Wright, Jeremy Flores, Jesse Mendes, Mikey February, Kael Walsh, Zeke Lau, Connor O’Leary, Kanoa Igarashi, Koa Rothman, Leonardo Fioravanti and more.

Meanwhile a legends section highlights some of the brand’s longtime riders that are undisputed icons in the sport including 4 x World Champion Mark Richards and 2 x World Champion Tom Carroll among others. Rounding out the generations concept, there’s a glimpse into the exciting future with Kade Matson, Marco Mignot, Sebastian Williams, Rio Waida and more in the Young Guns part.

“Quiksilver has a long history dating back to 1984 of showing the best surfers in the world riding the most impressive waves,” says Quiksilver General Manager Garry Wall. The brand’s first video, “Performers,” marked a new chapter in surf movies as it was the first to be released direct to home video on VHS.

“The way we share content has changed, but the idea with a surf film is the same: showcase the best in the world and inspire others to get out and surf. Funny enough, some of the riders in that first film are still ripping and have waves in the legends section.”

Catch “Generations, the Movie”on tour throughout the East and West Coasts this summer.
