About the Event

Patagonia Presents The Yin and Yang of Gerry Lopez: The path to enlightenment begins at the world’s deadliest wave.

About this event

Gerry Lopez, AKA Mr. Pipeline, is one of surfing’s most enigmatic heroes—a Zen Buddhist on land who built his early career on aggressive surfing that left behind a trail of blood and tears. Patagonia Film’s “The Yin & Yang of Gerry Lopez”—directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Stacy Peralta—follows one of the most influential surfers and surfboard shapers of all time as he brings surfing to new frontiers while pursuing stillness of body and mind. Come ride the lightning.

All proceeds will be going to our local non-profit partner, Black Surf Club Santa Cruz who aim to tear down barriers that oftentimes keep our oceans segregated. By taking a strategic focus on both physical and spiritual wellness, they create a community of healing for our Black, Indigenous, and People of Color Community here in Santa Cruz. Black Surf Club empowers our Black community to reclaim their space in the ocean through surfing, spiritual wellness, water safety, and community.

Join us at 418 Project as we work to make Santa Cruz County a more inclusive place for all.
