Our Judges say:
Guy with wooden leg becomes really good surfer and adopts alternative lifestyle. Chuffing hilarious and a really good character portrait. This guys a bad ass.
Paul Hodgson Music Judge
This man is obsessed you can see why. Cool film 💪
Ed Birch Director of Salt-Street productions
He has one leg, but several prosthetic legs. He surfs, he runs, and he changed his name to PegLeg.
Not like anything else in the line up. A must-see.
Inspired... A great, no-nonsense character focusing on ability rather than disability, and the sea.
