A few months back All Things Malibu was lucky enough to have a Q&A with local Malibu filmmaker, Jack Murgatroyd about his new surf documentary, ‘Dirty Old Wedge’, a film about the most notorious body surfing wave in the world, The Wedge, in Newport Beach, California.  Until now, the only way to see the film was to attend one of the many film festivals where it was being shown. However, as of October 13th, the film has been released for sale to the public!

Since its premiere at the Newport Film Festival on April 22nd, 2016, the film has been receiving rave reviews from surf fans and movie critics alike.  The film has also collected some very high profile press from well known sources including Surfline, Vice, Sports Illustrated, Stab, The Inertia Surf Blog, and The Los Angeles Times.
