“I wish that when they asked us: ‘What is surfing?’ I would have said it’s a spiritual activity,
and not just a sport, because that’s what put us on the wrong track…” ~ Nat Young
“The Riders, the boards, the places, the ruminations…
Litmus was easily the finest surf film of it’s decade.” ~ Scott Hulet, The Surfer’s Journal
