Spoons: A Santa Barbara Story synopsis
Spoons is a documentary about craft, heritage, and place. It chronicles the history of surfing from a little corner of California where perfectly groomed lines wrap around a cobblestone point to form Rincon, one of the best waves on earth. From the performance focused design of the Yater Spoon and George Greenough’s radical innovation, rose the world’s largest surfboard manufacturer and the modern surf industry as we know it. Their influence gave rise to the world’s best surfers and still resonates to this day. It’s A Santa Barbara Story.
