‘The Church of the Open Sky’ is the latest feature length release from award winning independent Australian filmmaker Nathan Oldfield. ‘The Outrider’ tells the hilarious story of North Shore shaper Mike Strident, who shaped the most radical board ever ridden. Stridents’ single fin design changed the game and took him to the very pinnacle of professional wave riding. But then he was made irrelevant over night by the three-fin movement. But 40 years later, Californian free surfer Tommy Tonata discovers the last remaining ‘Outrider’ and tries to revive the design. Strident is forced back into the surfing limelight – there are talk show meltdowns, Karate fights in the shaping bay and some shit hot single-fin surfing action.
