Becoming Westerly for Nowness



A few years ago Jamie told me about this crazy project he was involved in, documenting and writing a book about this surfing superstar pursuing a sex change in his later years. I wanted to be part of it right off the bat. I had a few good talks with Jamie and Alan, his co-director on the film side of it, but the pressures of keeping a business afloat knocked me out of contention to help edit the thing. A little while ago Jamie rang up, and asked if I wouldn't step back in for a quickie on his book's behalf, crafting a little trailer piece from bits of the documentary-in-progress. His editor was neck deep in finishing the feature, but was incredibly generous enough to let me comb through some footage and make a piece for Nowness.
Jamie's book is a must read, as much for anything surfy as for the interest and psychology of watching someone find themselves and all that entails.
I'm stoked I finally got to be part of this journey.

Every time we encounter failure and disappointments in life, we run to our friends first rather than to our parents maybe because we are more confident to tell everything to them.Our parent can also be our friend, but sometimes we distance ourselves to them because of fear which should not be in our mindset.
