Musica Surfica - where surfing and classical music meet

Musica Surfica is a documentary which involves a unique gathering of classical musicians and surfers, with a purpose to opening minds to new ideas by demonstrating the benefits of taking risks in their art. Shot on King Island in Southern Australia, the documentary follows one man’s creative journey, Richard Tognetti, leading violinist and Artistic Director of the Australian Chamber Orchestra, as he seeks new inspiration from traditional and classical music. He teams up with Derek Hynd, one of the world’s most influential surfers, who challenges him (and 2 time world champion, Tom Carroll) to ride an un-finned surfboard, which demands fresh thinking, or ancient methods, to keep control. Winner of Best Documentary at the New York Surf Film Festival, it is written and directed by Mick Sowry who also writes at To buy a copy visit the website here.
