The 2017 Bud Browne Surf Film Award was presented in January 2017 to Shorebreak: The Clark Little Story
at the Waimea Ocean Film Festival in Hawaii.
Anna Trent Moore, curator of the Bud Browne Film Archives, noted in presenting the award: It is with great pride that the Bud Browne Film Archives presents the Bud Browne Surf Film Award at the 2017 Waimea Ocean Film Festival. The line up of this year’s surf films were extraordinary.
After careful consideration, the film we felt mirrors most of what this year’s award stands for-inspiration, innovation, and a leap of faith-is the film,
Shorebreak: The Clark Little Story.
Shorebreak: The Clark Little Story, represents all that Bud Browne, father of the surf film genre, stood for and resonated deeply with us. Our congratulations and heartfelt mahalo for sharing such an inspirational story!
