    I've been in search of a video called The Performers for quite sometime. It's from the mid 80's. Anyone have a copy?

    I'll check with a couple video archive librarians I know for you tomorrow.

    In the meantime if you don't mind a tiny hijack, I'm looking for

    Sojourn

    Gathering

    both by Nathan Oldfield

    but find Cruzin1a's copy of The Performers first!

    *One good thing about being on the East Coast is that crackers have a TON of surf flicks here.

    Good luck brother.

    One of the first surf films I watched over and over again. Talking Heads and Marvin Foster tube riding if memory serves me. I guess that this must be the place...

    Wes Laine lives here in Va Beach and runs a surf camp; Roxy. I never see him surf the jetty as he lives on the side of the inlet

    You guys realize he's talking about the orig. "Performers" by McGillvery&Freeman, right?The featured surfer in the film was a guy named Bob Lemacher (sp, Lee-Mach-Er), s buddy of Greg's. i would love to see this film again. I doubt that it ever even reached VHS incarnation. Pretty much all CA small surf if I remember correctly. You can also see the beginnings of Greg's graphic design style (all borrowed from design titans of the time) in this film. I loved it.
