It’s been 20 years since Taylor Steele’s ground-breaking surf film Momentum first starting making waves amongst the surfing fraternity, offering precious glimpses of big waves and far-flung places. An entire generation of grommets may have grown up since the film’s release, yet Momentum remains a classic in the surf community.
And to celebrate this 20-year mark, Taylor and the boys are putting on a little celebration with support from The Grains and photo exhibitions as well as with the film itself; touring some of Australia’s most iconic beaches.
“I can’t believe it’s been 20 years from the Momentum release. I remember doing a premiere with Sprung Monkey for the movie way back then. So it makes perfect sense to show the original version with Sprung now. Watching the movie again with a live audience will be exciting for me. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen it. More importantly, I can’t wait to watch Sprung play!” Taylor said.
