The big daddy legend of classic surf films has at one time or another touched us all. From his earliest offerings McCoy encouraged us to travel to far flung nations in search of perfection. The dream was surfing and we could all be a part of it. Throughout the late 80s and early 90s his tongue in cheek Billabong efforts could be quoted by groms and legends alike and his portfolio of documentary style profile films such as Sabotaj, The Occumentary and Blue horizon are definitive classics of surf film. His latest film, A Deeper Shade of Blue is his opus, a gift to surfing for aloha.
