Welcome to your new favourite surfer, Curt Harper. The 50-year old autism sufferer has attained the status of a local legend within the Souther Californian surfing community — which includes, of course, your other favourite surfer, Dane Reynolds, who also appears in the movie. It’s a lovely film, and has received nothing but glowing reviews since its release. You should watch it in its entirety.
“CURT is a short documentary about 50-year-old competitive surfer, Curt Harper. Diagnosed with autism as a child, Curt faced many challenges growing up, but one thing that came easy was his love for surfing. Over the past 21 years, Curt has become a beloved fixture in the Southern California surf scene, having played an unlikely, yet vital role in the growth and development of multiple generations of groms.”
