The Screen Guide

Between 1972 and 1977 Michael Peterson was the best surfer in Australia. There is a fine line between madness and genius and the stories of MP's exploits are part of Australian surfing folklore. SEARCHING FOR MICHAEL PETERSON features interviews with World Champions, filmmakers and locals who watched the whole mad ride with classic footage of MP not seen for 30 years.
