The Life and Films of Alby Falzon

One of the very best surf film makers ever and a man of great wisdom and enlightenment.
As a teenager Morning of the Earth and especially Crystal Voyager had a profound impact on my life. Tracks magazine started by Alby, David Elfick and John Witzig was also very influentual on me through its early tabloid era - it was very much of it's time.

There is a new DVD out celebrating his life and films. Available here.





Just grin and bear the hyped-up channel intro at the beginning of this next vid. The doco's worth it.

Hi. I hope your new year is getting off to a great start. I really appreciate you reading my blog and the times you comment as well.
Sounds like things are going well for you and your art, and I couldn't be happier for you.

The Life and Films of Alby Falzon looks like a great film- might have to check it out.

Hi, great to see your interest in the Alby Falzon doco I've made. Just thought it would be great if you could send your readers to my website via this page, so that people can buy from me and support the filmmaker directly. Thanks,
