A Fly in the Champagne

There has been a lot of hype recently about the trip that Transworld Surf organized for Kelly and Andy in the Mentawais. Not only is Transworld featuring the trip in next month’s mag, but looks like they’ve also made a movie out of it, in conjunction with Irons Brother’s Productions.

This should be a pretty awesome flick. Two of the world’s best surfers who’ve traded blows for years now(both on and off the tour), giving us an in-depth look at the rivalry from their own perspectives. Plus, with those two surfing some of the most epic waves in world, I’m sure the surfing will be pretty ok too.

If only Transworld could get them to trade blows in UFC bout- now that would be exciting. The movie is coming out March 15th, 2009. Check out the trailer.
