On July 31, big-wave legends Peter Cole, Kimo Hollinger, Jock Sutherland, and Randy Rarick took the Doris Duke Theatre stage to pay tribute to their late friend Ricky Grigg with fabulous stories and reminiscences, as part of the Honolulu Film Festival closing-night program.

It was one of the most entertaining, insightful, and moving panel discussions ever held on surfing.

Our unofficial festival documentarian Kyle Metcalf captured the whole thing on film. If you weren’t able to attend, thanks to Kyle, you can experience this inimitable evening on youtube. Mahalo nui Kyle!
