Should you be in Santa Barbara on January 27th, we recommend you check out the highly anticipated “Bustin’ Down The Door“, premiering at the city’s annual film festival. An action-docu-drama (we just made that up), the film focuses on the 1975 turmoil when Oz and South African surfers Mark Richards, Rabbit Bartholomew, and Shaun Tomson made their debut on the North Shore, crashing headlong into a culture that wasn’t ready for a revolution.
