“I feel like my entire body of work has been building towards this production,” Steele says. “This unique creative union with TGR and Garage Media came from our desire to do something in surfing that hasn't been done before. Utilizing the latest technology, traveling to the far corners of the globe with my favorite surfers, and presenting in film, photos, virtual reality, and print media. It’s pretty much my dream project.”

Steele, surfing’s most prolific and respected film director, began his career filming the young Kelly Slater and has been immortalizing surf culture for more than 25 years. Proximity is his first surf film in four years, and is poised to be his crowning achievement.

“Not only is Proximity the product of surfing’s greats,” says TGR’s CEO Todd Jones, “but it was produced using modern 4k and VR cameras that capture epic cinematography from land, sea, and air. It is shaping up to be the most eye-catching project I have had the opportunity to work on. TGR is truly proud to be involved.”

Surfing Donald Trump Discusses His Thoughts on Laird Hamilton

Tyler Allen does a pretty mean Trump impression and in this video from our friends at The Inertia he becomes a surfer "President Trump." He explains how he invented the hydrofoil and how he pushed Laird into his first wave. The impression rivals that of Alec Baldwin's SNL masterpiece and the surf nomenclature is spot on. It looks like this will become a regular series for The Inertia and I can't wait to see more.
