What are you willing to fight for? Growing up on the North Shore of Oahu, surfing was Christopher Peterson’s life. He fought for his place in the sport, for family, and for friends. When his grandmother called and asked for help, he left the islands only to find tragedy. His grandmother died in a house fire that left this warrior alone and desolate — until he finds a river to surf in. Then he sees life for what it’s worth once again and the water breathes life back into his soul.
‘Crash’ Peterson as he once was called, used to grace the pages of ther world’s top surf mags during his time as one of the most prolific wave-catchers on the North Shore. But family came calling and he answered, and he is now making a new name for himself as one of most prolific wave-catchers on the river’s in Idaho. Filmmaker Skip Armstrong catches Peterson in the raw, letting emotion drip from his hands in tiny water droplets and in the quick and powerful moves that he undoubtedly learned in Hawaii years ago.
