Great to finally meet that little dot on the 60-foot waves - Greg Long. Super nice guy putting his courage toward great causes like Sustainable Surf. Love what he represents.

Yesterday was an awesome day for the Saltwater Buddha film. We screened the entire 60-min rough cut to our Exec Producer Urijah Faber (a UFC champ) and he didn't put us in a choke-hold. He loved it! Next stop, sound mixing, color correction, then film festivals!
Let us know where you'd like to see the film screen ...

I love how his Holiness keeps it straight-forward and simple. 
 
Instead of wasting millions of dollars on weapons we dare never use, the money should be put to more positive ends. And it’s no use waiting for our leaders to take action, we the people have to take action to show our disapproval of these instruments of war and violence. This is in our interest, because invariably when things go wrong it’s ordinary people who suffer.

Locals pray to Guido Schäffer, a priest-in-training who loved to catch waves.

So many hundreds of thousands have died fighting jerkface dictators for the right to free expression, I can't help feeling like we dishonor their sacrifice by pulling a film because of a jerkface dictator's threats.

Occupation
Jaimal Yogis is an author, journalist, and screenwriter. His first book, a best-selling coming-of-age memoir called Saltwater Buddha, was praised by The Times of London, Publishers Weekly, and selected as one of E!’s Best Summer Reads as well as one of Headbutler.com’s 100 Essentials of all time. It has been translated into Spanish, Italian, German, and Finnish. A feature film based on the book is in production. Jaimal’s second book, The Fear Project, is a personal and scientific investigation into fear and courage. It was featured in Oprah, The Wall Street Journal, NPR, Forbes, Outside, and many others, and is currently being used in a number of schools as a contemporary way of teaching neuroscience and psychology. Currently, Jaimal is finishing a feature screenplay with producers Jon Silk (Gangster Squad) and Brad Fischer (Zodiac, Shutter Island, Black Swan) and working on a new memoir for Harper Collins. He is also the writer / producer for a forthcoming documentary, The Most Fearless. A graduate of Columbia Journalism School, Jaimal’s reporting has been featured in ESPN Magazine, The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, San Francisco Magazine, AFAR, The Surfers Journal, Sunset Magazine, and dozens of others. He is the recipient of the 2005 Leslie Rachel Sanders Award for Social Justice Reporting, a 2007 Maggie Award for Best Magazine Feature, and two Scripps Howard reporting scholarships. In 2010, The Common Wealth Club voted him “The New Face of San Francisco Media” for his popular writing in San Francisco Magazine. He lives in San Francisco with his wife, Amy, and their two sons.
