2021 Florida Surf Film Festival

Tom Lochtefeld plays cards very close to his chest, unless of course, he knows only three of you will listen to this podcast.  The quality of information shared by this engineer of man-made waves in pools is worth a listen, if you’re interested in this form of joy.  Even if you’re not, and you’d like to argue in favor of nature-made surf, feel free to critique his life goals.  But if you find yourself sliding, gliding, and hopefully, slotting a few thanks to the brain cells on offer here in the not-to-distant future, don’t be surprised.
