Filmmaker Nick Colbey grew up in Byron and went to school there before moving out into the world. Nick now returns for the premiere of his latest film Loco Loco, a 25-minute surf film.
Loco Loco is an Indonesian odyssey so crazy it had to be named twice.
‘This is a boatload of the planet’s most [sic] unique surfers as they tear their way through two separate archipelagos, set alight by the best back-to-back swells of the season’, says Colbey. ‘From secret outposts, to new hi-fi wave parks and one of Indonesia’s true gems at its absolute best, Loco Loco will leave your head spinning.’
The film stars Clay Marzo, Chippa Wilson, Matt Meola, Luke Hynd, Billy Kean and Mikey Wright, another local lad from Lennox Head.
The premiere will be at the Hotel Great Northern, Byron Bay on Friday.
