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.’

Local loco surfer Mikey Wright from Lennox Head is one of a ‘boatload of the planet’s unique surfers’ who appear in Loco Loco.

The premiere will be at the Hotel Great Northern, Byron Bay on Friday.
