When Jack Coleman was looking to put together his cast of surfers for his movie The Zone, he had his eye on one relatively unknown surfer out of Australia named Bryce Young. Bryce was still flying under the radar at the time (around 2014). One thing was for sure though, Jack knew "this kid had it all, extreme talent, uncanny balance, a willingness to charge, and an iconic bloodline lineage."
It wasn't until the beginning of 2016, in Bryce's home turf region of Australia that him and Jack started shooting. "For me, it was a dream come true to be able to shoot such an amazing surfer in his element slashing open faces on his asymmetrical boards," says Jack. "The kid just so happens to be what a filmmaker calls, “a clip machine”. Just about every wave is a keeper; I was so impressed with how technical and fast he was he literally blew my mind wide open."
Bryce Young is eclectic. His board riding, board selection, and unmatched style is incredibly fun to watch. Check out his full part in The Zone below.
