This clash between the two halves of Smith's surfing character makes him one of the most fascinating characters on a surfboard and perfect as the subject of new film Bending Colours, a production of the Red Bull Media House, realised by Kai Neville Studio and supported by O'Neill. Neville has rightly earned a reputation as a maker of a new kind of surf documentary, thanks to his openness to the current generation of freesurfers. His films, Modern Collective (2009), Lost Atlas(2011) and Dear Suburbia (2012), are not the high-fiving, moody-sunset surf films you're thinking of; they're dynamic and exciting, reaching surfing's outer edges, as well as its inner being. The Red Bulletin spoke to Neville, Smith and some of Smith's friends and peers to get a better handle on the film and its star.© 2014 Red Bull
