Dave Rastovich isn't in the public eye as much as he once was. He's always been a little different; always beat his own drum and marched in his own way. That's part of what makes him such a wonderful surfer, isn't it? He lives in a similar way as he surfs, or maybe it's the other way around.
Here & Now, if you remember, was a fantastic idea for a surfing film. As the trailer said, "the average wave lasts six seconds. The rest of the day is spent getting there." The film, shot entirely on May 2 of 2011 by a global network of filmers and surfers, featured anyone who's everyone, from Rasta to Steph to Kelly and more.
Rasta had a huge influence on Taylor Steele's Here & Now. "His playing with the electric moog instrument provided the foundation for Mt. Warning's opening track, cooked up just for this film and later used on his album," Steele wrote. "Then Dave and Lauren's day unfolds as a surfing love story; full morning of the earth vibes with a playful love dance in the wave at dusk."
