Rob Machado's Drifter To Be Webcast

(Warner Bros.) After receiving rave reviews in Japan, Hawaii and Australia, Rob Machado's definitive surf travel film, The Drifter, will return home for a domestic tour starting this week. The Drifter Tour, which begins November 4 in Encinitas and ends November 19 in Laguna Beach, will cover 11 venues along the West and East Coasts, along with a few private screenings in between. "It's been a fun ride so far," says Machado of his premiere tour abroad. "Maybe not quite as fun as some of the waves I rode in the film. But I've really enjoyed showing the last two years of my life to people."

For all those who can't attend or want to enjoy the movie from the comfort of their own laptop, there will be a live stream of the November 5 premiere at The Montalbán in Los Angeles. Like every tour venue, this will include an acoustic set with Machado and Jon Swift, the full-length feature film and a post-movie Q&A with Machado and Taylor Steele. The live webcast begins at 8 p.m. this Thursday. Log on to www.hurley.com/live to watch it all unfold.

The Drifter Tour also coincides with the November 3 launch of the special edition DVD, which includes a booklet and 18-minute bonus surf segment. Go to www.thedriftermovie.com or core surf shops to get your copy.

Directed by Taylor Steele and produced by Hurley and Warner Bros. Records, The Drifter starts in Bali, where Machado is looking for life's deeper meaning. That surf trip ends up taking him on a soul-searching journey where he eventually finds himself in Indonesia's outermost reaches with nothing but a surfboard, his journal and a tent. Machado's conclusion after scoring more perfect waves than any surfer could ever wish for? There's always a new dream to chase.
