“The dream was to go on a surf trip. We all wanted to go travel. Once you get a taste of it, you can’t get enough of it,” says renowned surfing photographer D.J. Struntz in the short documentary Fighting Water, from director Evan Vetter and Brooklyn-based cinematographer Matt Batchelor. Struntz lived his dream as a staff photographer for Surfing magazine for almost 15 years, traveling the world to shoot the world’s best surfers. He later came to realize his dream was a “selfish pursuit.”
