Ask any surfer what their favorite book is and Barbarian Days will jump out as one of the clear leaders. This tale of travel, love, adventure, and surfing will talk you around the world with William Finnegan as he comes of age. At The Salt Sirens HQ, our copy of the book has been handed from person to person over the past few years and its pages are both well-worn and well-loved.
Now, fans of the book can enjoy William Finnegan – Barbarian Days, a short film that originally premiered at Byron Bay Film Festival in 2017. US surfing champion Rusty Miller is the feature surfer and the story is narrated by William Finnegan himself. Darius Devas of Being Films is the director.
