“Minds in the Water”, directed/produced by Justin 
Krumb and executive-produced by Jonny Vasic, is a 
feature-length documentary following the quest of 
professional surfer Dave Rastovich and his 
friends to protect dolphins, whales and the 
oceans they all share. Through Dave's journey­a 
five-year adventure spanning the globe from 
Australia to the Galapagos, Tonga, California, 
Alaska and Japan­we see one person’s 
transformation from observer to activist in his 
quest to help protect the ocean and its inhabitants.

Through this exciting and often dangerous 
journey, we see first hand how Dave’s journey has 
blossomed into a movement of like minds. The film 
captures a key moment in Dave’s life as he 
realizes he must make it his personal mission to 
help stop the worldwide commercial slaughter of 
dolphins and whales. While unsure at first, Dave 
quickly finds his activist sea legs and helps 
build a core team of filmmakers, journalists, 
musicians, eco-pirates, celebrity surfers and 
even a professional mermaid to help spread the message.

“As ocean people, it is our privilege to be the 
custodians of our coastlines,” says 
Rastovich.”The film documents our attempt at 
fulfilling that role as we traveled to surfing 
locations around the world. Cetaceans are the 
ultimate surfers. They are our ocean kin and it 
is our role to do what we can to protect their well being."
