God Went Surfing with the Devil

ESPN Action Sports "This documentary by Alexander Klein explores the relationship between surfers on both sides of the Israel/Palestine conflict." By Jon Coen

'The New York Times has this way of putting art and film into the categories of either junk food or vegetables for the brain. I like that analogy. I'm not saying that quick edit action surf clips are exactly a deep fried chocolate bar, but "God Went Surfing with the Devil," is definitely the surf cinema's version of steamed broccoli.'

'Matix recently released the DVD as part of a collaborative project, complete with the book "Surfin' Gaza," also by Klein (published by 1980 Editions) as well as a limited edition Rico CT shoe and a Gaza Surf Club t-shirt.'
