Like his brothers, California-based Keith Malloy is a master of all forms of wave riding. Whether it’s a gun, a thruster or a pair of swim fins, his approach demonstrates a lifelong commitment to the sea. After years of surfing in front of the lens, Malloy recently stepped behind the camera to direct the bodysurf film Come Hell or High Water and Fishpeople (Mountainfilm 2017), which tells the stories of a unique cast of characters who have dedicated their lives to the sea. Fishpeople was featured on Netflix in 2017, the same year he co-founded Bimarian Films. He co-directed Beyond Sunset (Mountainfilm 2022) alongside Jeff Johnson. From big-wave riding to bodysurfing to filmmaking, Malloy is at home in the ocean, in almost any discipline, in any corner of the globe. His films capture a deep reverence, curiosity and excitement for the world around us. He lives in California with his family.
