Directed by: Takuji Masuda | Documentary Feature | 86 min | English | US PremiereAbout the Film
The inspiration for the Topper Burks character in the surf classic LORDS OF DOGTOWN, Bunker Spreckels was the wildly rich heir to a sugar empire—and Clark Gable’s stepson—who secured a spot in surfing legend with his innovative board design and excessive playboy lifestyle in the '60s and '70s. Before his untimely death on Oahu in 1977 (at age 27), Bunker gave an in-depth, no-holds-barred interview to C.R. Stecyk, around which this uninhibited documentary is centered. A whirlwind of addiction, sex, and global jetsetting, surf champion Takuji Masuda’s BUNKER77 introduces the man Laird Hamilton calls "one of the all-time originals of all time."
