||Long Island native John Beattie was a lifelong surfer up until 2007 when he suffered a stroke. Beattie had to retire his surfboard. Instead, he picked up his camera and began to document his irrevocable love for surfing. From Long Beach in the west to Montauk on the Eastern tip of Long Island, Beattie re-visits the places he used to surf over his 48 years of surfing and sets out on a journey to recount some of his favorite surf spots, hence the film's title, A Hundred Miles to The End.
No surf film captures that Empire State spirit better than A Hundred Miles to The End. Every New Yorker who's made a name for him or herself over the last 50 years shows up in this emotionally riveting, artfully shot, elegantly edited, and even locally scored film. Thumping barrels, thick accents, and fierce homegrown pride make A Hundred Miles to The End a must-see.
