||The film was completely grassroots. It originally premiered June of 2017. That summer, it screened all over Long Island from Montauk to NYC benefiting charities along the way including Surfrider NYC, A Walk on Water, Save The Great South Bay and Run for Ryan Oehl. After that summer, the film made its way onto the surf film festival scene. It was recognized at festivals around the globe in locations like Santa Cruz CA., Noosa Australia, Portugal, London, and the Save The Waves Film Festival Tour and a recent DIY screening in Popoyo Nicaragua. For me, it was a really cool experience meeting people with strikingly similar passions i.e surfing and filmmaking. Also getting the chance to show and talk to people about what it's like surfing in NY was eye opening. I thought that in the current digital age everyone must know that here in NY we get better waves in the winter, and that we see the extremes of each season. A lot of people still had no idea it even snowed here let alone that we go surfing when it does.
