New Hampshire: The Granite State. While known for its rocks and white mountains, New Hampshire's mere eighteen miles of coast supports a surprisingly vibrant surfing community - bound by their frozen stoke.

We are building a documentary to share the stories and passion of these incredible people.

Hurricane Irene with Mike and Michael

Over this past weekend, we had the pleasure of joining Mike Sidebottom and Michael Emery as they traveled to southern New England to surf pre-Irene swell and then back up to New Hampshire to enjoy the post-hurricane waves. Although we had a great time and as surfers, we live for this time of year, our thoughts go out to all those affected by Irene. We never wish for hurricanes to cause destruction or take lives. A great big thank you to all the response teams working around the clock to fix roads, restore power, and limit flooding.

Now, this is our longest video yet and it was a good test working through loads of footage. Although this is much more of a "surf video," it gives a taste as to how the documentary may look. We would love to hear what you all think as we are working through this. Thanks!

  1. Awesome ! The water footage is terrific especially considering you are just getting started. The surfing footage is great, but the editing of the surf footage with the accessory footage captures the emotions, the "stoke" and the feelings of what surfing is all about. ! You guys really capture the essence of the experience ! Keep it up !

  2. Thanks so much for the feedback! We certainly have a lot to work on with the water footage, but its a lot of fun and we're excited to get better. We are really trying to focus on how the surfing footage works with everything else and we appreciate you saying that. Thanks again.

  3. I love it! I love the footage from all the spots. Haha i paddled in those spots too they were big and good. I think you defiantly held a good prospective gave the viewer a taste of the experience. I just started following your page and i will be following much more closely now. I love seeing the HD of all the local spots.

  4. Thanks Ben! I'm glad you enjoyed it. There were plenty of fun waves that weekend, glad to hear you got some as well. Just checked out your blog and it looks great. I am excited to see your progress as you get some boards together. Thanks again for the feedback!
