Description


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.

Update!

Well, it's been a while since we posted here. Time for an update!

We finally finished our film, The Granite Stoke, in April! The premiere happened at the Music Hall in Portsmouth, NH, with an amazing crowd. It has already shown in a number of festivals, including the San Diego Surf Film Festival, Honolulu Surf Film Festival, and the High Line Festival of Surfing, and it has been officially selected for the New York City Independent Film Festival, New Hampshire Film Festival, and the London Surf Film Festival. We're still submitting to loads of festivals, and we're working on getting it screened somewhere in Boston!

Thank you all for your support! If you are interested in screening the film somewhere please contact us at thegranitestoke@gmail.com or call Dylan (603) 738-1469 or Ryan (603) 724-7149.

  1. Really beautiful work. The NH coastline is a really special place. I grew up in Fl, and my wife and I moved to NH when she did her grad school at UNH. We moved from there to the Caribbean, back to Fl (unfortunately). That being said, there are some special places that it takes getting to know, putting your time in, and exploring to reap the rewards. I don't want to be a wet blanket but have you guys noticed how much cold water is being marketed by corps in mags these days? Wetsuits being as good as they are, deep winter won't be so lovely once people figure it out. Keep the balance friends and you'll keep the vibes you like on the waves you love. If you do the work of discovery for others you make it too easy, and you run the risk of ending up just like Fl (but with much better waves). Be well.

    1. Thank you for your input Christian! The NH coastal community is extremely special and we are trying to toe a fine line of sharing their wonderful story without exploiting them. Cold water surfing is definitely hip right now and we are capitalizing on that in some ways to draw more attention to our film, but we do our best not to glorify cold water surfing and to show the real experience and why the winter is such a special time in New England. Through our film, we hope to encourage people to invest more in their own communities, not to move to someone else's. We are not trying to create a highlight reel of the best surf spots/waves in the area, we are trying to tell the story of this community. The people here have taught us so much about the value of community and respect and that is what we are trying to convey in our film.

      We do not always do the best job though and we appreciate hearing other people's opinions. Hopefully, together we can represent this community with the respect they deserve. Thank you
