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.

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 or call Dylan (603) 738-1469 or Ryan (603) 724-7149.

SDSFF 2013

There was a hearty amount of New England Blood at this years San Diego Surf Film Festival. Dylan was able to attend and represent our short film, accompanied by many of our [frozen] stoked friends, whom we have been very fortunate to meet through this project.

We are honored to receive the Emerging Filmmakers award this year. We feel inspired and energized to finally get down and dirty with this feature, and finish it off right.

Many, many thanks to everyone who attended and supported the festival, and a special thanks to those who keep this fantastic event organized and running.

Hoots and Shakas!

If Sidebottom paddles south, you follow him. If he paddles north, you follow him. If he paddles west... well, you can't paddle very far west on this coast, but he hopped off the Slidebottom and got in his car. We'll miss him as he chases the sun cross-country, but the crew gave him an appropriate sendoff. 

Thank you, Mike, for everything. For opening your home to us, for delicious breakfasts, for trustworthy and thorough swell reads, for spreading serious stoke - waves or no waves. He's left New England for now, but we're fairly certain his blood will bring him back someday.

Blizzard Part 1

It was a truly incredible display of nature's power today.

The winds have switched and things could be quite fun tomorrow.

Some of the houses across from the Beach Plum were ripped off their supports and tossed slightly farther up the beach.
