It's been a few days as I was out with my camera in Tahoe. I just got home and grabbed sheet #1159 and scanned this image which is a classic skate shot. We are also getting ready for 2 last festivals in the SF area.

Just wanted to say THANKS to Gerry for writing the great story about the photo yesterday. His words were unique as he told us in his words about the PIPE. Tonight "Lost & Found" has one more screening in Hawaii at the Doris Duke Theatre. I spoke with Randy Rarrick and he is going tonight to check it out. Here is a photo of Hakman in the shaping room checking out his new board.

Sometimes I sit down and I begin to write but never quite know how to express myself. So tonight I grabbed the dog and escaped to nature. As the wind quietly blew I could see what I needed to say as it cleared the air.



SURFING. What is it? It gives us so much. It allows us to share and express ourselves with authority allowing us to be seeing in way we are not seen on shore. These are the things that make me realize how important it is to SHARE. As I posted a small thing about Rory Russell shaping boards and selling history I realized how important it is. Yes there were many others who passed this STOKE along and have moved on from this life. But its the ones who remain that we must listen to their stories and support them. Life is fast and sometimes is taken from us to early. So lets support history before the concrete dries on the walk of fame.

thanks to Patagonia

Just wanted to give a shout out to Patagonia for the great support!

thanks for the good review

I found the film to be more than entertaining. As a surfer (former, or part-time), learning how Gerry Lopez and Aaron Chang got their respective starts was amazing. The collection of old footage provided more than enough visual stimulation to break up the dialogue. Each interview is filled with smiles and tales of the good ole days. There’s also a ton of history packed into these individual stories. The tearjerker comes at the end when we learn about Larry Moore. This film is definitely recommended for anyone with a vested interest in surf culture and its origins, but also for anyone who has a love or passion for any action sport in general.

Listen to this morning's interview

Did a live interview in Australia this morning as the film generates fans at the Yallingup Film Fest.

thanks XDANCE

Had the opportunity to share the film as well as spend time talking to the Legendary Jack Mccoy. Seeing Jack speak about being passionate about making films and to always tell a good story made me feel like I did my job.

While posting this image today I thought I wonder what it would have looked like in color. So while going into photoshop here is an example of what that day might have been like. What do you think?

Color?

Thanks to SURFER MAGAZINE

I met Brendon Thomas a few months ago when he contacted me about an interview on my story. I just wanted to say thanks to all the people involved in making this part of the Surfer Dec Issue. It has been a labor of love project over many years and I know I did the right thing to make this film as it has touched many who have seen it.

also thanks to Erin Kunkel photographer who came out to my house to shoot me.

Kind words from Carmel

Ok you people in the industry.... keep your eyes open for Director & Editor DOUG WALKER. Mark my words!! And you should all work with him!!  I saw a Second film of his today, another great one. When does a filmmaker have TWO films in One Festival?? Super super Talented. InSightful, Sensitive, Multi-Faceted. He has a very Special Touch. You heard it here first!








‎Was floored by the Sensitivity and Craftsmanship of the first film that she saw today at the Carmel Art + Film Festival. A story-Upon-a-story, first of Serendipity in the Accidental Discovery at the Pasadena Flea Market of a box containing 30,000 images. Then of the Quest to track down, identify, and interview many of the still-living Photographers and Surfers whose History was Held Hidden for Decades in that treasure box. Threaded throughout w incredible archival film footage & still photographs, the stories they tell of that unique time in American Cultural History weave a rich and resonant tapestry. Lost and Found is Masterful Storytelling, full of Nuance and Luminous Spirit. When this special film finds a Distributor, GO SEE IT.

Hangin with Film Maker Pierce Kavanagh from "Manufacturing Stoke"

Met Pierce at the Film Makers party tonight in NYC sponsored by Surfing Magazine & Nike. His film has soul like "Lost & Found" and we hit it off. "Manufacturing Stoke" screens tomorrow night. check it out!!

respect.
