A new era

I just got home after being away working for the past month and have decided its time to hit the scanner. As I opened the bin I grabbed the first envelope that caught my eye. The year 1979. I was 14 years old and was frothing every month for the next issue of either surfing or surfer mag. I spent 2 hours tonight scanning about 20 images seeing surfing making a change from the previous images. It was still about style yet you start to see the impatience as now this new crew want to throw the board around. Im looking forward to entering this era as we start to see the evolution of the 80's.

Thanks North Shore Film Fest

Last night was our screening on the North Shore at Turtle Bay. It was an amazing turnout  as people packed the room to see the film. It was even more of an honor when Jock Sutherland, Duncan Campbell, Dan Merkel, Larry Bertlemann & Buttons all were there to take the stage and enjoy the moment. Bt there was a bigger surprise when Reno appeared to see the film and join the stage as well.

Yallin Up in Australia is official

Just got the official program where "Lost & Found" and good friend Pierce Kavanaugh of "Manufacturing Stoke" both have are films playing.

This just came out. Really interesting the things that are ending up in storage units. I still do not know for sure but still feel that these images came out of storage unit like this.,ca

Candy Moore.

Candy Moore attended the California Surf Festival and was able to screen the film for the first time. I just returned home from San Diego to receive these kind words.

When you touch others when making films, you know you have done your job as a film maker.

Last night was amazing and I can not begin to tell you how impressed I was by your film.  It was so well produced and captivating.  You must understand that even though I was married to Larry for 31 years….we did not talk shop and I have been relatively ignorant.  I have told Celeste all along that I know more today about  what  Larry  did than I did when he was alive.  Don’t get me wrong, we talked, but we had a very full life independent of what our careers demanded.  We loved our life together and just supported our independent adventures..  All the best with the film and please keep me posted.  I am not a facebook  follower as I have always been a private person. Celeste so makes up for my social ineptitude.  Blessings to all of your family.

Check out the Q&A from NYC with Dan Merkel & Aaron Chang

It was an honor to share the Q&A with these guys as we all took the stage to answer questions as well as enjoy the rest of the evening.

Showing of Trailer at Follow The Light Party

On Tuesday night in Huntington Beach Aaron Chang could not have said kinder words before introducing me and letting me share my story. It was the first time to let people hear it from me and it resonated thru the room. The Trailer was a success as everyone wanted more.

It's all about the journey.

Thank you so much Aaron, Candy & Celeste for the support
