About the Film:
Surfing 50 States
Directors: Jonno Durant and Stefan Hunt
USA (all of it), 2009, 62 mins.
Surfing 50 States documents two daredevil, fun-loving Aussie mates, Jonno and Stefan, who attempt to surf in all 50 states of the USA. This leads them to sliding down a 15-foot pile of potatoes in Idaho, getting towed by a cowboy and his horse in Texas, sliding a waterfall in Massachusetts and flying through a Wizard of Oz production in Kansas. They visit all 48 continental states in an unreliable ice-cream truck and fly to Alaska and Hawai’i for some of the best waves of the trip.
Shadows of the Same Sun (short)
Director: Thomas Brookins
USA, 2010, 34 mins.
This is the story of a surf community that has endured the economic and social turbulence of New York. The Borough of Queens has a unique surf culture with a rich history. This metropolis may not be the first place one thinks of when it comes to riding waves and aloha, but New York City has become a destination for many professional surf explorers. Official Selection: New York Surf Film Festival 2010.
