The goal of the project is simply PROMOTE and ELAVATE the surf culture that exist along the east coast as it deserves. The second goal is to produce enough material for a short film and book. The short film once completed will be submitted to the Florida Film Festival as well as a number of other surf film festivals held around the country. The book will record the journey through pictures, a photographic journal of the surfers, their stories and to all those for whom we shall meet along the way. The true and ultimate goal of this project is to produce a full length film on the history of east coast surfing from its beginnings to the present, documenting the surfers and the changes surfing has undergone over the years.

We welcome all surfers (men & women), shapers, surf shop owners and ask that the surfing community at large join us as well. It is my aspiration to make this as much as possible a community project with the surfing community being the star. The project will take the support and corporation of you, so come out Saturday 8 of April 2017 at King Neptune, 11 N. Lumina Ave., Wrightsville Beach, NC, 28480, New Hanover County’s oldest restaurant and a Wrightsville Beach landmark.

“King Neptune Restaurant has seen many changes around Wrightsville Beach, NC over the last 70 years, but one thing that has remained consistent is the welcoming spirit of this family owned, iconic eatery and neighborhood bar. Recent renovations have expanded the dining room and bar, while the cozy Pirate Bar remains much as it has been for years. Serving breakfast lunch and dinner 7 day s a week, The Neptune is certainly King of the local dining scene.”
