This could turn into an interesting video/article, part of the High Line festival was a dinner meeting of “some of the most influential surf filmmakers and photographers” where they could eat and chat about surf media stuff.
I like checking the Surf Images blog, I nearly always see something interesting and it’s updated very often, but the captions are always short and often snarky or at least in-jokey, not that there’s anything wrong with that, it’s definitely more interesting to read than most news sources and at least it’s different.
Here’s a list of the attendees, I’ve tried to separate them into categories in case you want to check out their stuff and you want to focus on their main area:
I’m not sure if there’s a full length video or article to come out of this dinner meeting, or if it’s just a bit of pre festival PR, but I’d like to hear more.
P.S. I was searching for some info on Craig Stecyk and I found out he rides a surf mat, it’s something I’ve become more interested recently as I’ve just got my hands on one, as soon as I get a chance to ride it I’ll put up a post here, here’s a quote attributed to Craig Stecyk III:
Surf mats are the fly fishing of wave riding
