Surfing's Storytellers Night

What an honor to be included in a solid line-up of surf-filmmakers and surf-photographers for a hang-out session hosted by The High Line Festival of Surfing in Hollywood's, Haus of Strauss.  It is always a pleasure to see old friends and make new, trading war stories over good food and a few cold libations.  Cheers to Ari Lurie for all his hard work putting on the event and to Jamie Brisick for attempting to corral this group of "usually-behind-the-lens" misfits into the spot light.

Surf fans might not recognize all the faces in the above photo but you've surely seen the work of greats like, Art Brewer, C.R. Stecyk, Jeff Divine, Steve Pezman, Taylor Steele, Cyrus Sutton, Scott Soens, Tim McKenna, Luccia Giggli, Hayley Gordon, Jamie Brisick and Chris Burkhard.

On a somber note, the night was dedicated to the memory of our group's friend, Sonny Miller.  A filmmaker who lived life to the fullest, with a smile on his face.  He was definitely there in spirit - it was Miller time.
