The final project for my Cinematography class required us to tell a story without dialogue, all visuals. I wanted to capture the creative process and beauty that comes with shaping a surfboard. I was inspired by one of my favorite shorts "Hoopdie" by Christy Stevens. Robert Kamp, owner of Ultralite Surfboards, allowed me to come and film at his shop in Virginia Beach.
Virginia Beach local and good friend of mine, Trevor Fraser, jumped at the idea of being in his first surf flick. The surf footage was taken on a single evening at Croatan Beach, VB.
