Surfing 50 States

Director: Jonno Durrant / Stefan Hunt.
Two young Australian surfer/filmmakers decide to travel to America and surf all fifty states. They find innovative and hilarious ways to surf in places like Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska, and demolish long-standing myths, not to mention surfboards, their old ice cream truck touring vehicle, and nearly themselves as well, as they journey across the country introducing surfing to astonished locals who have never seen a surfboard or surfers in their lives. In this enjoyable film for the whole family, their infectious enthusiasm and humor inspires folks of all ages and ethnicities to get out and explore the world in their own unique and fun way. The boys demonstrate that you can make your own fun anywhere you go, even surfing where there are no waves.
