This film was born in New York. I was born in New York. So, to me it was necessary to have a solid NY section to show my love for the Empire State. We started filming this project last year in Montauk. We had surf, but it was only visible in between the fog banks. Made for some cool shots, but not exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to show NY the way I saw it growing up. The days I remember of my Dad pulling into stand up tubes only yards off the beach on Central Long Island. I was just a little kid and remember it so clear. Today, was the day that I imagined. The day we had been waiting for.
