Surfrider Foundation’s mission is the protection and enjoyment of the world’s oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network. The Eastern Long Island Chapter has been a strong advocate of public access and environmental preservation along our shoreline from Montauk Point to Moriches Inlet for over 15 years. Staffed by a dedicated team of volunteers, the grass roots chapter works with every level of government on resolving many important coastal issues. In addition, dozens of beach cleanups, educational programs, and dune plantings have been done with local students and community members.
We were honored to be a sponsor of Surf Movie Night XVI and further our involvement with the wonderful Eastern Long Island Chapter. This event was particularly special to us given that we grew up attending all of the surf movie nights. We took great pride in making the t-shirts for the event since we still covet ours from years past.
Surf Movie Night XVI was hosted by Andy Brosnan, chair of The Eastern Long Island Chapter. The main feature film was "The Seawolf," an artistic piece of cinematography about winter surfing, created and directed by Ben Gulliver. The film follows eight surfers on a two-year journey to the farthest corners of the globe in search for clips. The night also featured local surf shorts.
Along with films, there was a courtyard exhibit highlighting chapter programs and initiatives and a raffle and silent auction.
This is a great family tradition and serves as the primary clean water fundraiser for the chapter and we were happy to finally have a bigger role in the night.
