Follow a lifelong Surfer as he rediscovers surfing as is exists today on Long Island, New York. From Long Beach to Montauk.

I've surfed from the mid 1960's until 2007 when I had a stroke. After two years healing and lots of Physical and Occupational Therapy, I improved enough to begin driving and resuming some of the activities of regular my life. However residual weakness in my right arm and leg have left me unable to Surf anymore.

Surfing has been such a big part of my life that I couldn't just leave it behind. So as soon my doctor gave me the go ahead to drive, I gathered my video equipment and headed to the beach. As a way to remain connected to the sport I love so much I began filming others Surfing. I decided that I wanted to give something back to the Long Island Surfing community for all the good times and all the people I met and places I've been over the years.

So I began a journey to visit as many of the spots I used to regularly surf at as I could and rediscover the people and the community that exits there today. I began Filming and interviewing the Surfers that I met along the way. Starting in Long Beach in the West and working my way East to Montauk. I call the film, A Hundred Miles to The End.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

At present I am in the final stages of editing. The film is slated to be premiered during the Smash New York Film Festival in July and in also will be showing in select Movie Theaters on Long Island.

I also plan to release DVD, Blue Ray and Digital download formats after the Theater Premiers. In order to have DVD's, Blue Ray discs, Digital downloads and other distribution methods available I will need more money than I have available in my personal savings for this project.

I estimate that I'll probably need upwards of $7,000 or more to have DVDs, Blue Rays, posters and other promotional materials manufactured. I will also need to go through several other processes in order to have digital downloads available. I'm setting a goal of $5,000 and hoping that your generosity and caring about this project will help me meet and even exceed this goal.

I want to thank everyone who has encouraged me during the last three years and who have helped me accomplish this project. I hope to see you all during the screenings of A Hundred Miles to The End.
