    FILM RENTAL: Everyone who donates any amount to the Surf Berlin Kickstarter fundraiser will get a private online stream of the film in Super VHS quality. We figure that if the fundraiser is a success, then ALL "Kickstarter backers," no matter the amount pledged, should get to see what they helped make possible. The truth is: if we don't reach our $40,000 goal, Kickstarter won't give us any of the money, making it impossible for us to finish the film, and the footage will most likely be forgotten about on some old hard drive that some people from the year 3030 will discover hidden under the floorboards of their futuristic Berlin apartment, only to learn that: Germany ONCE had surf, and not just any surf, but a perfect wave, that until some crazy artist from Santa Cruz, California, dedicated his life to trying to catch, had never been documented. As exciting as it might be for these future people, thanks from the bottom of our hearts for not letting THAT happen, and lets ALL enjoy this film soon!
