    Best Short Surf Film: Distant Shores by Matt Katsolis
    Viewers Choice Award Presented by Jet Blue: The Rocks by Mark Temme

    We just wanted to thank everyone who came out and supported the 1st Annual New York Surf Film Festival. We are humbled by everyone's incredible response to the Festival. All the Filmmakers who flew into town were blown away by the NY Surfing Community and our waves! We should all be very proud and stoked to be NY Surfers. Thank you all for your support and Stoke! We hope to see everyone again next year.
    Thank you,

    The NYSFF Crew

  • funny, jet blue & DR sponsor it yet they don't allow boards on jet blue flights to the DR.

    that's some hipster level irony.

    * Please note: Oversized baggage will not be accepted on flights to/from the
    Dominican Republic.

    Jet Blue announced at the festival that boards fly free to PP through March '09. 

    Way to kill the good feelings with gratuitous negativity.

    Congrats to Mick Sowry, Matt Katsolis, Mark Temme and all the participants and thanks to Tyler, Mike, Morgan and Adam for all their incredible work on this.  I hope this becomes an annual event.

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    well, that makes it better. i was just miffed about the baggage policy. they wouldn't let me bring a board that was under 80" to DR so had to change my flight to PR.

    big ups on the film festival. the advancement of any art is a good thing.

    jet blue could suck my brajole! ;D
    It is kind of a conflict of interest with the campaign against discriminatory airline fees? No?
    Kinda like Lobbying?

    Plus I'm mad that I couldn't go >:(

    Religion is for people who are afraid to go to hell. Spirituality is for people who been to hell and don't want to go back.

  • I'd like to say Big Thanks to all the folks who worked so hard to put on an awesome event at a great venue! Big Thanks also to all the folks who came out to see "The Rocks".

    The great surf was a bonus and added depth to the whole experience. I took the writer/director of Musica Surfica, Mick Sowry for an early morning surf Sunday at LB and he was stoked on the waves and people there. It's kinda funny, I lent him a 6'4" I got from Pancho Sullivan (same one I'm on in my avatar) and someone crashed into him. There was a perfect 12" fin slice in the bottom of the board from that incident. I just laughed it off and made a comment about the benefits of surfing finless boards like in Musica Surfica. He'll remember some juice and power from his surf in NY.

    I'm also stoked I won 2 round trip tix to the DR with no charge for my board! Thanks again to all who helped make the NY Surf Film Festival a huge success.

    I was out at the same spot and got to chat with Mick Sowry a bit.  Wish I'd known you were out there too.
