As the sport of surfing continues to evolve, four west coast surfers embark on an expedition to explore fresh water, midwestern waves. Their journey will take them from Huntington Beach, CA to Boise, Missoula, and Jackson Hole. We'll surf with the local scene, explore the manmade and natural features, and meet the pioneers of a new generation of surfboards shaped for America's rivers.

The sport of river surfing is just making it to mainstream media, and there has not been a film, campaign, or series created yet to bring this sport to the general public. You have the opportunity to be the brand who is the authority on bringing this sport to the public.

This is a scalable project that can be shaped to fit within your brand and budget.
