“In the Search of Deaf Surfers” Vlog transcript

Hi! Don’t you love surfing? I mean the real thing like riding on the waves like you see out there. I have to tell you, I learned surfing about 20 years ago and over these years I always have loved it. I saw some Deaf friends out there going surfing. So naturally I joined the growing group of Deaf Surfers. When the internet came into the picture, the group of Deaf Surfers grew really huge. Now I’m asking myself why don’t I make a film that will document Deaf Surf History? Hmm, yea I ought to do that!

After thinking about the idea, yea I’m going do it! I’ve decided on the date, August 7th through August 21st, starting in Bay Area and travelling southbound towards San Diego in the state of California. What will I be doing? I want to meet you Deaf Surfers, I want to interview you and shoot a video of you surfing. Accumulated footage may be put in the film. Also I would love it if you Deaf Surfers who used to surf back in 1950’s have old films, pictures, trophies, etc… Yes, I would like to interview you too and even if you no longer live in California but you used to, it’s not a problem. Come on! Let’s go surfing!

You Deaf Surfers really want to help me make history? My goal is to meet you between August 7th and August 21st. Please email me to let me know by July 29th or before so that we can arrange a time to meet. The email address is Let’s make history together!
