In Episode 2, we visit with Zen Del Rio and Edem Elesh, Los Angeles-based surfers and artists, as they talk about their connection to Palos Verdes Cove. Reach deeper into the roots of surfing in California, as Zen, Edem, and friends of the Palos Verdes Surfing Club take on a big swell at "PV Cove" while offering personal experience and historical references that continue to fuel their stoke. We are also taken into each artist's studio to discover how surfing affects their creative process, including insights into the boards they enjoy riding and a bit of "local knowledge."
STOKED! is a new film series by Eric Minh Swenson, director of Mana, that celebrates the spirit and love for California's beaches and passion for its heralded surfing culture. The series keeps in the tradition of preserving the rich heritage of Southern California's beach lifestyle which continues to influence art and culture throughout the world.
STOKED! is an open invitation to all beach-going enthusiasts and surfers to participate at pre-scheduled events throughout the year and various locations along California's coastline. The series of films will be posted online as the continuing Take 1 Art Series by EMS as part of the film survey that documents the art world throughout California.
Continue to look for social media updates throughout the year.
