News: Surfing Film Catches Big Break At AlphaDogsCalifornia
The origins of surfing date as far back as the 18th Century where wooden surfboards that sometimes weighed as much as 150 pounds were used for big wave surfing. While methods of surfing have changed substantially since the early days, what hasn’t changed is the lure of finding that perfect wave, and there is no place quite like Mexico for a surfing adventure! In the new film from filmmaker Mark Kronemeyer titled Gone, audiences are taken on a journey from Baja to Oaxaca, to bone-dry deserts and tropical jungles on the search for the soul of surfing in Mexico. “I got the idea for the film traveling around Mexico and documenting our journey up and down the Pacific coast,” said Kronemeyer. “I hope audiences will want to travel and discover more of the real Mexico after watching Gone. http://www.gonefilm.tv/
