A Pleasant Surprise

"A Pleasant Surprise" offers an honest look at the talents of a select group of surfers who live in a truly special part of the United States.

Almost three years in the making, this film documents a world of contrast as daily changes in weather and waves prove to be all part of a larger picture; thumping beach breaks, cold water, and quick tropical storms are just a fraction of what you will find.

Brought to you in Super 16mm, A Pleasant Surprise allows for the full beauty of this region and its surfers to be realized.

"A Pleasant Surprise" features the music of Yeasayer, Moondoggies, The Rubies, Here We Go Magic, The Chicago Underground Quartet, and original music from Brian Parnagian and Las Flores Project.
