A Southern California Surfing Experience: photoshop effects were used in this still

Dave Schauber has filmed "SB2SD - A Southern California Surfing Experience," a back-to-basics surf movie, to be released July 1st, 2014.

The surfer/filmmaker from Santa Barbara is tired of arty adornments in surf movies. Dave Schauber promises no corporate budgets, no RED cams, no helicopters, no drones, no POV surf cameras, no water shots, and no artsy edits.

"I highly respect and appreciate the creativity of my colleagues in more fortunate positions but that just ain't my scene, so everyone will just have to settle for straight up ripping and fast driving music," anticipates Schauber.

"SB2SD - A Southern California Surfing Experience" will showcase world-class talents such as Trevor Gordon, Pat Gudauskas, Matt McCabe, Yadin Nicol, Bobby Martinez, Mick Fanning, Kolohe Andino, Mitch Crews, Dane Reynolds, Conner Coffin, Dylan Graves, and Dillon Perillo.

Schauber was born in Florida, and moved to California, in 1992. An early injury ended his pro surfing dream. He directed "The Ripple Effect" and "On a Dime".
