“Three years in the making, Luke Thorpe (filmmaker and director) captured the lives and the moves of some of the greatest surfers of today. This epic journey is hosted by Ryan Egan starting on New York’s frozen beaches. Traveling on to Hawaii and Australia, you will see greats like Jason Shibata, Damien Wills, Kaupena Miranda, and many more (see below for a full line-up). As you move through the film you will see him develop the skills to battle any beach and become great in his own right.
Join Ryan and the rest of this all star cast of surfers through this wild ride of monumental design as he progresses over the course of this film the way all New York surfers must – against all odds no matter the weather, the cost,” -Online Review

The original version of the film ‘Eastside Theory’ recently ran out of stock on dvd. Without a high volume of sales we thought it would be better for our small company and for the environment to release the film as a digital download.. hence the Green Edition.  When digging up the old files Luke Thorpe (film-maker) noticed a new version of the film he started to edit in 2009.  This new version is a trimmed down version of ‘Eastside Theory’ that adheres much better to the original story.  So after another week or so grooming out the 2009 cut.. here is Eastside Theory Green for 2012.  Enjoy
