We ran across this on youtube the other day, 49 Degrees is a surf documentary by Susanne Tabata available on VHS. Whats this you say VHS? Yeah its kinda old, It was the first in depth documentary to come out of Canada's surf scene im pretty sure and remember seeing it on CTV many, many years ago.
This thoughtful and nostalgic documentary from the past will give younger members of the BC surfing community some insights into the roots of local surf culture. Interviews with long established locals, competitive surfers and members of the BC surf industry give this documentary a well rounded perspective. Historic footage and photos open widows to the BC surf community's fondly remembered past.It tells our story by telling the stories of a few of Vancouver Island's surf families.
Featuring the likes of the Bruhwiler family ,the Oke family ,the Sadler family ,the Hudnell family ,Peter Devries ,Eric Frang ,Rivermouth Mike ,Donavon Ray ,Steve Richey,Dom Domic, Allister Fernie.
