This short film series ‘Catching Waves’ was filmed in the Dominican Republic. We traveled with a small group of surfers and musicians and enjoyed 5 Days surfing, playing music and getting to know some of the locals.
Featured Surfers & Musicians: Asher Nolan, Cody Thompson, Eric Brigmond, Pat Hall, Michael Powell, Evan Thompson, Pedro Fernandez, Brendan Buckley and more
Part 1: Travel Day
Lets Go! The crew (Asher Nolan, Eric & Cat Brigmond, Luke Thorpe & Cody Thompson) joins up for a trip to Zap Stix Surf House in the Dominican Republic to meet up with Pat Hall and Zappy himself. The adventure begins…
Part 2: No Breaks
Surfing and Music… thats the formula for day 1. Asher Nolan as himself in the lineup, Cody & Eric on the keys, Pat Hall singing his heart out , a Bar B Q with friends… and a few Presidentes. Nonstop good times… no breaks.
Part 3: Go Before You Know
We got on the road early… the waves were not perfect but by the end of the day found some chunky sections. When everybody’s got the right attitude the good times roll.
Part 4: Rolling Stones
Day 3 we welcomed Michael Powell into Zaps Surf House. Waves deliver with a warble for his first session with Asher and Cody.. Eric and Pat deliver with a warble at Ohnos. More friends more good times! Filmed & Edited by Luke Thorpe
Part 5: Groms
Some more guests show up at the house and we get a clean afternoon of some fun surf! Then the crew heads down to Ohnos for a jam. More good times in DR! filmed& Edited by Luke Thorpe
Part 6: Livin’ The Dream
It was only a five day trip but the experience will last a lifetime! While the waves were never perfect the vibe was just right. We hope you enjoyed the adventure and look forward to sharing the next one! Filmed & Edited by Luke thorpe
