Cowell's And The New Millennium is a documentary surf movie that takes the viewer through the beginning of surfing in Santa Cruz with never before seen rare photos and film of the original 'beach boys' who began surfing Cowell's in the 1930's on paddleboards, to the present day with world renown surfer Ratboy getting barreled off the wharf to Hanging Ten out at the Pt - with world class surfers who live only to Hang Ten.
The movie begins with documenting the first surfing to take place in the continental United States, which occurred in1897 at the far East end of Cowell's Beach known as the Rivermouth. From there the movie moves to the 1930's and 40's with interviews of the original beachboys of Santa Cruz, including the only filmed interview with the late Buster Stewart.
Cowell's continues with an indept contrast between the 30's and the 'now'.
Being one of the premier longboard waves in the world, the Cowell's movie dissects the 'art of noseriding' and what longboarding is all about.
Four and a half years in the making the movie has opened film festivals in New York, Hollywood, and Maimi, and won a Best Documentary Award from the New York International Independent Film festival.
