My work has aired on ESPN, MTV, CBS, The NFL Network, The Weather Channel and Others. Content is King, when you have one of a kind footage it usually gets pretty far up the food chain. Over the years I have built a reputation for getting the goods and I get call backs from my Network Contacts when they need quality footage.
Doc Couture led the Eastern Surfing Association from 1972 until his death in 1989. He was a tireless advocate of the sport and the Mike Marsh Scholarship Program continues to this day. I was the first recipient of this scholarship and credit Doc for instilling a sense of giving and sharing my love of surfing with others through my media work.
The first real winter swell is a celebrated event.
I wanted to thank the many surf-journalists that have picked up the torch. It is awesome to see wall to wall coverage of the Outer Banks Surf Scene. To those of you lucky enough to participate, know that there are many of us that wish we could join you. Keep up the great work.
This clip was from one of those many classic winter swells of years gone by and features a solid crew of Outer Bankers.
I got the call from MTV to work on one of the first ever Reality TV Shows: “FEAR”. We set up over 74 hidden cameras in an abandoned prison. Contestants had to stay several nights in this haunted site. I worked on all aspects of the production.
The halo camera’s developed for this show have been used by countless reality shows.
Back before lawsuits put the “KIBOSH” on danger. When the new High speed lift was installed the pond was downsized and is no longer a safe landing. The fish seem happier about it.
This event began off season at Pennsylvania’s Seven Springs Resort in 1986 and continued until 2002. Today’s resort environment no longer allows private events that are this extreme. Pond Skims are very popular (and safer). Enjoy this look back on one big backwoods party.
Here is a behind the scenes look at a project I did for MTV:
My roots run deep with the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Over the years I have produced a wide variety of TV Programs and Segments all about the Outer Banks. If you like the Outer Banks you will like these videos:
This segment aired in an episode of Surfer Video Magazine on ESPN. I shot most of the footage and all of the interviews. Frontline Video and Film produced the series from 1987 to 1991.
This segment was produced for Hatteras Surf Feast and was a compilation of news and surf reports that aired on Beach TV during the late 80s. It has always been my goal to include news style information in all of my surfing segments. This makes for an educational and enjoyable piece.
Hurricane Earl paid a visit to Avalon Pier on Friday September 3rd, 2010. Some of his closest friends came out to see him.
There were over 100 spectators cheering on the brave crew of surfers riding this epic hurricane swell.
Classic Beach TV Footage featuring many of our favorite locals. Its cool to go back inside the Carolinian and the Atlantis.
Look for OBX Old School DVDs coming soon at a store near you.

North Carolina’s Outer Banks got great surf the week before Memorial Day. The local crew and some visiting pro’s “manhandle” a large 3 day swell. The surf was heavy and the wind stayed offshore for great conditions.
Check out the roots of Outer Banks Surfing with this look back to the surf scene its early days. Portions of this segment aired on ESPN’s “Hot Summer Nights” Programming in the 80’s.
This is a compilation of sessions and random encounters with some of my surfing friends. The footage spans from about 2001 to 2006.
North Carolina’s Outer Banks has legendary wind. These Kiteboarders are riding the same air that helped the Wright Brothers invent modern aviation. This area called Buxton Hole or Canadian Hole has an Eastern and Southern Shoreline.
The Flat Duo Jets played at Frat Parties when I attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the 80s. They visited the famous Mex-Econo Bar of Kill Devil Hills, NC in 1988.
The footage comes from BEACH TV(1987-1991) and Hatteras Surf Feast(1991).
Mex-Econo served hot dog chimichangos, spam nachos, and Ice Cold Cervaso.
