You've Got To Be In It To Win It - And that includes the North Sea in December!

Well it took three months but I finally got my surf on...

surfing has been my one constant in life for the past twenty years, ever since I first watched Point Break in 1991.

A lot has happened in that time, lives have dramatically changed, the end of the world is nigh... But if we do make it through 2012, which coincidentaly I watched at the Regent cinema
Redcar exactly two years ago today,we have the remake Point Break to look forward to.

Times have changed. Now I'm a film maker too.
Why should I sit back and let the remake just happen?

This time I want to get involved.
Last Saturday I wrote to seven of the producers, writers and executive producers to wish then well and let them know I'm behind them all the way.

The echoes have not come back yet but I have great faith that they will: I feel that for the past two or three years that 'doors' have opening wide for me - and occasionally slamming shut in my face - but I like to think it's all part of a grand masterplan; at this point I'll just offer up thanks to all the people and situations that brought me to this point in life and say that I am looking forward to whatever the next full moon brings!

Here's a few pics from my photo album from when I visited the actual filming locations of Point Break last year - I told you I was a fan! And thanks to you Jen for recording moments from my holiday of a lifetime:

The next few are from saltburn today - it was cold but there were plenty of us out... And I bet we all have Point Break in our top five list of movies!
