Shore, the first of the five-part video series tells the story of Tyler Sankey, 21-year-old college student at Monmouth University. Tyler has a unique perspective on life, a reason why we picked him as the first narrator to to take you through this journey. 

Nomadic Exposure is an expansion of a smaller project titled Beyond The Garden. What started out as a feature-length documentary about action sports communities in New Jersey quickly became a short story about select wakeboarders and surfers and why they choose to do their sport in their home state of New Jersey.

Nomadic Exposure aims to go deeper into a singular aspect that Beyond The Garden shed some light on. Instead of focusing on action sports in New Jersey as a whole, Untitled wants to take a look at a  few passionate surfers, who they are, what they represent, and most importantly, what surfing means to them.

Narrating their journey through live voiceovers, the characters of the film will be telling their own story. Each character will have their own voice capable of explaining exactly what is going on throughout the film.

At the core, this is a story about surfing, but this is also a story about surfing in New Jersey. Using only New Jersey natives, Nomadic Exposure wants to take these riders out of their home state to truly show what New Jersey means to them. By taking them out of their home breaks, we allow them to be fully immersed into the surfing culture they may or may not be familiar with, only to bring them back to surf one final wave all together.

We’re going to take them exotic places all around the world - Fiji, Tahiti, Portugal, Mexico, etc. Anywhere there is huge surf swell, we want to go. Not only are we traveling to these places to surf, we are traveling there to truly understand what it means to be a surfer. As Americans, we are accustomed to a certain quality of life. With that said, we want these surfers to experience what a surfing community is like in a different country. By immersing ourselves into these different cultures, we can truly show what it’s like to be apart of a different community.

What is going to bring these two distinct cultures together?

That’s easy - surfing.
