"New York figures heavily into East Coast surfing history. The very first East Coast Surfing Championships were held in Gilgo Beach in 1961. The only Rightside stop of the ASP World Championship Tour's modern incarnation came in Long beach in 2011. New York City is the de facto epicenter of today's urban surfing craze. And no place embodies the competing interests of upper-class surf tourism and hardcore blue-collar localism like Montauk. Similarly, no surf film captures that Empire State spirit better than A Hundred Miles to The End, native son John Beattie's 51-minute ode to Long Island and all of her waterborne beauty. After being diagnosed with a medical ...

Backyard treasures

An honest and caring tribute to the natural gems all around us if we open our eyes to see. And to those who get out there in them. So look, open up, and move to the beauty. Start here. You will never go back.

Best east coast surf film ever

Finally someone tells the story of Long Island surfing and it's a great one!

Fantastic ("You have surf on Long Island?") waves, best I've ever seen on the east coast (or pretty much anywhere, for that matter). Accurately discusses the Long Island surf scene -- just don't tell anyone that the wave quality shown in the film is once-in-a-lifetime only!

Long Island surfers are a tough breed, no doubt about it. Bottom line: great story, great waves and excellent videography from NYC to Montauk.

Great surfing film . . .

I heard about this film from my cousins who surfed Long Island growing up. Great footage that shows New York has some serious waves ! And the music is really outstanding - enjoyed it very much. Also liked the $1.99 rental for the week - watched it a couple of times.

EXCELLENT depiction of the Long Island surf culture. 1:30 non-stop minutes of great waves and great wave riders. Make sure you watch this film in a meat locker. It is that hot!

Representing Long Island!

John did an incredible job of inviting the viewer into a surf culture found nowhere else. What Long Island lacks in a tropical landscape, it makes up for in the adventure of getting to the surf whether it's by boat, car, or 4x4. Set 100 miles apart are two of the best breaks on the East coast with scores of fun, crowdless breaks in between. Must see!

Best local film ever

Saw this at the premier in Sayville last year. A must for every Long Island surfer, and a great one for those out of state. It is proof that NY does get excellent waves, has great surfers and this is very well filmed.

One of the most Authentic Surf Films I have ever seen

This is one of the best surf films that I have ever seen. filled with amazing shots, great music and my favorite places on Long Island. John has truly captured the feeling and the characters on the East Coast Surf scene. Truly a classic to add to your collection! ~ Wendy Tarlow

Local knowledge pays off

John Beattie surfed Long Island for over four decades. He's hit the world class spots and all the unknown, come and go breaks that shift with the seasons. He know when it's going to fire and where. This lifetime of local knowledge pays off big in A Hundred Miles to The End as John's camera beautifully captures the best of the Island's waves in a visually stunning homage to surfing for the love of surfing.
