Along with highlights of current surfers in the state, the show will also feature historical footage filmed in Newport and Narragansett in the 1960s and 70s.

Among those featured is Sid Abruzzi, owner of Water Brothers in Newport and one of the “godfathers” of surfing in Rhode Island.  Also featured are several other personalities important to the local surfing scene, including Dave Levy, Mario Frade, Craig Knowles, Jamie Risser, and Tom Hogan.

Hogan, owner of Warmwinds Surf Shop, is featured in “Shop Talk,” a weekly segment that lets viewers know how to get involved in the local scene.
