A 16mm Surf Film by Kyle Pahlow, Creative Direction by Nick Zegel
Kyle is a 23 year old aspiring cinematographer. He currently works with NFL Films freelancing on commercial shoots around the tri-state area. Nick Zegel is a 24 year old freelance graphic artist living and working in Philadelphia. When not working on personal projects like A Pleasant Surprise Nick works with a large variety of clients and leads the creative side of a small independent clothing label, Jetty.

A Pleasant Surprise offers an honest look at the talents of a select group of surfers who live in a truly special part of the United States. Almost three years in the making, this film documents a world of contrast as daily changes in weather and waves prove to be all part of a larger picture; thumping beach breaks, cold water, and quick tropical storms are just a fraction of what you will find. Brought to you in Super 16mm, A Pleasant Surprise allows for the full beauty of this region and its surfers to be realized.

Shot on location in New Jersey & New York

Featuring some of New Jersey's top professional and amateur surfers including...
Ben McBrien, Andrew Gesler, Zach Humphries, Jamie Moran, Randal Townsend, Brendan Willem, Chris & Rob Kelly, Matt Keenan, Sam Hammer, Luke Ditella & Ian Bloch.

Approx. Running Time
55 minutes
