"Unsalted: A Great Lakes Experience" to be screened at Box Factory for the Arts
Great Lakes surfers will tell you that September and October, even the depths of winter, provide the best waves. Join filmmaker and surfer Vince Deur of Spring Lake, MI, on a road trip around the Great Lakes to meet the surfers who have made surfing these waters a way of life for more than 40 years.
"Unsalted: A Great Lakes Experience" is the October 7th First Friday Film at the Box Factory for the Arts. Admission at the door for the 7:30 pm screening is $5 and refreshments will be available.
One part obsession, one part addiction, and an unending quest for adventure makes Great Lakes surfers a truly rare breed. Add 40 knot winds, 10 foot waves and frigid temperatures to a storm-ravaged freshwater sea and they'll tell you it's a recipe for fun.
"Unsalted" reflects an adventure of the spirit. It makes the case for unwavering optimism in the face of adversity, and it makes a landlocked group of surfers just a little better for it.
