On Thursday, July 27th at 8:00 PM, celebrated author Jamie Brisick talks “A Life In Surfing” at the Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Peter Norton Symphony Space, located at 2537 Broadway and 95th Street in New York City.
Brisick, a prolific contributor to the culture of surfing, will talk for the evening about surf literature, film, and photography. Jamie has spent more than four decades deeply immersed in surfing, first as a professional surfer in the ’80s and ’90s, and since then as a writer, photographer, and filmmaker. An author of several books, an editor of international surf magazines, and a Fulbright scholar, he is an astute observer of the culture.
In conversation with Chris Gentile, founder of Pilgrim Surf + Supply, and through a selection of his photographs, Jamie will discuss his life in surfing at Symphony Space, as well as show excerpts from a few of his favorite surf films, which include Jack McCoy’s Stormriders, Greg Schell’s Chasing the Lotus, and Alby Falzon’s Morning of the Earth.
