San Clemente, CA – Timmy Turner, Director of the award winning surf film, Second Thoughts, will appear at the Surfing Heritage Foundation’s Friday Afternoon Surf Film Series on August 28th at 3 pm. Turner, local soul surfer from Huntington Beach, has made the waters of Indo his home away from home. Second Thoughts was a Surfer Magazine Surfer Poll Awards Best Movie winner.
Alone on an uninhabited Indonesian island in the middle of nowhere, Timmy and his friends, Brett Swartz and Travis Potter, are dropped off for a month. Once there, they have “second thoughts” about their month-long island stay. While braving the elements with little food and water, what follows is some of the most amazing surf footage on the sickest reefs in Indo.
Turner’s talent in surfing and filmmaking has impressed fans around the world. In 2004, after the devastating earthquake in Indonesia, Timmy, Kristian McQue, and Dustin Humphries delivered 75 tons of relief supplies to the islands located at the epicenter of the quake. This humanitarian effort was documented in the film, Tsunami Diaries: Voyage To The Epicenter.
Meet Timmy at the Surfing Heritage on Friday, August 28th, and watch the matinee screening of Second Thoughts starting at 3 pm. Admission is only $3 (free for SHF members) and includes free popcorn! To make it a real matinee, candy and beverages will be available for purchase. The Friday Afternoon Film Series will be held at the Foundation’s cultural heritage facility located at 110 Calle Iglesia, San Clemente, CA 92672.
