Winner Viewers Choice 2011 – STOKED AND BROKE – Dir: Cyrus Sutton USA

From the EMMY award winning filmmaker, this is a staycation surfari epic on zero dollars. Making their own boards, bamboo rickshaws, solar cookers, and hobo stoves, surfers Ryan Burch and Cyrus Sutton set off on a thirty mile, eight day walk through San Diego, CA. But what begins as a guide to taking a minimalist surfing journey, quickly becomes an examination of freedom vs alienation.
