What you can expect

Discover Jersey's unexpected surf story and get hands on with core content. Led by Ted Simpson, you will work with video interview technique, interview surf legend Steve Harewood, capture the history behind El Tico and meet Dan Harris, the entrepreneur behind Jersey's Surfyard.

Divided into several parts, one team will get to meet and work with these two inspiring characters, go behind the scenes on the El Tico and the Surfyard today. You'll also get to grab a beer with Jersey's Heritage Surf club and capture inspiring stories first hand.

For those who want to dive right in, a second team will hit the waves. After a quick introduction to surfing, you'll have the incredible opportunity try out surf and water photography techniques to capture some truly awe inspiring content.
