BECOME A PART OF JERSEY SURFING HISTORY
If you are passionate about surfing and Jersey water-sport culture, we need your support. Having unearthed previously unseen rolls of Super-8 footage showing Jersey surf legends going back to the 60’s, the Freevibe team has been working with the director Rebecca Coley on ‘Bunkers’, a short history of Jersey Surfing – a unique absolutely one-off movie.
Get a taste from our trailer below and see how you can contribute to the project.
Bunkers is a FREEVIBE passion project. I made contact with Rebecca Coley during the height of the pandemic in 2021 and suggested, “Hey Becs, why don’t we make a Jersey Surf Film?”. Rebecca had already had this in mind, so that was handy. And, Becs knew that one of our local legends, Gerry George was hoarding loads of great footage.
So, we got hold of Gerry, a great lover of surf movies and taking his own footage, and he was up for it! Our first hurdle was to get a couple of his rolls digitized – at the surprising cost of around £500 per roll! We have over 10 rolls to convert. We are seeking to cover the cost of converting the footage and the work to direct and produce the movie. We hope you want to be part of our journey and support the project.
