“The Train“ is the first installment in a three-part documentary series by award winning director Josh Landan (Against The Grain, FLOW). The first film will star pro surfer/songwriter Timmy Curran as a tour guide down the West Coast as the group stops at various train and surf spots along the Amtrak line. The movie will be a blend of surfing, interviews, musical performance and lifestyle commentary on the culture and communities they encounter. The entire documentary will be shot on 16 mm film, coupled with a six-part TV series around the filming. The second and third installments ofÂ “The Train“ are slated to film in Japan (2009) and along the East Coast (2010) in the same style and format. “The Train“ will begin a national tour in the summer of 2009 with premiers and musical performances by some of the stars in scheduled cities around the US. The stars include Timmy Curran, Dane Reynolds, Damien Hobgood, Ian Walsh, Taylor Knox and many more. The stops along “The Train” include San Francisco, San Luis Obispo, Ventura, San Clemente, Santa Cruz, Santa Barbara, San Diego, Malibu, El Segundo and Huntington Beach.
Three years ago, Timmy Curran was busy perfecting “The Flip” on his surfboard – A full rotation, upside-down flip he became famous for after landing it in two-foot surf at Rocky Point in Hawaii during the winter of 2005. Curran is considered by many a pioneer of surfing’s “Aerial Revolution” of the 1990’s. Fast forward to 2008, Curran is still a professional surfer, although he has decided to take some time off from competing. Along with surfing, he’s now doing what he’s always dreamt of doing: becoming a musician…a touring musician who’s hit the road with Foo Fighters, Switchfoot and Eisley over the course of the last year. Timmy Curran’s debut albumÂ Word Of Mouth came out July 22nd on Adeline Records.
