What we do

We are writers. Simply put, we tell good stories well.  We tell the tales of youth culture’s most innovative and interesting players and pioneers through groundbreaking documentaries, film projects and TV series. We write for the national press and core surf media in print and online and create best selling books on surf, travel and culture. We produce happenings big and small, bringing people together to create new tales. We delight in a well turned phrase – in film, on line in print and in person.

We’re always excited to hear about new projects and collaborations. Say hello: hello@approachinglines.com
