Local filmmaker Gregory Scott is giving free surfing lessons this Sunday, Aug. 17 in Venice at the Rose parking lot lifeguard tower.
Scott is embarking on a journey to surf up the California coast from San Diego all the way to Oregon, giving surf and SUP lessons at the different beaches, for a film called Pacific Green Xtreme.
To kick off the project, he’s hosting a free surf lesson beach party in Venice from noon to 4 pm on Sunday.
He is doing it to expose beach goers who are not surfers to the sport and to give back sport he loves.
Scott gained fame as a five-year-old director and burst onto the entertainment scene, having articles in the likes of People Magazine and appearing on talk shows around world, including Oprah and Arsenio Hall.
He is now a solar panel engineer – he’s designed a portable solar panel to take on his trip and is providing solar power panels for an upcoming music festival in Washington, D.C. – and avid surfer.
Now 28, he is rediscovering his filmmaking youth with Pacific Green Xtreme.
