Ironically, in our ever-expanding digital age, grassroots community events are actually on the rise, no doubt given the prevalence of social networking tools like Facebook. But innovative thinkers like Carter Blackwell and Damian Ewens, co-founders of Rhode Island’s Providence Dawn Patrol, deserve credit, too. Blackwell and Ewens hosted their inaugural First Light Surf Family Gathering on May 9th at Providence’s artsy Cable Car Cinema, and even though Facebook surely helped them pack in the stoked spectators, a deep-seated desire to connect the New England surf community via boardbuilding, film, photography, and environmentalism is at the heart of the project. Longtime ESM correspondent and Rhodey mainstay Joe McGovern caught up with Blackwell to get the scoop.
