"Martin's 5: Battle" for the Beach explores the Surfrider Foundation's fight to keep America's beaches open to the public through the lens of a monumental court case in San Mateo County, California that will have larger implications on beach access issues in the United States. "This is a great story and we were fortunate to capture a historical moment as it unfolded. This is a Constitutional issue that affects each and every one of us," said Director and Producer, Richard Yelland.
"We wanted to provide a snapshot of one of the many ongoing beach access campaigns Surfrider is championing," said Zach Weisberg, Co-Producer and Publisher at The Inertia. "We hope this film raises awareness for beach access issues nationwide and motivates people to make an impact by getting involved in that conversation." Join the fight to ensure America's beaches are free for all to enjoy by logging on to www.surfrider.org/access and making a donation to support Surfrider's fight for beach access.
