David is the executive producer for the documentary film Unsalted. One part obsession, one part addiction and an unending quest for adventure makes Great Lakes surfers a truly rare breed. Add 40-knot winds, 15-foot waves and rigid temperatures to a storm-ravaged inland sea and they'll tell you it's a recipe for fun. The film plays out on a road-trip around five Great Lakes with a cast of pro surfers to meet those who have made surfing these stormy waters a way of life for nearly 40 years. Unsalted reflects an adventure of the spirit, it makes the case for unwavering optimism in the face of adversity, and it makes this landlocked group of surfers just a little better for it.
