“Surfing for me can be pretty existential. A lot of times when I surf in the evening and long after the sun sets, I try to quiet my mind and try to perceive everything around me with all my senses. I think for me, surfing is all about gratitude. It’s definitely a privilege, and I get this feeling that when I’m thanking the universe for all its gifts, it’s thanking me too.” -Manny Caro 

Pilgrim Film follows shaper Manuel “Manny” Caro of Mandala surfboards through his design processes and product testing.

Growing up in New Jersey, Shawn discovered and quickly immersed himself in the sub-culture of surfing and skateboarding in the mid 80’s. With a diverse and eclectic background, Shawn has walked the path of a competitive surfer, Hare Krsna monk, action sports industry player in NYC, DIY theology and religions major, and a touring punk rock musician. Now a father and self-proclaimed seeker of the “soul” of surfing, Shawn enjoys sessions with friends at uncrowded peaks along his home state’s shoreline and writing about his surf related experiences.
