SMASH (Surf ● Movies ● Art ● Shaping ● History) is a production company created by Adam Cannizzaro, Michael Machemer and Tyler Breuer, all native New Yorkers who have been actively involved in the NY surf community for more than two decades. The mission of SMASH is to present, in a public forum, a body of emerging and historical work from the local and global surf community throughout the year. The aim is to bring to light the profound contributions of artists, shapers, filmmakers, photographers, musicians and everyday surfers to the vast and diverse world we call ‘surf culture.’ Our mission is to encourage and promote the discussion about what surf culture was, is and can be by creating an arena in which this dialogue can take place.
