Larry Leahy and Tito da Costa (on set, standing in for the actors’ next scene)


The wild ride and creative collaboration between Tito and Larry began at film school in Los Angeles. Larry was working as a film professor teaching a series of directing and production classes, and Tito was a serious film student, just beginning his filmmaking career.

“I immediately recognized that Tito possessed not only a rare and unique talent as a filmmaker, but also, as a world class surfer/skater, he had a unique perspective into a world that I had never seen portrayed on film before.”

“Something just clicked creatively between us, and I knew I wanted to collaborate with him. We realized we both shared a common sense of adventure and ‘need for speed’ in our past escapades.
