I remember when Dalton first popped up on our surf forum. He was a young kid and he was making and posting these videos. You know the sort they were… Just type in “surfing” and your favorite local break into the YouTube browser and you will find a million of them.
As time passed, Dalton continued making videos and he worked with some local kids. Then he took a turn off the beaten path. His niche would be Dalton Smith – Stunt Man. Some of the videos made me cringe to tell you the truth. I thought I was a bit reckless in my youth…well, his antics made my child hood stunts look like I was raised in the offices of O.S.H.A.
Then came yet another turn in the history of his production group that he named NPI13 Productions. The production changed ten-fold. The music choices slowed down and suddenly he found a solid direction. Now he is working with a deeper talent pool of surfers and he created the Florida Adventure Series which I think are great! Sure there are some tense moments such as his swim with a very bulky hammerhead shark but this has replaced the high jumps off buildings into tiny buckets of water.
The other great thing about the Florida Adventure Series is that it now has taken on an environmental/educational angle.
So sit back and watch Dalton’s newest trip to South Florida and enjoy what can be found in my state!
