Surf Ohio 40 Years - Cincinnati - Ohio River Tee

Over the years, Surf Ohio has turned up in many films and TV shows, often being worked into the plot.  One such production was the 1993 teen film, AIRBORNE, which takes place in Cincinnati and was shot on location.  Its producers invited me down to the set at Western Hills High, where I met the director, Rob Bowman (who went on to later fame as director of the X-FILES) and his cast.

Rob kindly allowed me to shoot some of my own photos of AIRBORNE’s star, teen heart-throb and actor, Shane McDermott, wearing the Surf Ohio in which he would be filmed later that day.  Being a huge movie buff, I relish opportunities to witness the “behind-the-scenes” action on the set. I marveled at how the team of Hollywood set designers took an old 1930s-era high school cafeteria and, after using about four semi’s full worth of paint, lumber and furniture, turned it into, well, an old 1930s-era high school cafeteria.  I also vividly recall meeting McDermott’s two co-stars in AIRBORNE, a couple of young punks who, with my razor sharp assessment of Hollywood talent, I very quickly opined would go nowhere. Their names? Seth Green and Jack Black.

Ifyou are going somewhere, don’t forget to take a little bit of Cinci with you - pack your Ohio River Masters Surfing Classic tee.  It may not be quite the same as a heaping bowl of Skyline, but believe me, it’s a whole lot easier to get by airport security. And hey, whatever DID happen to Shane McDermott?
