Talented female surfers from San Clemente and Dana Point featured in longboard film
By Andrea Swayne
A new movie called Say No More features local San Clemente and Dana Point longboard surfers Makala Smith, Karina Rozunko, Tory Gilkerson and Lindsay Steinriede-Engle. The four joined co-stars Erin Ashley and Stephanie Vigiano on July 26 in Carlsbad for the film’s premier.
Hundreds of enthusiastic fans and friends showed support for the group by filling the theater for two showings of the movie at the historic Carlsbad Village Theatre.
Steinriede-Engle said she was thankful to be a part of the female-only cast and grateful that someone was finally willing to make a video dedicated entirely to women’s longboarding.
“I am very honored to have been a part of it,” she said while greeting guests under the marquee after the second showing.
Rozunko and Smith said surfing with co-stars who are also friends made the making of the film a fun and rewarding experience.
“We’ve been working on this project for a little over a year and a half and it’s just really exciting to see the final product,” added Gilkerson.
