Brothers George and Bill Bryan, natives of Laguna Beach, credit the city as the inspiration behind their film company, 10th Street Bros. Films.
"We made our first movie in my bedroom on Tenth Ave. in South Laguna," George said via email. "They call the beach [there] Tenth Street, which was a magical place at the time. Unfortunately, due to what many think is overdevelopment, there is way more sand there now and the wave doesn't break anymore."
The company makes movies around their favorite sport — skimboarding.
"I have been skimboarding my whole life like my brother, Bill," George said. "Our skimboarding is very different, but we both have the same love for it. He enjoys kicking people's butts in competition and I prefer to skim waves by myself where I can sit in the tube. That is why he is the 14-time world champion and I am a single-time world champion."
