Flat Earth:  a surfing tale about the wonder of the present moment

“This Now moment in which I’m talking, and you are listening, is eternity.”  – Flat Earth

Flat Earth is a surfing visual metaphor of Jonathan Gonzalez, who under the watchful eye of the sun, decides to wrap himself up in a wetsuit and paddle to the end of a new world.  Directors Christian Rosillo and Sergio Villalba painstakingly and compassionately pay tribute to the idea that the only way to reveal the truth in things is to experience them.  Our job, as humans, is to be aware of this extraordinary gift:  the present.

Welcome to Flat Earth.

Evelyn O'Doherty, editor & publisher of the new Standup Journal 2.0 is a former school teacher gone rogue. She left her career as a teacher in order to spend more time near or on the water after learning to surf turned her life around (upsidedown?). She is a year-round surfer and paddler living on the eastern tip of Long Island in NY who is a certified SUP instructor, seasoned SUP racer and avid longboard surfer. Evelyn was hired as Online Editor to Standup Journal in 2016. Her passion for the project quickly led to her success and eventually taking over the mag herself in Oct. 2018. Today, as editor, publisher and chief bottle washer at Standup Journal, Evelyn keeps her toes wet writing, traveling, paddling, surfing, and learning to foil. You can find her most days paddling out on Gardiner's Bay or surfing Ditch Plains in Montauk, NY.
