|Peck Euwer grew up in Pittsburgh, PA, and never even considered surfing other
than catching rare glimpses on Wide World of Sports. That all changed when he moved to California in 1993. He bought a board and started flailing at El Porto in LA's South Bay, one of the most revered secret spots on the California coast. His passion for the sport grows with each passing year, and constantly threatens to disrupt his life. Fortunately, both his wife and son surf.
Peck is a producer-cameraman-editor, whose Santa Barbara based production company, Swell Pictures, Inc., specializes in film and video production. Peck began his career as a sound editor at National Geographic Television and then moved west to become a camera man for Mike deGruy’s The Film Crew, Inc. also based in Santa Barbara. His independent film releases include: “The Big Swell”, “The Craving” and “Losing the Elephants”. Peck’s long list of camera credits span 15 years and include: National Geographic, Discovery, PBS, BBC, NBC and many more.
