Pirate for the Sea

E-mail Print PDF

pirate of the seaRon Colby

A long time ago, Ron Colby was an ocean lifeguard at Jones Beach for about ten summers. He subsequently moved to Los Angeles and worked as a filmmaker. He was astonished to learn that a lot of the lifeguards he had worked with all those years ago were still working the beach. So, over a period of two or three weeks during a few summers, he filmed those guys (and others) who had been guarding for thirty, forty, fifty, and in the case of one extraordinary individual, sixty-four years. The film touches on their lifestyle, and what keeps them coming back to the beach year after year.

Ron Colby's new documentary “Pirate for the Sea” will be on Discovery’s Planet Green on Saturday, March 6th at 10 PM. Catch it if you can.

All that’s good, Ron

Ron Blake Colby spent the summers of 2005 & 2006 shooting and interviewing for his fantastic Jones Beach Boys documentary. It is a top quality video that is visually pleasing with good music and some really classic interviews. I give it 4 whistles.
