Thanks to long time friend Tyler Nilson, an Ability surfboard got plugged into "1408" starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson!
No thanks to the screen resolution, the guy waxing the board about 8 seconds into the clip is waxing an Ability board(one of Tyler's own).
Nice one Tyler and MASSIVE thanks!

Tyler is currently acting and directing in L.A., not to mention surfing...
