Brian Conley’s second film endeavor, My Eyes Won’t Dry 2 (Tube Vision) was released in late 2008. The in-depth tube riding adventure takes viewers on a journey through Tahiti, Mexico, Indonesia, Australia. The Solana Beach-based tube aficionado was awarded Breakthrough Filmmaker at the 2006 Surfer Poll awards for the revolutionary water cinematography in his 2006 release My Eyes Won’t Dry.

When Conley signed with Oakley 13 years ago, he was known as a top US Junior. Now, the eccentric California charger, who has graced the covers of both Surfer and TW Surf, is known for traveling to far-flung locals in search of the perfect barrel. The strict raw vegan who practices yoga has three skis stashed around the world and explores uncharted territory via his super truck, the “Hurricane Hunter”. Conley is known for conquering epic waves all over the world. If he’s not the first to paddle out in monster Teahupoo or Off the Wall at the North Shore, he’s discovering new surf spots in mainland Mexico.

“I’m really excited to bring my experiences into the eyes of anyone who enjoys the sport of surfing anywhere in the world.” says Conley.
