Co-Founder Eugene Stiltner's Story


The man’s name was Joe Conway, and he missed a trip to see his mother who was dying from cancer at the time to come and help me. He helped me get into treatment at Father Martin’s Ashley in Havre De Grace, Maryland two days later and off I went to attempt to tackle my demons. He passed away a couple years ago; he is one of the people this movie is dedicated to. I am forever grateful to him for what he did for me that day.  


Fast-forward 11.5 years, and life is very different. I am happily married to the love of my life and we have an amazing 6 year-old son. I owned a successful restaurant for the last 7 years, and have produced 3 other movies, all in the surf world. I have gone back to school and will be graduating with my M.B.A. in Marketing from the University of Maryland in June.  Professionally though, I am most proud of what Scotty and I are doing here with Sober and Stoked. He and I have talked about doing this for years, and I am incredibly excited to make this Movie, and spread this Movement and Mindset to anyone who wants to be a part of it!
