  • Journey to the Center– a travelogue documenting Kepa Acero and Dane Gadauskas as they find rich culture and great waves in Africa’s Gabon,

Next up at 9PM, we’ll head far south with

  • Mares del Sur – a new film from Cripta Imagen following the journey of a 120km walk through southern Chile on the first surf expedition into the wilderness of Golfo de Penas,
  • The Man and the Sea – Andrew Kaineder’s brief look at the otherworldly finless talent of Derek Hynd sliding around at J-bay on his friction free craft, and
  • Wrapping up the evening will be our second feature, The Zone – Jack Coleman’s underappreciated cast of trippers will have you remembering how much fun we’re all supposed to be having—come get in the zone!
