Photos Are Here for June 17 & 18 – Father’s Day Weekend

After a crazy Saturday night power outage that canceled our screening of the much awaited documentary The Yin and Yang of Gerry Lopez, we found time to rap with all the fans and relax a bit for once. We have most certainly never experience anything like this before, and we will do our best to make it up to you.

First, thank you for those who made it out, and second, so many great photos from this weekend are now available thanks to the power team of Christian Oehmke (@christianoehmke) and Jade Camacho. See the links above for photos. This website is a public website, and if you would like any of these photos removed, please let us know. Otherwise, feel free to download and post everywhere you’d like.

The ticket holders for Saturday night have been contacted, but you all should know that we are pursuing an agreement with Patagonia that will allow us to show The Yin and Yang of Gerry Lopez on or about June 26th or 27th. Stay tuned for more details.


John JB Brooks, my co-founder for the festival, shares a bit about how he came to be a surfer, competitor, and world traveler. He has plenty stories in the noggin, but this one’s a thriller. Get caught up with the upcoming Father’s Day Weekend Festival as well, June 17th and 18th. Enjoy.
