SURF MOVIE NIGHT XVI will feature THE SEAWOLF, an artistic piece of cinematography about winter surfing, created and directed by Ben Gulliver. THE SEAWOLF follows eight surfers on a two-year journey, as they travelled to the furthest corners of the globe including Scotland, Iceland, Norway, Faroe Islands, New Zealand, California, and Canada. Eight surfers are featured on a two-year journey : Balaram Stack, Chippa Wilson, Noah Wegrich, Noah Cohen, Josh Mulcoy, Cam Richards and Oliver Kurtz and the Canadian pro surfer Pete Devries.
Surfrider Foundation’s mission is the protection and enjoyment of oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network. The Eastern Long Island Chapter has been a strong advocate of public access and environmental preservation along our shoreline from Montauk Point to Moriches Inlet for over 15 years. Staffed by a dedicated team of volunteers, the grass roots chapter works with every level of government on resolving many important coastal issues. In addition, dozens of beach cleanups, educational programs, and dune plantings have been done with local students and community members.
Proceeds from the evening will benefit the Surfrider Foundation Eastern Long Island Chapter’s Clean Water Programs including Ocean Friendly Gardens, Rise Above Plastics, Ocean Friendly Restaurants and the Blue Water Task Force water quality-monitoring program which tests and reports on 50 local beach and freshwater sampling sites. The program provides critical data to residents and decision-makers to inform on health and safety issues pertaining to bacteria and other contaminants.
Hosted by Andy Brosnan, the event will feature interactive courtyard exhibits highlighting chapter programs and initiatives, a raffle and silent auction as well as other short surf films. An all ages event, this is a great family tradition and serves as the primary clean water fundraiser for the chapter.
Tickets, which are $20, are available at Eventbrite and at Guild Hall, 158 Main Street, East Hampton, on the night of the event.
