Surf movies on show in Newcastle

The 12th Australian Surf Movie Festival is heading to Newcastle in November to showcase “the best slabs on the planet” on the big screen. 

Over the last 10 years, Australia has become a Mecca for surfing crazy, ocean slabs. Big lumps of water that come out of deep ocean water and unload on to very shallow reefs. These waves create monster barrels and are intensely dangerous. Their size and power are truly a spectacle.  The breaks can be found dotted all over Australia’s coastline.

“Each year I am searching for the greatest moments the ocean can offer. When it comes to surfers verses nature and the pure exhilaration of what the ocean can deliver, the Southern Hemisphere has the greatest playground of options on the planet. It’s seasonal but there’s always so many amazing options to surf and shoot.” said the Director of the Australian Surf Movie Festival, Tim Bonython.

The 12th ASMF includes stories shot this year of the Right in Western Australia, Cape Solander (aka Cape Fear) in Sydney, a secret spot off the south coast of NSW Bombora, Shipsterns in Tasmania and Pedra Branca – a reef 27 kilometres out to sea + Hot off the press, Fiji October 2014 massive swell!

The festival comes to Newcastle’s Tower Event Theatres on Saturday November 29.
