As well as showings in Portugal, Switzerland, Germany and Spain, there will be three premier showings in the UK in London, Newquay and Aberdeen, Scotland.

Now in it’s 5th year, the festival continues to grow and this year will be hosted between two picture houses and will offer a gallery show, live music, surf film premieres, and the opportunity to get involved in Q+A sessions with surfers and filmmakers.
