London Surf / Film  Festival 

Founded in 2011 by surfers and writers Chris Nelson and Demi Taylor, London Surf / Film Festival is an annual celebration of the cream of international surf culture.

The 13th Edition  London Surf / Film Festival hits 7-9th November 2024.


London Surf / Film Festival began, where all the best ideas start life: around the kitchen table, in the deep mid winter, after a few good waves. The aim was to bring together the UK surfing tribes to share the stoke, the storytelling and the cream of surf culture, and it has grown to become a must attend gathering for the global waveriding collective.

Bringing to the UK a showcase of international surfing’s hottest releases – documentaries to inspire, travelogues to stir up the wanderlust, cutting edge action to blow minds and cinematography to mesmerise – London Surf / Film Festival is a celebration of the cream of international surf culture.

Alongside a line up of premieres, award winning features and underground hits, we curate a packed programme of happenings around the festival including the ever popular ‘Audiences With’ –  insight from waveriding’s most inspiring heroes and icons a whole heap of good times.

Set against a backdrop of art, talks, music, gallery shows, workshops, community and more this saline hit of inspiration is the essential cultural happening for anyone of a salt water persuasion.

London Surf / Film Festival is an Approaching Lines production.
