Posted by LSFF on August 23, 2012 | News, Uncategorized

In celebration of the 10th Annual World Belly Board Championships, the London Surf / Film Festival is stoked to present the Cornish Premiere and special charity screening of the multi-award winning feature ‘Come Hell or High Water’ from Keith Malloy and Woodshed Films. The screening takes place 1st September, 7.30 PM at Driftwood Spars, St Agnes, Cornwall and tickets are only £5 – with all proceeds to National Trust. It’s going to be an epic night, followed by live music, so don’t miss out!

This beautiful ode to bodysurfing takes surfing back to its source, bringing us those most dedicated proponents of the glide, those watermen and women who inhabit a world close to the curl – a world of handplanes, bodysurfing and pure stoke. Shot primarily on 16mm at epic locations including the North Shore, Teahupoo, Mentawais, Cloudbreak and The Wedge, the film combines stunning cinematography with incredible story-telling to celebrate the simplicity and beauty of bodysurfing. “It’s about taking a breath, and kicking your feet, in the big blue sea,” explains Keith.”I love bodysurfing and have done it pretty avidly over the past 10 years. For me it’s some of the time I enjoy most in the ocean because you don’t have to worry about performing.  Surfing on a board can sometimes feel like more of a job.  Bodysurfing, you can just enjoy the ocean.   For me the story was to capture the essence of the sport along with the unique personalities.  I think both happened, I told the story and it unfolded as we went along.” Click HERE to read a full interview with Festival Director Chris Nelson and Director Keith Malloy.

The screening will be held on 1st September 2012 at 7.30pm at Driftwood Spars, St Agnes, Cornwall which is home to an award winning brewery. Tickets are just £5 available in advance from Driftwood, Aggie Surf Shop and Chapel Porth Beach Cafe and on the door with all proceeds going to National Trust. “The charity are guardians of our natural heritage, they work hard often behind the scenes to conserve and  protect some 760 miles of coastline so we’re thrilled to be able to support them with this premiere and to be working with them at this year’s London Surf / Film Festival,” says creative Director Demi Taylor
