The Electric Acid Surfboard Test
EUROPEAN PREMIERE: The Electric Acid Surfboard Test Dir: Ashton Goggans
(DOUBLE BILL WITH RAILROAD Feat. Nic Von Rupp Dir. GUSTAVO IMIGRANTE)
FRIDAY 12 OCT, Regent St Cinema, W1 // SESSION 2 // 8.50pm >> TICKETS <<
What happens when you bring Dane Reynolds and 10 tripped out surfboards, hand-shaped by some of the most radical hands dabbling in foam and fibreglass, for a ten-day mind-melter at Mexico’s loveliest sand points? Well, you’ll just have to come and see for yourself. With more airs, punts, man hacks, barrels and rainbowing rooster tails Dane proves that he is (to quote one of our screening panel) the most relevant and groundbreaking surfer on the planet. If you’ve ever surfed a surfboard, you’re not going to want to miss this!
The brainchild of Stab‘s Editor in Chief, Ashton Goggans, The Electric Acid Surfboard Test is a celebration of surfing’s experimental tradition, and an exploration of some of the most iconic and disruptive alternative designs, put through their paces by surfing’s favourite design headcase.

RAIL ROAD Dir: Gustavo Imigrante
Nic Von Rupp embarks on an ethereal surf lapse around Europe, traversing the continent on night trains, branch lines and intercity expresses, finding stirring landscapes and time to contemplate, between stalking sickeningly shallow slabs with Mick Fanning and mind warpingly huge waves with Ireland’s bravest chargers. Presented by Nic von Rupp
