UK PREMIERE: The Scramble Gamble by Nathan Myers //
Nathan Myers has grown to become a perennial fixture in the LS/FF line-up and there’s a good reason for this – his films are so damn good! In The Scramble Gamble four friends set off on an Indonesian road trip without checking the swell, booking reservations or any of that organisational crap. On their bikes, they have everything from a 5’2″ fish to a 9’6″ longboard. The best gamble is the one you take… surfing, scrambling, exploring, whatever.
Plus World Premiere: Headwind Haters Dir: Chris McClean
Top UK filmmaker Chris McClean gathers together a super slick threesome of surfers and sets off on a cycling and surfing odyssey around the fringes of Scotland’s Atlantic coast in a pedal powered adventure. Featuring Cornwall’s stylemaster-in-chief Mike Lay, Basque surf adventurer Kepa Acero and south west France’s female charger Lee-Ann Curren. Turns and talcum powder galore!
Presented in person by Kepa Acero, Mike Lay, LeeAnn Curren and Chris McClean.
Live music from LeeAnn Curren, CJ Mirra and Colin Macleod.
UK Premiere: Dispatches From Mexico dir: Eugenio Barcelloni
Charging huge Mexican beach break barrels with Euro traveller explorer Eugenio Barcelloni. “Dispatch from Mexico is a mix of images that tell my long journey through the Southern Pacific coast of Mexico, the State of Oaxaca and Chiapas. I often travelled by bus, captivated by the deep roots of these areas, from places of worship and crowded squares to the wild nature, combining my passion for big waves.”
