The 1st night

Opening night saw beach bar La Plancha packed with surf and cinema lovers. Kicking off the event was the world premiere of ‘Water from the Moon’ which documents the tidal river wave Bono in Sumatra. Director and Indo surf pioneer Arya Subyakto presented his film and took questions from the awe struck crowd about this crocodile infested destructive wave in the middle of the jungle.

 

The main film of the night was the Asian premiere of Surfing & Sharks; all eyes were glued to the big screen with this compelling documentary which gives an insight into the huge fear factor South African surfers face every time they go out for a ride.
