Until 31st August filmmakers are invited to submit their films for consideration for this year’s festival programme. Surfing and surf culture are wide open to interpretation and films that explore all aspects and angles are welcomed.
Sunday 31st August also sees the entries to The LS/FF Shorties short film contest close. The Shorties, celebrating the wealth of homegrown talents on our shores, is open exclusively to filmmakers from or based in the UK and Ireland and open to entries up to 5 minutes in length.
“The art of story telling is deeply embedded within our surfing heritage,” says Festival Director Chris Nelson. “The level of entries we’ve had so far to this year’s festival - features, documentaries, shorts and mind-blowing movies showcasing the cutting edge of performance surfing - clearly demonstrates that the surfing narrative is alive and well.”

It may be too late for the ASP Big Wave World Tour, but Dungeons lit up.
Conor Maguire harks towards a time when the cold and dark wraps back in and the lows deepen, spinning thick ropes of swell towards Ireland.
Italy has waves and Sardinia has some of the best spots, places you would not believe. Leonardo Fioravanti knows that better than most...
From the Caribbean to Nova Scotia (and maybe even Europe) the forecast is for a medium sized swell to grace your local beach.
Like a lot of the waves in the edit, this one is a grower. Dusty Payne and Yadin Nicol make light work of things you'd sail on by.
Highlight of the day was the 17-year-old brother of local legend Manoa. He blew everyone away.
