Surf enthusiasts and filmmakers from around the globe come celebrate the art of surf cinema at these beautiful SoCal beaches.

San Diego may not be the birthplace of surfing but there is no questioning the contributions and innovations that this coastal city and community have shared with the surfing universe. Early in the 20th century, visiting Hawaiians George Freeth and Duke Kahanamoku sewed seeds into fertile soil that flourishes to this day. Since the first waves were ridden, the surfing timeline consists of revered names such as Simmons, Ekstrom, Gordon, Van Artsdalen, Frye, Diffenderfer, Hansen, Curren, Caster, Hynson, Dobson, Oakey, Benson, Lis, O'Rourke, Divine, Preisendorfer, Mirandon, Pendarvis, Roper, Thrailkill, Warner, Beal, Kenvin, Steele, Hall, Burch, Feighan, Littlemore and Baker - to mention just a few. Combine this surfing history with over 70 miles of coastline, an innovative group of board designers and a deep talent pool, it to helps understand the significance the area has.

San Diego embraces everything that is wave riding. Since the festival's inception, the event has been focused towards celebrating those who draw a different line in sand. Much like the colorful characters of surfing's past, the future of surf cinema will be found in the among those making their own unique, different paths.
