We’re stoked to be sponsoring the Byron Bay Surf Festival and hosting the Saturday night party!
As an official sponsor of Byron Bay Surf Festival, Woody’s Surf Shack is hosting the Saturday night festivities on October 22- including a screening of a classic surf film with filmmaker commentary, followed by live music.
As part of the Byron Bay Surf Festival, on Saturday October 22 at Woody’s Surf Shack, filmmaker Dick Hoole will screen “ In Search of Tubular Swells” and share insight and stories on the locations, surfers and the filmmaking process at 9:00pm.
Dick Hoole is an original- and a local Byronian! An accomplished filmmaker and photographer, Dick is best known for his legendary surf films. With limited finances and equipment, and after stowing away on a cruiser ship to Hawaii, Hoole and filmmaker Jack McCoy went on to film and produce two of the all time classic surf films to date, ‘In Search of Tubular Swells’ (1975) and ‘Storm Riders’ (1980).
Hoole will be immediately followed by a live performance by local favourite The Grains at 9:45pm- fresh from their latest East Coast tour! Check out their mix of Roots, Rock, Reggae and Surf. From fun, catchy, dance-worthy tracks to chilled out ballads; these local boys bring it all to the stage.
