Santa Barbara Family Life - First Santa Barbara Surf Film Festival
First Santa Barbara Surf Film Festival set for Nov. 8-9
The beaches from Rincon to Jalama are world famous, and over the decades surfers and others have fought to keep the ocean and local shores clean for future generations.
Now a local surfer has developed a film festival to help with that effort.
“I paddle out every day, regardless if there are waves. It’s a great way to connect with nature and exercise. I wanted to create an event where other people could educate themselves and have the fun experience of seeing surf/ocean films on the big screen,” said Sean Maurer, creator of the Santa Barbara Surf Film Festival.
