Celebrating it’s 9th year, Ombak Bali Festival, South East Asia’s one and only surf film festival takes place from 13-15 September at La Laguna (starts daily at sunset). You can expect mind-blowing visuals with this year’s fabulous line up of films, fueled by epic adventures, whimsical journeys and low budget escapades by those impassioned by the motion of the ocean. Films lead us from the seething surf scene of Brazil in the 80’s to modern day seaside towns in Palestine where surfing is changing lives. See world champions, local heroes, monster waves and gentle rollers from Gaza, South Africa, Iceland, Spain and Portugal.
The OmbakBali crew has searched far and wide to find the most awesome, awe-inspiring films of the genre, films that go beyond the waves and show how surfing can mobilize, inspire and fuel social change. Highlights include Proximity the latest from Taylor Steele, as well as Endless Winter II and Gaza Surf Club. As always a stunning collection of shorts will run alongside the main features.
