Surf Cult 08 is a celebration of the lifestyle and culture of the surfing world, rolling onto the shores of Porthcawl for its second year this September.
Valley and Vale is a partner in this project which fuses together surfing and surf/skate culture, including music, art and film screenings. The festival, housed in Porthcawl Grand Pavilion in South Wales, offers an action-packed programme including a multimedia arts exhibition, innovative music events, two film nights and the Tsunami Surf & Skate Cup (including beach games for the family). There is an absolute feast of films this year in the Surf Cult Festival, with UK premiere ‘On The Push’ (eco surf film), a very interesting true life surf travel documentary called Surfwise, action-packed Substance, and local skate boarding film Who?
Surf Cult takes place from Sat the 6th right through to Tuesday the 23rd of September and forms part of New Light Project in the Borough, which we are also part of, running photography and digital art workshops for young and older people across the Bridgend area.
This is a Bridgend County Borough Council Arts and Culture Service initiative and we have enjoyed working in a positive partnership with our local Council on this project. For more information on the events please visit www.surf-cult.co.uk and www.newlightbridgend.com.
