The Museum of British Surfing is proud to present another UK film premier – Going Vertical – the epic search to unravel one of surfing’s greatest mysteries… who started the shortboard revolution?
The debate still rages across the Pacific – who really lit the fuse of this massive shift in surfboard design during the tumultuous 1967 ‘summer of love’ that turned surfing upside down.
On Thursday August 30th 2012 at 7.30pm we’ll be showing the movie at Croyde Village Hall in association with our fabulous friends at the Croyde Deckchair Cinema – the first 38 tickets sold will get deckchairs at the front of the hall. Advance tickets only – priced £5 (cash only) – are available now from the Museum of British Surfing in the Caen Street car park, Braunton between 10am & 4pm every day. 10% discount for season ticket holders.
Was it the Hawaiians or the Californians, or was it the brainchild of Australian surfing legend Bob McTavish, collaborating with George Greenough. Going Vertical tells both sides of this compelling story for the first time.
Filmed in Australia, Hawaii and California and featuring extraordinary archive footage from the past four decades, plus the hottest surfers in the world today.
Set to a pumping soundtrack including music by Pearl Jam plus iconic artists from the summer of love including Manfred Man and Thunderclap Newman – Going Vertical is the story of an era, of great rivalries and the amazing characters who changed surfing forever!
Narrated by Simon Baker, it features Dick Brewer, Bob Cooper, Mick Fanning, Skip Frye, Stephanie Gilmore, Mike Hynson, Duke Kahanamoku, Gerry Lopez, Micky Munoz, Greg N0ll, Kelly Slater, Rennie Yater, Nat Young, Wayne Lynch and Bob McTavish.
