Idiosyncrasies hits Laguna town

Thanks to all who showed up at the Idiosyncrasies premiere in Laguna last night. Some lucky hoodlums ended up with a random assortment of SWELL schwag ranging from $100 gift cards and backpacks to shirts, hats and whatever else the SWELL crew could throw at the crowd. Besides all the gear given away on the spot, those who signed up at the SWELL booth were also entered to win the $50K Billabong Team boat sweepstakes. So if you missed this showing, make sure to show up at the next venue to sign up and claim your prizes!

Judging from the hoots and whistles coming from the crowd, the movie was a hit as well and the sound of cheers and coldies cracking was a many throughout the film. The after party was equally enjoyable; wine was flowing and Christian Beamish’s film-featured hand-crafted sailing vessel was parked out front on PCH. It was a great night out on the town and we here at SWELL are definitely looking forward to the next showing. Next Stop on the film tour will be Encinitas at La Paloma theater, a venue that always delivers a fun and memorable experience. Stay tuned for more detailed information & updates about future showings where we will hook you all up with some more gear and giveaways!
