If you’re into artsy, soul surfing flicks, and have yet to make weekend plans, I’d highly recommend catching a showing of Thomas Campbell’s new surf flick, The Present. Premiering tonight at Encinitas’ La Palmona, the two showings (7pm & 9pm) are expected to draw sizable crowds. Following Campbell’s previous films, The Seedling and Sprout, his newest project is sure to incorporate his signature art-laced style, along with some tri-fin action and overall exploration of the beauty of surfing and surfing culture.
Featured surfers include Dave Rastovich, Dane Reynolds, Rob Machado, Alex Knost, Joel Tudor, Sofia Mulanovich, C,J. Nelson, Ry Craike, Devon Howard, Dan Malloy, Harrison Roach, Kassia Meador, Jacob Stuth, Chelsea Georgenson Hedges, Chris Del Moro, Michael Junad, Ian King, and Danny Hess.
Tonight’s show at the historic La Paloma Theater promises appearances by surfers Dan Malloy, Keith Malloy, Rob Machado, Devon Howard, Kassia Meador and Chris del Moro.
