Thomas Campbell’s new surf film The Present is premiering in my hometown of Encinitas, CA at the historic La Paloma theater so I cruised down to the Patagonia store in nearby Cardiff-by-the-sea to get a ticket.
Devon Howard hands over the goods.
It’s always fun when surf movie posters show up around town.
JM liked the Patagonia store,
he ran amuck and caused all kinds of chaos.
I’m going to the Friday, March 6th 7 pm show.

Stop by Patagonia Cardiff to buy pre-sale tickets to the world premier of “The Present,” a surf film by Thomas Campbell, maker of “Sprout” and “The Seedling.” Campbell’s new film is a colorful and artistic exploration of the beautiful environment surfers frolic in every day.
Through his lush style of filmmaking and intimate city-by-city screenings, Campbell hopes to help keep alive the dying tradition of surfers gathering at a local theater to view a new independent surf film. Mattson 2, who played on the soundtrack, will perform live.

Tickets are $11. Pre-sale ticket requests will not be taken over the phone. You must purchase them in person at:

My friend Scott Bass made an excellent film about surfers in the Vietnam war called Between the Lines and the film just won an award for best documentary at the X-Dance Film Festival. Way to go Bassy, Ty Ponder and Troy Page for creating an incredible piece of work. I recommend that everyone check out this film.
