Feeling surfing roots
LEGENDARY Australian film-maker Jack McCoy headlines at two events for the Museum of British Surfing this month.
There is a showing of Jack's new film A Deeper Shade Of Blue in conjunction with the Croyde Deckchair Cinema on Tuesday, June 26 at Croyde Village Hall.
"This is not a surf movie, it is a film about surfing's deepest roots: in the subconscious; in ancient lore; in the craft of surfboard building; in man's perpetual quest for a joyful relationship with the natural world," said Jack. "In 11 interwoven chapters, today's leading surfers are linked to those who came before, for a deeper appreciation of what it means to be a surfer and the soulful underlying power of modern surf culture. This is a big picture of a memorable story, beautifully told. It is a film about feeling good to be alive – and it will make you feel good."
Tickets: £5 (adult), £3.50 (concession and under 16s) from the Museum of British Surfing in Braunton (11am to 5pm, Tuesday to Sunday). Doors open at 7.30pm and the event starts at 8pm.
There's also a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with Jack McCoy in a film masterclass at the Museum of British Surfing on Wednesday, June 27, 6.30pm. Tickets: £5.
