The Bruce Movie (Surfing)
AUGUST 13: 6PM & 7PM
TICKETS: FREE

The Bruce Movie is an in-depth look at one of the most renowned surfers on the planet: Bruce Irons. Some have described Bruce as, "A freak", "Unpredictably spontaneous", "Explosive" and "The deadliest guy on tour". Bruce's uncanny tube riding ability and high flying aerial attack will leave you awestruck. Along his path, Bruce has won surfing's most prestigious event: The Eddie Aikua Big Wave Invitational. In the film you will also witness his frustrating first year on the World Championship Tour; in typical Bruce fashion, he waits until the last second to regain a spot on the WCT where he makes the final at one of his favorite waves: Pipeline. This first film on Bruce Irons will go down in history as a must have in every surfer's library.

Also features: Joel Parkinson, Dean Morrison, Brad Gerlach, PT, Ian Cairns, Bob McTavish, Nat Young, Dick Brewer, Malcolm Cambpell, Matt Moore, Darren Handley, and Sam George and more...

In the film What's Next, Jessie Marley has again come up with an exciting real life, high action film covering the high pressure world of pro-surfing, particularly on Hawaii's North Shore. Featuring Bruce and Andy Irons and the rest of the North Shore Wolfpak, Jesse takes us on a 3D look at the 2004 WCT and the unprecedented Eddie Aikau win of Bruce Irons. What's NeXt also features amazing small wave aerialist, Ryan Carlson, Lost Pro rider and team manager, landing 540 Rodeo flips in CA beachbreaks.
