Wavescape Surf and Ocean Festival 2023
We’re super excited to announce that we’ll be partnering with Wavescape for this year’s Wavescape Surf and Ocean Festival, presented by Vans.
This is a massive highlight for us every year and for the 2023 edition Wavescape are curating an incredible 13 events that will run over 3 weeks from 2 until 24 March.
The festival will include open air film screenings with The Galileo Open Air Cinema and others, beach cleanups, Blue Oceans filmmaking workshop, the Slide Night evening of ocean talks, the Board Meeting family and board swap day, and the annual Wavescape Artboard Project, comprising an exhibition of artistic surfboards auctioned for ocean charities.
The Wavescape Artboard Project returns in full force with 10 one-of-kind surfboards upon which 10 South African artists are working their magic. We’re super stoked to host this event at Jack Black’s Taproom, and you’ll be able to join us for this on Wednesday 22 March.
The artists include Fhatuwani Mukheli, Marie-Louise Koen, Amy- Lee Tak, Dbongz, Justin Southey, Liberty Battson, Lee-ann Heath, Lucie de Moyencourt, Martin Lund and of course Brett Murray.
Other events we’ll be hosting at the Taproom includes the Quiz Night running on 9 March as well as The Board Meeting & Expo on 18 March.
