Held in association with WAVEDREAMER.co.uk and surf movie maker and Richard Gregory, the night saw the DVD launch of NOTCALIFORNIA, a film first made by Richard in Brighton six years ago.
Before the main film was screened, the audience were treated to the micro-moves and featurettes that make up the ‘bonus material’ on the new DVD. These included material filmed in Cornwall, Devon and Ireland with the likes of Alex Knost, Dane Peterson, Tyler Hatzikian, Elliot Dudley, Sam Bleakley and Ashley Braunton and Ben Haworth.
Richard Gregory said: “It was such a treat to see so many of my old mates from Brighton and meet some of the new crew. Thanks to everyone who has encouraged me along the way.
“It was a brilliant to show some of my recent work for the first time and I’m looking forward to the next A1Surf movie night!”
David Somerville from A1Surf.com said: “It was amazing to get so many of the local crew along to our first movie night.
“Seeing NOTCALIFORNIA again was a real pleasure, especially for those who starred in it.
“We have had loads of requests to run another film night in Brighton again, plus take it on the road to other surfing communities, so watch this space.”
A raffle was also held on the night in aid of Surfers Against Sewage, with prizes kindly donated by Nineplus and Chilled Turtle.
And several local surfers, including former English Longboard Champion Jock Paterson, took to the stage to update the crowds on the proposed development to destroy the wave at Brighton Marina.
The DVD of NOTCALIFORNIA is now available to buy on A1Surf.com.
