The surf movie festival center for filmmakers

The Global Surf Film Festival Collective is the new planetary organization formed to help surf filmmakers submit to multiple worldwide surf film festivals at once without the hassle of sending their DVD’s around the globe. If you’re a surf movie director, you can submit your salted water films easily at gsffc.org, after completing a special form. Once the form is submitted, you will be emailed directions to securely upload your film and other supporting documents to our private viewing site which is only accessible to the festival programmers. Each festival has its own unique program and independently chooses their film lineup. Acceptance to one festival does not necessarily imply acceptance to all. Individual festival progammers will reach out to filmmakers direct to secure films for their lineup.

Owen Wright sets the standard at the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach 2012

The Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach 2012 is on and the first day of competition saw clean three-to-four foot (1 metre) waves at the primary venue of Bells Beach. No alarms and no surprises. The top seeds are through to Round 3. Owen Wright was in sensational form during his opening round bout with Patrick Gudauskas and Bede Durbidge, posting the highest heat total of the round, a 17.93 out of a possible 20. “It’s really turning on out there,” Wright said. “After watching that first heat and noticing it was slow I figured we would be on in terms of waves. Bells is always slow heat, fast heat, slow heat, fast heat. It was good to get into a rhythm and wrack up a few solid scores.” Consistently one of the best-performing goofy-footers on the elite ASP World Championship Tour, Wright draws inspiration from 1999 ASP World Champion and goofy-footed legend Mark Occhilupo. Coincidently, Occhilupo is the last goofy-footer to claim the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach, back in 1998. “I’m feeling in form and I’ve actually been drawing a lot of inspiration from Occy (Mark Occhilupo) at Margaret River last week,” Wright said.

Taj, real quick

As we recently said in our Bells Beach preview, Taj Burrow is probably the most consistent surfer of the last decade besides Kelly Slater. Unfortunately for Burrow, his career happened to coincide with the age of Slater and Andy Irons. Otherwise, he would have won a world title by now. His rookie year,…
