Yallingup's Surfilm channels surfboards

Busselton Dunsborough Times

Surfboards are creating a pathway to the Yallingup Surfilm Festival next month.

One-off painted surfboards by renowned surf artists, including past Quicksilver International artist Peter Webb and well-known local artist Jos Myers, are on display from Perth to the South West.

The boards have been donated to benefit SurfAid International with the surfboards up for auction as part of the festivities which run between January 20 and 22.

The artworks can be viewed locally at Bunkers Beach Cafe, Flying Fish Cove Winery, Surfside Surfshack, Samudra Knee Deep Restaurant and The Cape Winebar in Dunsborough.

The boards will then move to Clancy’s Fish Pub in Dunsborough to be displayed together during the festival before a live auction on January 22.

Meanwhile, festival organisers have announced another film to the event and a WA premiere.

Thirty Thousand is a surf film shot in Africa, documenting the journey of two surfers who travelled 30,000km down the west coast, surfing in Morocco, Western Sahara, Senegal, Liberia, Angola, Namibia and South Africa.

It will join several international films announced as finalists at the program launch, including pieces from Chile and Finland.

Film screenings will be held at Clancy’s Fish Pub Dunsborough and Samudra throughout the weekend of the festival.

Tickets are on sale at the website, www.yallingupsurfilm.com.au and from NAB Bank branches in Dunsborough, Busselton and Margaret River.
