Celebrate the eleventh anniversary of the Surfalorus Film Festival, which will be held from September 18–21, 2022, during the Eastern Surf Championships and is sponsored by North Carolina Aquariums and Jennette’s Pier. Mike Leech’s depiction of local icon Jesse Hines and the brand-new documentary Waterman about Hawaiian statesman Duke Kahanamoku are among the films in Surfalorus’s impressive program. For the Dream will be screened with us on the final night as a special guest, Ben Gravy.

The event begins on Sunday at Outer Surf with a special showing of HINES, followed by a book release party for North of Nowhere: The Surf Photography of Mike Nelson at Swells’a Brewing. For visitors of Surfalorus, Matt Pruett and Mike Nelson will be present to discuss the book and autograph copies.

On Tuesday, September 20 at Jennette’s Pier, Sweet Adventure will be screened to complete the program. A few surf culture icons make cameo appearances in this quirky film, which is expertly narrated by action sports veteran Salema Masekela and has slick imagery, carefully chosen music, and well-designed edits. This is a guide on how to experience the incredible queues and waves of El Sal if you haven’t before. After the movie, there will be a Q&A with the directors.

But in order to keep the creative juices going, no festival would be complete without a few fantastic short films. Following a special memorial service honoring Cecil Lear, co-founder of the ESA, Shorts Block One is shown on Monday night. With a few stops at unidentified sites in between, the shorts block includes movies from Wrightsville Beach to Scotland and from Turkey to Brazil. Everything from a caper comedy to a trip to the “Cramaverse” is included in this grab bag. The same wild reach and screenings of Shorts Block Two are scheduled for Wednesday at 4 p.m. at Jennette’s Pier.

For all screenings, tickets are currently available at Additionally, an all-access pass is available for just $25. The Outer Banks Visitors Bureau supports the 11th annual Surfalorus Film Festival, which is sponsored by North Carolina Aquariums, Jennette’s Pier, the Cucalorus Film Foundation, and Dare Arts.
