The Ombak Bali crew has searched far and wide to find the most awesome, awe-inspiring films of the genre, films that go beyond the waves and show how surfing can mobilize, inspire and fuel social change. Highlights include Proximity the latest from Taylor Steele, as well as Endless Winter II and Gaza Surf Club. As always a stunning collection of shorts will run alongside the main features. The festival embraces innovative, adventurous and independent filmmaking and its focus is on recent work. Both talented newcomers and more established directors are being celebrated during the three-day event.  The festival is worth a visit to appreciate surfing and the many talents that are associated with this sport.
