Since its inception in 2006, Surf Nite in SLO has continued to serve as one of those rare events fueled by the energy and enthusiasm of the crowd that attends each year. It is with great excitement that for our 30th Anniversary Festival we will be returning to the big screen at the Fremont Theater to celebrate surfing on the big screen. With drinks in the lobby, live music from Riff Tide surf band, and mingling with other local surfers, join us for what’s been coined the “Rocky Horror Picture Show” for surf and film lovers!This year, we’re excited to present new film, TRILOGY: NEW WAVE with special guest director Andrew Mackenzie

Skate films have been a fundamental part of independent filmmaking since its early origins, allowing any kid the ability to pick up a camera and make content regardless of cost, distribution or fame. It has often been the launchpad to cultural art movements, social change, music and athleticism, but skateboarding has also always been about community. This year, we’re excited to honor this community and its contributions to film with multiple films that celebrate the culture and community of skateboarding.
