South East Asia’s one and only surf film festival, Ombak Bali celebrated it’s 7th edition last weekend, wowing the crowds with three awesome nights crammed with fabulous films and great vibes. Ombak Bali Surf Film Festival 2014 at La Plancha Bali is a WRAP & has left the beach.

We’ve enjoyed the 3 days of surf movies & crispy crump music to the fullest. It was a huge success and we heard through the grapevine that next year is promising. Our absolute favorite film “Hawaiian, the legend of Eddie Aikau” is def one to watch again. One of the strongest and most personal surf documentaries of the last few years, exploring the life and legend of Hawaiian big wave surfer Eddie Aikau.

We’d like to write a little word to Errol & Jolinde, La Plancha & all the directors and starsurfers and the Ombak Bali crew: clap clap clap clap, WE LIKE! what a BANG UP job you guys did AGAIN!!

Big thanks to our we-like Bali guest photographers >> Julia Krysiak & Melanie Uhkoetter

+ Ombak Bali Surf Filmfestival Bali  +

For the last two days La Plancha has been full of cool peeps & bean bags. The 7th edition of Ombak Bali kicked off on Friday under a beautiful clear sky & slight breeze at La Plancha Bali. Many people gathered under the palmtrees to watch amazing films like ‘The Salt Trail’, ‘Chasing Unicorns’, ‘Out in the line-up’ and many more. Beautiful nights with great people & popcorn. Already stoked for tomorrow & already sad that it’s almost over. Make sure you don’t miss out on another night full of epic surf films like ‘Missing’ with Mick Fanning and ‘Hawaiian the legend of Eddie Aikau’

Get stoked already for the last night!!

Ombak Bali Filmfestival // Day 1

Ombak Bali is kicking off tonights event with two visual gems. The Salt Trail delves into the true meaning of surf travel. Journeying through Indonesia from the crowded breaks of Bali to the isolation of the Mentawais.

Second highlight of the night is The Old, the Young and the Sea, an adventurous road trip along the Atlantic Coast of France, Spain and Portugal. The film frames a vivid snapshot of European post-modern coastal culture, which is significantly influenced by the hippie heritage of the 60s, modern surfing pop industry and the vital relationship of coastal inhabitants with mother nature.
