SURFERS' BLOOD // SURFJACK by Christopher Labzda

Join us for a Screening Under the Stars and the Oahu Premier of Surfers' Blood - a film by Patrick Trefz, at the Surfjack April 6th 6PM.  

HEADLAND in conjunction with Krammer & Stoudt and Surfjackis proud to host the Honolulu Premiere of the highly praised film SURFERS' BLOOD by award winning Photographer and Filmmaker Patrick Trefz. The film premieres Thursday, April 6th, 6PM at Surfjack. Be sure to arrive early to check out the Krammer & Stoudt pop-up shop, open 11AM - 9PM. 

SURFERS’ BLOOD tells the universal story of true individuals that share deep bloodlines connected to the sea. From the old world fishing history of the rugged Basque Coast via oar and surfboard shaper Patxi Oliden, to the modern metropolis of San Francisco and the eccentric computer shapes of Apple fame designer Thomas Meyerhoffer. A Sonoma Valley Art Museum that exhibits hydrodynamic surfboards via avant-garde curator/surfer Richard Kenvin, to 3 time Mavericks big wave champ Darryl 'Flea' Virostko's struggle to overcome an almost fatal meth addiction and the bittersweet loss that came with it.

Date: Thursday, April 6th, 2017

Where: Surfjack. 412 Lewers St, Honolulu, HI 96815

Screening: 6PM - 9PM

Krammer & Stoudt Pop-up: 11AM - 9PM

"For me, the film began as a personal interest. I see my work as an anthropologist would. Here are these interesting profiles, from figures of different eras and places - from the most preserved villages of the Basque region, to the technological heart of San Francisco, to Santa Cruz - where you have this lineage and this passion for the sea. Let’s see how we can find what makes them different. Let's find what they share." - Patrick Trefz, Surfermag.com
