The Wight Surf History Surf Movie Night at the Sandpipers Hotel, Freshwater Bay and an awesome swell hits the Island with Compton breaking as good as it gets. Here is the whole sequence of Harrison Wavell getting an awesome little barrel at Compton on Saturday.
Come and join us for an evening of old and new Surf Movies at Sandpipers Hotel, Freshwater Bay, Isle of Wight.
7.30pm Saturday October 9th 2010.
We have a couple of 2010 UK surf movies ‘Fusion’ and ‘Devon Lanes and Longboards’ and will also be featuring the Isle of Wight Surf Club movie made in the very early 1970′s by Annie Macpherson as well as a couple of movies made by Sid Pitman during the 70′s too.
Bring along your own surf movies as we will have a mobile Cinema outside where we aim to be able so show anything that you may have. We will be able to show standard 8 and super 8 sound, VHS (full size and mini), Full and mini DV tape, and DVD disks.
Being a woodwork teacher, Hutch had made his own board, out of plywood naturally, and an invitation to try it at Compton was made. ‘Don’t try to shoot the curl’ he said, ‘just ride the white water’ What the bloody hell did all that mean?? Suffice to say that after half an hour I was exhausted, having totally failed to catch anything let alone ‘shoot the curl’.
