Surfing motivates, the sea inspires and the waves move us.

The waves’ noise is music for our ears. Salt in our hair, sand among our feet, the waters thunder, when it breaks. These are the moments, we wishful await.

Since 2016 The „Cine Mar – Surf Movie Night“ presents a hand-picked program of award-winning films in Europes major cities.

Traveling around the globe and chasing the most beautiful waves – this special lifestyle, the exploration of untouched nature and the discovery of new surf is what we are all about. With all of this the conscientious and sustainable handling of our favorite element, the water is always our main focus.

Immerse yourself in our world full of adventure, wild oceans and inspiring personalities and become part of the movement.

Each tour stop is unique with one of our team members, partners or even the filmmakers themselves on site who will guide you through the program. 

Our goal is to create lasting experiences for surfers, people interested in surf culture and like-minded people and to communicate and network in every city. 

Episode 1 - Africa

Beyond by Mario Hainzl & Andreas Jaritz – „An African Surf Documentary“ follows locals along the coast of Marocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Senegal and Gambia into their homes, visit their homes surf spots, and take a look into their surfing lives.

Satori by Rick Wall – Gives you a look at the brotherhood of Dungeons, which is one of the heaviest waves on the planet, a true guts and glory wave. 

Let’s be Frank by Peter Hamblin – A very unorthodox surf movie which presents the life of Frank Solomon. It is not your usual surf movie, rather a blockbuster with some surfing appearances of John John Florence, Jamie O’Brian and many other big characters of the surfing world. 

Episode 2 - Europe

Ritratti di Surf by Luca Merli – It’s a film about surfer, shaper, artist and other characters connected to Italian surf culture.

North of the sun by Inge Wegge and Jørn Ranum – The two spent nine months in the cold, Norwegian winter in an isolated inhabited bay of a remote, arctic island by the coast of Northern Norway facing some incredible waves. 

Under an Artic Sky by Chris Burkard and Sweatpants Media: A film project documenting the journey to the most remote corner of Iceland in the middle of winter in search of perfect surf. A few days in, the worst storm in twenty five years blows through and shuts down the country, turning the search for waves into a life-threatening prospect. 

Episode 3 - South America

Gauchos Del Mar by Julian Azulay & Joaquin Azulay – Gauchos Del Mar follows the story of two brothers as they persue their dream of surfing the American Pacific showing the Continent as a whole, through its different cultures, villages, food, people, animals and landscapes while camping and surfing on their way back home to Argentina. 

Tierra de Patagones by Julian Azulay & Joaquin Azulay – The “Gauchos del Mar” brothers pursue their goal of surfing at one of the southernmost areas of the world: “Isla de los Estados”. They travel with a truck and live in a tent across the Patagonia Region during six months, where they share their experiences with native people and get to know their crafts. 

Alternativa – The Inertia traveled to El Salvador with Kassia Meador, Leah Dawson and Lola Mignot, three outstanding women who are inspiring the next generation of ocean lovers through their alternative approach to both surfing and life. 

Episode 4 - Asia

Rumba:  A rhythmic dance with ‚Spanish and African‘ elements. This is a surf film based out of ‚West Java – Indonesia‘. Many people dream of surfing here, we watch some of the few lucky enough to experience this wave & dance its line.

The Salt Trail, takes us on a voyage and delves into the true meaning of surf travel. Journeying through Indonesia from the crowded points of Bali to the isolation of The Mentawai islands, this film captures the joys and the pains of exploration, and the rewards that will stay with you long after the journey is over. It is a film to stir the soul and stoke the wanderlust and, showcasing some deepest, sweetest tube rides, it’ll have you packing your bags for your own Indian Ocean voyage of discovery.

Beyond the surface Set against the rich hues of India, Beyond The Surface follows Ishita Malaviya, India’s first female surfer, and fellow wave riders Crystal Thornburg-Homcy, Liz Clark, Lauren Hill, Emi Koch, and Kate Baldwin.

High on Life The requirements were clear. We needed a wakepark, a winch, waves and a good time. And we wanted a film with some story that is fun to watch, entertaining and showcases some hand selected tricks of Felix Georgii, Dom Hernler, Parks Bonifay, Dylan Miller, James Windsor, Joe Battleday, Brenton Priestley, Cameron Graham & Tobias Michell.

Frankly, our trip wasn’t about throwing the hardest tricks at all times. It was also about enjoying ourselves and each other so that everyone could do what he loved most. Isn’t it interesting tho how different board sports influence different riding styles? Well anyway, enjoy this wakeboard edit that comes with a little twist.

Episode 5 - North America

In Dancing Days of Dawn by Chris Miyashiro is a debut feature surf documentary sure to leave
you wanting for those early days of stoke. This story is a poetic look into the mind of Chris
Miyashiro, the visionary behind the film. A wild journey to find purpose and meaning, told from
the childlike perspective of an artist. Chris also known as Mowgli was born and raised in Hawaii.
After growing up surfing, skating and doodling in his notebook, Mowgli decided to pursue
something different than his peers. Thus birthed his passion for storytelling. In Dancing Days Of
Dawn is the beginning of a lifelong creative outlet for the young islander.

Surfers‘ Blood by Patrick Trefz 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 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.

Episode 6 - Australia

One Shot by Darren McCagh follows Ord’s own evolution from firefighter to world-renowned surf photographer known for ditching safety and swimming into the jaws of the planet’s fiercest waves to get angles no one else can. Never satisfied, however, Ord knows that, despite his success, he still hasn’t nailed that one shot – the shot he can look back on and remember for the skill, risk and position he had to be in to capture it.
