Two surf film evenings in aid of environmental research are taking place at the Jill Craigie Cinema on Wednesday May 6 and Friday May 8.
Rick Lomax is trying to raise the funds to complete his study into the construction of green surf boards -and whether they can be made more enviornmentally friendly without adversely affecting their performance.
For this he’s set an elaborate blind testing system where guinea pig surfers will be asked to surf two surfboards, one green and one standard polyurethane/fibreglass, without knowing which is which (psst… one’s green!).
The surf film nights are to raise funds for the experimental surfboards to be shaped and for basic waterproof video equipment -he’s going to film the trials (and he may well accept the use of waterproof kit of any other help as assistance in kind).
Tickets are £2 students and £3 adults on the door and the money will go towards the project, anything left over will be donated to SAS and Surfrider foundation. There will also be a raffle with prizes from Red Bull, Bam (Bamboo Clothing Company) and Discovery Surf School amongst others.
