At 7pm on the Saturday evening at Bude we will be showcasing the UK premiere of Below The Surface.
Below The Surface is a movie produced and edited by Andre Paskowski. Andre, who sadly passed away earlier this year, suffered from cancer for years, defying all the doctors predictions, even to his final days. Perhaps it was his passion for movie making, his passion for life that helped him on his way. Either way his final masterpiece moves all emotions from exhilaration to anxiety, fear to passion and love to sadness. It pulls us close to those in the movie and takes us far from the maddening crowds of Europe. Yet still some of the down to earth windsurfing that many of us know is highlighted in a certain section featuring Klaas Voget. Overall the movie portraits Victor Fernandez, to bring his personality to everyone’s hearts, to travel and windsurf with friends of his to his favorite spots in the world. Ultimately this is all achieved and it is without a doubt Andre’s most outstanding movie to date.
Ollie Acton will be on hand to selling a few of the DVD’s, be sure to grab them quickly as they will run out.
Jo Wright, SWA Marketing Manager: “This years Aussie Kiss is set to be the best yet! With some awesome coaches and more sponsors than ever before! We are extremely excited and honoured to be given the opportunity to premier Andre’s movie, I am sure it will be extremely popular with the students. Let’s keep are fingers crossed for wind and sun!
“See you there!”
