Join Surfrider Foundation for Southern Blast, a beautiful cinematic celebration of the wild landscapes, abundant marine ecosystems, and local communities that call the Southern Ocean coastlines home.

Featuring footage shot on location in Lutruwita (Tasmania), the film connects with local personalities: from surfers to crayfishers, sustainable ocean businesses, and Traditional Custodians - it covers the unique and diverse communities that coexist alongside marine life and wild landscapes. Southern Blast is a powerful look into the relatively untouched charm of Lutruwita (Tasmania) and the threat posed by a looming fossil fuel industry. 

It wouldn't be a Surfrider film without some magical waveriding moments, featuring sessions with Torren Martyn, Annie Ford, Kyron Rathbone, Zoey Grey and other ocean-loving characters.

Engaging as it is beautiful, Southern Blast has captured the wildness of the Southern Ocean and those who share a deep and integral connection with it. The film uplifts and inspires, leaving audiences with a message: this area is worth protecting, and we all have a role to play in helping to protect it from oil and gas exploration.
