Once again The Surfer’s Path is a proud sponsor of the annual San Sebastian Surfilm Festibal in the Basque Country, Spain. Now in its 10th year, this event is the most diverse, entertaining, eye-opening, hilarious, wine-and-beer-soaked, gastronomically blessed, cultural happening in European surfing.
This year’s lineup of films and events is shaping up to be pretty spectacular. Here’s a sneak preview of some of what’s planned, starting May 31st and going on until June 10th.
This is our official image for our 10th anniversary.
