. Pasaia 30.07

Ondartxo is pure magic. Anyone entering this space will feel something special at the sight of the amazing project held in this ancient shipyard from the 50’s. A living space dedicated in body and soul –thanks to its members. to recover the fantastic legacy of shipbuilding in the Basque Country.

An Outstanding Program:  European premiere of a restored version of Pacific Vibrations, the classic film by John Severson, which showcases the magic 70s, the link between psychedelic music and surfing. Then, Mikal Cronin, in concert, a surfer from Laguna Beach, to finish with Ayo Silver djs.

As surfers, we value the technology applied in shipbuilding, as we value the art of sculpting surf boards. The perfect association of tradition and modernity, of Albaola and Surfilmfestibal to open to our public the door to this spot, definitely a benchmark in the marine environment.
