This was the night when approximately 250 past and present members/associates of the Wessex from the last 50 years came together to catch up and reminisce over a few too many beers! The night included the first showing of our 50 years documentary, lifetime membership awards (Still some to be awarded at a later date TBC as they had unfortunately already left and were unaware due to late running on the night), raffle, DJ`s Si Gracia & Oli Penwarden and two great live music sets by Peach Beach, followed by Surfin Dave & The Absent Legends. It was an absolute belter of night. Many thanks to everyone who helped make this happen and to all that came down for the evening. Also thanks to the videographers Rich Wooller & Harry Yeoman from the Bournemouth Arts Institute for giving up their evening last minute to film the event and put together this great little edit.+ More details

www.adeepershadeofblue.com A Deeper Shade of Blue is the award-winning new film from legendary surfing film maker Jack McCoy, the man behind cult titles such as Occy the Occumentary and Blue Horizon, and one of the most respected film makers in the industry. Set to inspire, educate and update, the much-anticipated release is the most comprehensive story of surfing ever told. The biggest film of McCoy’s career, A Deeper Shade of Blue combines innovative cinematography techniques with a unique narrative structure, to uncover and encapsulate the history and culture of surfing like never before. Not a ‘surf movie’ but a film about the art’s deepest roots, it tells the story of surfing as Hawaii’s greatest gift to the world, from its ancient beginnings to a Waikiki tourist attraction, all the way through to today’s $6 billion-a-year global industry. Told in eleven cleverly entwined chapters and featuring narratives from today’s leading surfers Jordy Smith, Jamie O’Brien and Stephanie Gilmore, the film describes the evolution of surfboards, from wooden blanks in Hawaii to today’s mind-blowing inventions for every type of wave. It also describes how two female surfers played a hugely significant part in surfing’s rise to worldwide fame – Hawaiian Princess Kaiulani who resurrected surfing in the late 1800s after a Missionary ban, and Malibu surfing legend ‘Gidget’ who brought surfing to the masses in the late 1950s through a movie and TV shows. Before Gidget burst into the mass media, there were less than a thousand surfers in the world. Set to inspire and move surf fanatics and non-surfers alike, A Deeper Shade of Blue is backed by an exhilarating soundtrack from the likes of Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Jack Johnson and Paul McCartney, and features ground-breaking camerawork to bring viewers an unprecedented experience of the waves, enabling them to see and feel the waves as only a surfer can.

www.adeepershadeofblue.com A Deeper Shade of Blue is the award-winning new film from legendary photographer and surfing film maker Jack McCoy, the man behind cult hits like Occy the Occumentary and Blue Horizon. Set to touch, move and inspire surf rippers, and inform and delight the rest of us, this much-anticipated release is the most comprehensive story of surfing ever told. The biggest boldest film of McCoy’s career, A Deeper Shade of Blue combines innovative cinematography with a unique narrative structure, to reveal and encapsulate the historic arc and modern trajectory of surfing culture. Not a ‘surf movie’ but a film about the art’s deepest roots, it presents the story of surfing as native Hawaiian culture's greatest gift to the world - from ancient beginnings to early 20th century popularity as a Waikiki tourist attraction, to today’s billion dollar a-year global action sports goliath. Told in eleven cleverly entwined chapters featuring narratives from star professional surfers Jordy Smith, Jamie O’Brien and Stephanie Gilmore, the film describes the evolution of surfboards, from wooden planks in Hawaii to the latest mind-blowing hi and lo-tech vehicles, expanding the concept of wave riding, connected by the traditional Hawaiian spirit and practice of Aloha, the beating heart of surf culture. Women will be excited to learn that two female surfing heroines' love of this most difficult art played a hugely significant part in surfing’s rise to worldwide fame – Hawaiian Princess Kaiulani who resurrected surfing in the late 1800s after a Missionary ban, and Malibu surfing legend ‘Gidget’ who brought surfing to the masses in the late 1950s through a Hollywood film and TV series. Before Gidget burst into the mass media, there were less than a thousand surfers in the world, afterward, millions. Featured surfers: Jamie O'Brien, The Marshall Brothers - Chad & Trace, Manoa Drollet, Stephanie Gilmore, Jordy Smith, Tom Wegener, Derek Hynd, Marti Paradisis and Terry Chung. A Deeper Shade of Blue is backed emotionally by an exhilarating soundtrack from the likes of Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Kaukahi with Jack Johnson and Paul McCartney. The ground-breaking underwater camerawork allows viewers to enjoy unprecedented and unforgettable experiences, seeing and feeling the waves as only a top surfer can.
