Under the Lip: Dispatches from Beyond the Whitewash

July 7th, August 11th and September 15th, 2021

This series explores what it looks like to build a surf culture that is a part of our fragile, messy, creative, political lives on land. The program will take us from Hawai'i to California, South Africa, Iran, and Australia, mapping a diverse and international group of surf cultures.

Benny’s Club is a collective dedicated to creating space for poc and queer folks in surfing. All screenings are free and open to the public.
