The El Niño Effect, a California Surf Film

While El Niño wreaked havoc on California in 2015-16, it created a winter playground for surfers.

This surfing film showcases up and coming local California bands and the dedicated surfers (average Joes and big-wave pros) who charged El Niño swells on shortboards, longboards, stand-up paddle boards (SUPs), kite boards, body boards, rafts and even kayaks.

Includes bonus highlights from the Mavericks Big Wave Surfing Contest.

Surf features locations in Orange, Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Mateo, San Francisco, Marin, Sonoma and Mendocino counties.

NOTE: Outside of the Mavs contest, no local/amateur surfers or spots were harmed OR NAMED in the making of this documentary. Before anything, the author respects all local surfers and their hometown breaks, and left them anonymous for just that reason.

All music in the film is original and used with permission from the following artists: The Olés, The Spaces Between, Carbon City Lights, Sun Daes, No Flow, Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray, The Earthtones, The Jesus Ship, DJ Underbelly, Weapons of Mass Creation and more.
