We’re stoked to attend the red carpet world premiere event of “Saltwater Green,” produced by Jeremy Briggs, brother of Becker Team Rider Greg Briggs, this Friday, October 25th at La Paloma Theatre in Encinitas, CA.
A fast-paced longboard surfing movie and Briggs’s second longboard film, “Saltwater Green” features 3X World Champion Colin McPhillips, 2X and current World Champion Taylor Jensen, and 2006 World Champion Josh Constable riding both single fins and tri-fins.
Enjoy tons of gorgeous individual profile sequences, showcasing these talented longboard surfers riding their home breaks here in California, as well as in Australia. It features a perfect combination of traditional longboarding and performance longboarding.
The movie also stars California standouts Brendan White, Steven Newton, Noah Shimabukuro, Greg Briggs, and Tommy Witt with some pretty amazing moves.
You come out with a deeper appreciation of what it means to be a surfer and the talent it takes to be the kind that stands out from the others.
There will be two showings: one at 7pm and one at 9pm. Tickets are $12 at the door.
Hope to see you there!

Many of you may already know Creed with accolades under his belt including former U/18 Australian Champion (2010), Runner-up U/16 Australian Titles (2009), and former winner of Taj’s Small Fries, Occy Grom Comp and Grom Search, but 18-year Australian surfer Creed McTaggart is just starting.
Get a sense of Creed’s surfing in a latest video, The Black & White Edits, which is a beautiful display of Creed’s surfing.
According to a review by Surfing Magazine: “Before the Hipster Police arrive and draw their weapons, allow us to forewarn. Yes, this entire edit is in black and white. Yes, it is pervaded with lifestyle clips. And yes, there are grainy film filters. But if any of that bothers you, maybe you should take a step back and look at the actual surfing. Creed’s got one of the best styles in the game and we ain’t talking hairdos. The slob at 1:54 is a good example of his skatey panache. Like Mason Ho, Creed is often a tracktop-less wonder. As the clip comes of age, we see Creed comboing bowls without the help of a kicktail. It’s enough to have even the sergeant of the HP surrender his badge, buy a fedora and become a fan of all things Creed McTaggert.”
We couldn’t agree more. The surfing is pretty rad and breathtaking… Creed is pretty inspired as he thrashes his way around Western Australia, jamming turns and airs in every possible pocket. It’s no wonder why he is by far one of the best 18 year olds in the world today.
