Want to support a great charity and watch some cool surf flicks, too? Then tonight, November 8, head to the Save The Waves Film Festival for an intimate evening of live music, an acclaimed short films program, and the world premiere of SE7EN SIGNS, the new surf travel epic from director Nathan Myers and executive producer Taylor Steele.
