Spring is a time of change; solitary winter sessions melt way and familiar faces return to the fold, recharging the line-up with tales of travel, of landscapes scoured and waves scored. It is a time of coming together to exchange ideas, collaborate and forge new plans. In the spirit of the season, and to celebrate the launch of their Spring range, this Easter will see iconic cold water surf company Finisterre opening the doors on their Wheal Kitty workshop for a weekend of films, stories, ideas, inspiration and a few drinks.

Friday March 29th, 8pm Finisterre premiere their first short film, ‘The Road Less Travelled’ followed by a special screening, in aid of charity Waves for Water of Sight | Sound Dir. Mikey DeTemple. Following a band of visionary surfers including Chris Del Moro, Kassia Meador and Ryan Burch and combining stunning cinematography and a haunting soundtrack this film is a modern classic.

Saturday March 30th, 6pm Finisterre host internationally renowned cold water surf photographer and author Tim Nunn as he talks travel, photography, dealing with bears and surfing amongst icebergs for his latest project Numb. 

Tickets to the evening events are free but numbers are extremely limited. To reserve your place, call Tegan at the workshop on: 01872 554 481.

“Thanks to all who have thrown in to make this event happen,” says Finisterre Marketing Director Ernie Capbert. “The London Surf / Film Festival, Espressini of Falmouth, the boys over at Harbour Brewing Company and of course Mr Mikey DeTemple for the film.”

Finisterre’s Spring range of organic cottons, beautiful Biofill Italian yarn knits, award-winning insulated jackets and fjord-tested waterproofs will be on show at the workshop from 10 am each day and the coffee will be waiting. ‘“We believe in challenging convention and designing beautiful, functional products for the cold water surfer. I just got my hands on our spring jumpers and it’s all about the little details,” says Ernie Capbert “The handle is so beautiful to touch, you get out of the sea on a cool spring morning this is something you will naturally want to reach for. When you get it right, it feels so good.”
