Provided by:

Event runs from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM


Over the past 45 years, legendary filmmaker Jack McCoy has travelled and produced films in the most exotic locations where he unearthed some of the best waves on the planet whilst working with the who’s who of surfing royalty… McCoy's interactive ‘talk-story events had held audience’s captive around the world, with a mix of story-telling, never seen before film clips and photographs from his illustrious career in which he produced 25 multiple award-winning feature films including Tubular Swells, Storm Rider, Green Iguana, the Occumentary, Blue Horizon and A Deeper Shade of Blue. McCoy feels music is 50 per cent of his film experience and will delve into how he was able to create soundtracks that have been etched into the minds of his fans forever. Artists such as Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, INXS, Iggy Pop, and Jack Johnson are featured throughout the films. The untold stories (until now) behind the collaborations will go down in surfing folklore. Throughout the tour, McCoy will be joined by the likes of Mark Occhilupo, Tom Carroll, Pam Burridge and Dion Agius to share their journey to the top of the surfing world. Following the talk story, a band will take centre stage and some of Australia’s best up and coming talent who will rock the house down.
