The Festival is held at the Courtyard King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel in the heart of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.


Parking is available at the hotel for $5, and there is free parking in town, walking distance from the event.


The Festival is a creation of Chad Campbell and his friends & family.  Chad, a surfer and filmmaker himself, founded the Festival in 2003 as a means of bringing together Hawaii's surfing family for a communal love of all things surf! 

The Festival has always been a forum for independent filmmakers to showcase their work to a stoked audience.  Additionally, each year the Fest benefits the surfing community on the Big Island and beyond.  The Fest has raised money for various organizations including Kulana Huli Honua, the Betty Kanuha Foundation, Protect Kohanaiki Ohana, Seathos, and the Surfrider Foundation.
