Thursday 29th February LS/FF x Kinomor present a very special screening & SW Premiere of remastered cult classic, Free Ride hosted at @wtw_newquay

Free Ride was last (officially) shown in Cornwall in 1978 when Three S films toured it and crowds of surfers from across the south west, hungry for the latest dispatch from the world of international surfing, gathered in places like Porthtowan Village Hall. Reels were threaded through the projector and the future that played out on the big screen was burned onto the collective conscience.

The era defining style, power & flow of Shaun Tomson, Mark Richards, Wayne “Rabbit” Bartholomew et al fired the synapses, while the laconic tones of Jan-Michael Vincent and iconic sound track evoked a pivotal moment in time… Rivals jostled for wave and screen time, proponents of the single fin duelled with the new-wave of twin fin riders – sometimes in the same barrel. It was a time of hot talents, burning egos, bright boardshorts and brighter still boards, pushing boundaries,‘bustin down the door’ and celebrating the freedom of the ride. This special screening celebrates 45 Years of Free Ride.
