September Fest with Alesmith Brewing Co. and XTERRA SURF

by Steve Ramsthaler October 19, 2017

September 30th, 2017 marked the inaugural September Fest hosted by XETRRA SURF and Alesmith Brewing Co. The event consisted of live music, craft beer, food and over a dozen San Diego local surf brands set up with their newest merchandise on sale. 

The event kicked off with a performance by DJ Binx. He wowed the crowd with custom scratching and house favorites. Once the crowd was warmed up, Modern History Band took the stage as the sun went down. With their mix of beach rock and psychedelic fusion, the stage was set for the films that were to follow.
 
The main event of the night was XTERRA SURF's video premiere of Slipping Into Darkness featuring Mikey O’Shaughnessy, Kilian Garland, Sunny Garcia, Ricky Whitlock and more. Surfers submitted their best clips from the year to staff editors Sean Santiago and Pat Westman of Santi Creative Group to cut the final reel. Needless to say, the packed venue was fired up to see the XTERRA SURF team’s performance airing on the big screen. If you were not able to make the event, we have it here for your viewing pleasure. Feast your eyes on the long anticipated full length feature of: Slipping Into Darkness.

When we decided to create a collaboration surfboard with a local San Diego shaper, our first choice was working with Dan O’Hara at SOLID Surf out of Ocean Beach. Dan who has been shaping for over 15 years, started in his parents’ garage in New York. He eventually left the garage behind and moved SOLID out to sunny San Diego, where Dan fully immersed himself in yoga, meditation and west coast surfing.
