Surfrider Foundation Santa Cruz invites our ocean-lovers and surfers to come and celebrate the release of the documentary Havana Libre.

Tuesday, March 8 2022, 6pm!

Please RSVP here so we know you’re coming.

About the Film:

In Cuba, where people fled en masse from Fidel Castro’s regime, surfing and other water activities have been banned for decades. Today, surfing exists in a murky legal gray area and is viewed with suspicion by the Cuban authorities. Despite these challenges, a group of passionate Cuban surfers is determined to carve out a place for surfing in the country’s culture of athletic excellence.
