LA Is Open, So We Threw An E.A.S.T Watch Party

Boy were we glad to see your faces.

Film making is a tedious art.

Our team spends months agonizing over every painstaking detail to bring you what we hope is an entertaining, high-quality surf cinema. When producing a project like the Electric Acid Surfboard Test, one of the lights at the end of the tunnel is sharing it with our supporters in person. 2020 changed that, and it’s been quite some time since we’ve been able to see your beautiful, smiling faces in the flesh.

We’re not ones to count our chickens, but it appears that those days are over.

We partnered with our friends at Tolago Seltzer and Burb to bring you a slate of watch parties celebrating our most recent Electric Acid Surfboard Test starring Mason and Coco Ho. Last night we took over The Rose Room in L.A. for a high octane viewing session of Episode 3.

The libations flowed, people embraced one another, and for the first time in over a year, all seemed right with the world.

While Mason is unfortunately in Indonesia surfing 12 hour days and logging sub-five-minute screen times, we had the film’s stunning co-star, Ms. Coco Ho, in attendance for what Directors Ashton Goggans and Sam Moody have dubbed, ‘The Coco Episode.’

L.A. showed out for us, packing the house to share a drink and take in our latest project.

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend. Without our supporters, none of this would be possible, and for that we are forever grateful. Scroll to see what you missed, then clear your schedules for this week’s upcoming Watch Parties:

Episode 4: Tuesday June 29th, 8 PM at JD’s in San Clemente, CA

Episode 5: Thursday July 1st, 7 PM at Pourhouse in Oceanside, CA

Thanks for coming, and don’t forget your exclusive E.A.S.T. tee. Photo by Joey Soboleski.
