We were stoked to team up with McTavish for the first time to present the exclusive Gold Coast screening of their recent short film SEEK on the outdoor cinema Wednesday 12th of December at the Burleigh Brewing Taphouse.

The film took place in North Sumatra in Simeulue at Aura Surf Resort and eloquently captures the feeling of how a successful surf trip hinges on the prospect of swell; the sort of anticipation that surfers know all too well.

Locals far and wide flooded the taphouse and all enjoyed the new Burleigh Mid-Tide and Blonde beers while Pequeña Cocina supplied tacos for the hundreds. Matthew Armitage played some great original tunes and the vibe was right as we waited on the sunset to kickstart the outdoor SEEK screening. 

The McTavish crew were slightly nervous looking at the weather radar to see if the forecasted rain would hold off for the feature film. Rain or shine the vibe was strong amongst the 450+ crowd. The McTavish crew introduced the movie and Christian Barker spoke about their trip, the pitfalls they faced filming in a tropical climate and the boards they rode shaped by Ben McTavish. 

12 minutes later, smiles were wide and the cheers were loud. The night was wrapped up with a few giveaways to three lucky winners before the rain had just started to fall, which couldn’t have been timed more perfectly. 

It was a rad event and the first of many planned for the Burleigh Brewing Taphouse in Burleigh Heads. Thanks to all who made it out on hump day. Hope to to see you soon and if you missed out, check out some of the photos at the Taphouse by surfing photographer Charlie Cullen. See you for the next one!
