Surf into the weekend with movies, art and more
NLand Surf Park will screen the surf documentary “Step Into Liquid” at its lagoon this weekend.
The screening is part of Surfeza Sunday, which takes place the last Sunday of every month and includes live music and discounted surf sessions and beer.
DJ Manolo Black, Soulies and Audic Empire will perform July 29, and Cold Ones Pops will provide giveaways while supplies last. Additional limited-edition ice pop flavors will be available for purchase, and a dollar from every Blackberry Honey Lemonade pop sold will benefit the American Honeybee Protection Agency and its efforts to safely relocate bees. Proceeds from a raffle for a Firewire surfboard will benefit EarthxFilm. NLand Brewing Company will serve Surfeza, a light Mexican lager, for $3.
Tickets are $10 for the movie screening only or $40 for the screening, surfing and a dry land surf session. Purchase them in advance through EventBrite.
NLand Surf Park is located at 4836 East Texas 71 in Del Valle.
