Surfing Beach Party on Friday, July 17 in Salem


Celebrate summer and bask in SurfLand
Friday, July 17, 2009 | 4:00 - 10:00 pm

Inspired by the PEM’s acclaimed exhibition, SurfLand: Photographs by Joni Sternbach, the Museum will host an evening of beach related fun for all ages. Learn to surf from the pros, build sand sculptures, design your own surfboard, be dazzled by surfing cinematography, and dance the night away under the stars. Enjoy an array of summer fare, from veggie burgers and hot dogs, to fresh fruit and cool drinks. Highlights include:

§ Learn surfing techniques and New England surfing tips from Brickhouse surf school instructors.

§ Check out eco-friendly surfboard design and building demonstrations with Kevin Cunningham of Spirare Surfboards.

§ Build fantastical sand sculptures and learn advanced sculpting tricks from artist, Kristie Haupt.

§ Show off your skills and duel your friends on our arcade surfing simulator

§ Be swept away by our surfing film line up, including The Women and the Waves, Step into Liquid, and Surf’s Up
