The Wavescape Festival was born of a love for surfing and ocean culture, and the simple idea of sharing these feelings with an audience. Eleven years on, we present a range of film, music and art events in South Africa, with the aim of having fun, building community and promoting conservation.

Wavescape runs in Durban in July and Cape Town in November and December. Our presenting partner in 2016 is Pick n Pay, and supporting partners are The Save Our Seas Foundation, WWF-SASSI, Jack Black Brewing Company, PETCO, Marine Stewardship Council, Fast Company and Men’s Health. We are also working in collaboration with WESGRO and Red Bull Media House on the Wavescape Shortcuts Film Contest.

In July, we work in partnership with the Durban International Film Festival.
