Plan on hitting the surf this summer?

Take a camera along and you could win $5000 and slabs of Coopers beer.

Australia’s largest independent family-owned brewery, Coopers, has teamed with surfing magazine Stab to run the new “Real to Reel” film competition.

“We’re shining the spotlight on the men and women behind the lens who capture the images that inspire generations of surfers,” Coopers National Marketing Manager Kate Dowd said.

“Australia has a long history of great surfing movies and docos.

“We’re hoping to build on this collection with original and captivating short films that tap into the heart of our amazing surf culture. Local legends, favourite breaks and the old boards we can’t let go of – it’s all part of the story of surfing.”

The Real to Reel competition is open to film makers across Australia with entries closing on January 31, 2022.

The 5 finalist entries will be screened on February 15 at The Park Hotel, Suffolk Park in New South Wales. The winner will take home $5000 in cash, slabs of Coopers Pacific Pale Ale and be immortalised in Stab Magazine.

Tom Bird, co-founder of Stab Magazine, said the organisation was thrilled to be partnering with Coopers for this unique surf film initiative.

“Surf cinema has a captive audience. We are delighted to do our small part in celebrating those documenting surfing with creativity and talent, and who don’t get nearly enough credit,” Tom said.
