Wednesday, June 21st is not only the first day of summer, it's also International Go Surf Day, and we will be celebrating right here in Missoula.

The Strongwater Shootout is going down on Wednesday from noon to 6 p.m. at Brennan's Wave. Join us for music, a BBQ, surf jam, board demos and a free ride contest!

After a rad day of surfing, we'll be headed to the brand new Locals Only bar, at 147 West Broadway, for an after party and Missoula premiere of the surf movie "Distance Between Dreams." The flick will begin at 8 p.m. and donations are encouraged at the door.

In Distance Between Dreams, the most historic year in big wave surfing comes to life through the eyes of iconic surfer Ian Walsh, as he sets mind and body in motion to redefine the upper limits of what’s considered ‘rideable.' With massive El Niño powered swells building across the Pacific, Ian, Shaun, D.K. and Luke Walsh band together in a way that only brothers can to progress surfing to unimaginable heights.
