Cold Hawaii Surf & Film Festival
The idea behind the Cold Hawaii Surf & Film Festival is to connect the passion for surfing and its development, desire for movie-making and love for the nature. At the same time we want to show the world our beautiful Thy and invite everyone to try surfing, stand-up paddling, kitesurfing or windsurfing in Denmark and in the whole Scandinavia.
First of all, what is Cold Hawaii?
Cold Hawaii is an area in northern Denmark, that covers over 30 surf spots. There is sand, there is wind, there is water (pretty cold) and there are waves. But there are no palm trees, and no bikini surfing (unless you dare).
For us, Cold Hawaii is a lifestyle. A lifestyle, which gives us an opportunity to celebrate our love for the ocean and for the nature. A lifestyle, that slowed our life down, the day we tasted it for the first time. A lifestyle that let us be 100% ourselves.
Cold Hawaii Film Festival is a mixture of our dreams and ideas. We came up with the concept in November 2014 and the first edition took place already in April 2015. The success of the first edition of the festival have given us a big portion of motivation, so we decided to introduce it as an annual event.
The unique factor about our festival is, that the competing movies must be recorded within the boarders of Scandinavia and only during the cold months (November- April). The competition is dedicated to both amateurs and professionals. Every year we receive amazing projects, that make us laugh, make us cry or make us stop everything we do and go surfing. Just check out the movies and you will know what we are talking about.
Cold Hawaii Film Festival is a weekend-long event, which offers different activities, including surf competition, live music, Beach Trash Art competition for kids, and more…
Since April 2018 it is run under the Nord Creative wings.
