SUP Magazine’s Chasing Gold to Premier in Newport Beach Next Month

Join us for a special screening of our new film, Chasing Gold, plus a Q&A with Director Brent Deal and US SUP Team

The Newport Beach Film Festival, in partnership with eyeDeal pictures, presents a special screening of SUP Magazine’s Chasing Gold, a documentary about the American Standup Paddling and Paddleboarding Championship team. The film will screen at the Regency Lido Theater in Newport Beach on August 11 at 7pm.

For three years in a row, Team Australia has taken home the gold at the ISA World SUP and Paddleboarding Championships, an Olympic -style event featuring an international cast of some of the very best in the sport. No team from the United States has ever won.

Last year the US SUP Team, led by world-class athletes like Izzi Gomez, Danny Ching, Candice Appleby, Sean Poynter and Jack Bark, defied the odds to beat out Team Australia, which dominated the competition for three straight years prior. Filmmaker Brent Deal was there to catch the dramatic battle from all angles and, here he weaves together the personal and passionate moments that molded this group of highly competitive individuals into a winning team. Come watch the USA team reach for glory as they attempt to bring home gold in this inspirational documentary. Director Brent Deal and the US SUP Team will be onsite for a Q&A after the screening.
