See you there and more information to follow in the coming weeks.
The year 2010 saw the birth of the brand Bahara Surfboards. It was Paul Abbas' desire to learn how to surf in a country which lacked surfboards, thus beginning the shaping
of his primary and first board. One board led to another and not long after grew a passion and addiction for the craft.
Humbled by the support of those around him, and through his dedication, Paul went against all odds and became the first Professional surfboard shaper in Lebanon and the region to date. Check his works when he does final stages for the custom boards he's shaping for the event.
Omar Greg is a surfer, painter and architect. Growing up in Anfeh, a charming little town Northern coast of Lebanon, Omar was
connected with the water since childhood. Surf culture is poignant in Omar's aesthetics with the use of vibrant colors & bold forms. Experience his talents this November when he paints on the finished board by Bahara Surfboards.
LEBANESE OUTDOORS FILM FESTIVAL (LOFF)
WHAT IS LOFF ABOUT
Lebanese Outdoors Film Festival is the very first official outdoor sports film festival in Lebanon and the Arab world. Founded in 2020 by a team of adventure and film enthusiasts.
Nowadays filmmaking is a dominant form of expression, and sports exist in every culture all around the world. Therefore, in addition to film screenings, LOFF will have various networking opportunities with film and sports industry quests as well as actors and athletes, as it proposes to bring together people from different communities and backgrounds to one place, opening the barriers to cultural exchange and providing a space for debates and discussions.
LOFF has curated a series of Lebanese surf films created by their community and will be shown during the last evening of the event.
