Rob Machado's Melali Premier @ Hurley HQ Costa Mesa 19/11/10

I was super excited to hear that Rob Machado would be playing with his band at the screening of his new surf film Melali at the Hurley HQ in Costa Mesa. I am a huge fan, not only of his surfing but of his humanitarian work too. He does a lot of work with Waves for Water, a company set up by pro surfer Jon Rose, which provides water filtration systems to impoverished communities that have no access to clean drinking water. He is also a very cool guy, and an amazingly talented surfer so I wasn't going to miss this opportunity to see one of my surf idols in the flesh!

The combination of the live music with the movie playing live alongside worked really well. There are some beautiful shots and some sick surfing by Rob himself, Kelly and Dane Reynolds amongst others, and the music heightened the whole viewing experience. There were free tacos beforehand and yummy drinks all evening courtesy of Sambazon, one of Rob's sponsors. Oh and not to mention meeting the man yes I had a good time!

Here are a selection of photos from the event for your viewing. Enjoy!
