Catchin A Cold Exhibit

Surf the Greats and Vans Canada have joined forces to engage our surf communities all over the Great Lakes to celebrate cold water surfing through a social media contest during the winter months. With an overwhelming number of entries, we would like to further recognize the talent, commitment and stoke from the photographers who entered the contest and who have been documenting surfing on the Great Lakes over the past few years. We are pleased to announce a month-long exhibition showcasing the work of 16 artists representing all five of the Great Lakes.

Catchin A Cold

In the spirit of celebration and honouring our communities, Surf the Greats is officially opening their doors to the public with a party on Thursday, June 29th. On the decks, DJ Great Lake Shark and a live acoustic set by Gold Complex. On tap the finest beer from Sweetgrass Brewing Co, with mixed drinks and refreshments courtesy of RISE Kombucha.

The exhibition opens with the Grand Opening of Surf the Greats in Toronto on Thursday, June 29th and stays up until Saturday, July 29th, 2017. Come celebrate our love for surfing and cold water with us!

This is a free event but tickets are required. Get your tickets ASAP as they go quick.
