Legendary film maker Jack McCoy will bring his acclaimed surf talk and jam event to Lennox next month as part of an East coast tour.

Described as 'a night of rock 'n' roll and tales from the tube' the interactive event at the Lennox Head Cultural Centre will feature a mix of story-telling, and never before seen film clips and photographs from McCoy's 45-year career that has produced 25 multiple award winning feature films including Tubular Swells, Storm Rider, Green Iguana, the Occumentary, Blue Horizon and A Deeper Shade of Blue.

McCoy feels music is a big part of his film experiences, so soundtracks from artists such as Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, INXS, Iggy Pop and Jack Johnson feature throughout the films.

McCoy will be joined by special guests Derek Hynd, Dion Agius and Dave Rastovich who will share their journey to the top of the surfing world. Following the surf talk and film screening, live bands will take centre stage.

The audience will also be treated to the exclusive premiere of GLOBE's new film starring Dion Agius, Craig Anderson and Chippa Wilson.

"We are excited the Lennox Head Cultural Centre has been chosen as the venue for this event. We have such a strong surf culture in the Northern Rivers, this event really celebrates that culture. It is sure to interest locals and surfers from across the region, and appeal to all ages." said Roberta O'Brien. Ballina Shire Council's Coordinator Community Facilities.
