TONIGHT: Ocean Night! Birth of an Ocean, Surfing for Life

TONIGHTOcean ConservancyHumboldt Surfrider and Humboldt Baykeeper present “Birth of an Ocean” and “Surfing for Life” as part of our ongoing Ocean Night series at the Arcata Theatre Lounge.

Birth of an Ocean 
More than four billion years ago, the most important event in Earth’s history took place – the ocean was born. It completely transformed the planet, creating a watery oasis that gave rise to the air we breathe, our climate, and a stunning array of life, including the critical species that first crawled out of the sea to inhabit land. The ocean is what transformed Earth into the livable, blue planet it is today. Learn how we are just beginning to understand the complexity of the ocean and the immense influence it has on the planet and our own survival.

Surfing for Life
A vibrant and award-winning one-hour documentary about inspiring well-spent lives, offers a totally fresh look at successful aging. Narrated by Beau Bridges, it profiles ten legendary surfers who model healthy aging by staying active and engaged into their 7th, 8th and 9th decades. Through interviews, contemporary day-in-the-life footage, and a wealth of rare archival material, the film provides an eloquent and powerful antidote to the negative images of aging presented in America’s youth-obsessed culture.
