In 1988, Billabong released Filthy Habits, a film that in many ways revolutionized the concept of surf cinema. Twenty-one years later, they’ve set out to do it again with Still Filthy.
Featuring Andy Irons, Taj Burrow, Joel Parkinson, Dave Rastovich and the rest of the Billabong surf team, Still Filthy spans the globe and distills those expeditions into a no-filler surf flick with a soundtrack to match.
“Just like Filthy Habits gave us an early glimpse of several surfing icons—Occy and Sunny, to name a few—Still Filthy is going to open some eyes to a heap of new crew,” says Director Jarrod Tallman. “The raddest thing for me though is how Occy was absolutely ripping in the original film 21 years ago and now he is going to be killing it in this film.”
So don’t miss the world premiere Thursday, September 10, 2009 at The Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego at 9 PM. The show is free and open to the public, so be there.
