We’re confident our curators will offer us a well rounded program that will give the film selection legitimacy and credibility. The films that will be selected will truly be the cream of the crop,” said Tyler Breuer, SMASH Founder and Director.

The following curators were chosen in order to create a well rounded film program that will appeal to both a core surf audience as well as the general public. All curators are reputable experts in their fields and are tasked with watching every film submitted with a careful eye. We are proud to present the official SMASH FEST 1

DeTemple has been an integral part to the East Coast’s surf scene since the age of 16 when he won his first pro contest and became a staple in the world of pro surfing. He has graced the covers of numerous worldwide surf publications and produced two of the best-selling surf films of the past several years.
