Wavescape Surf Festival 2013, presented by Pick ‘n Pay prepares to inspire audiences at the 10th edition of the festival b>

The Great White Shark is more endangered than the rhino, and ocean acidification could mean the end of fish in the next 20 years.

Dramatic warnings by scientists, which underline the importance of ocean conservation, will be covered by films and speakers at the 10th edition of the Wavescape Surf Festival, presented by Pick n Pay, this December.

The festival which runs from 27 November to the 16 December includes a screening of Revolution, a hard hitting documentary about the future of the ocean, and a talk by a shark scientist that brings home the state of the ocean.

Films will be shown outdoors and indoors at four venues, including a "night under the stars" on Clifton 4th Beach on 7 December. The popular Wavescape Surfboard Art Exhibition and Auction takes place between 27 November and 4 December. Last year, almost a quarter of a million rand was raised, and beneficiaries were the NSRI, Shark Spotters and the Isiqalo Foundation.

This year sees the second time that Wavescape, supported by the Save Our Seas Foundation and Jack Black Beer, includes Slide Night, a unique evening where 10 scientists and ocean thought leaders speak for 10 minutes each.

An addition to the beach lifestyle and cultural festival activity is the Wavescape Fish Fry, a surfboard market and community get together at the historical heart of surfing in South Africa, Muizenberg.
