Locals can expect a month of ocean events and film screenings when the Wavescape Surf and Ocean Festival kicks off this weekend.

The annual Wavescape Surf and Ocean Festival is back in the Mother City this month.

The month-long initiative is in its 16th year and is focused on conservation awareness and ocean activism.

The festival runs from Saturday 9 November until Sunday 8 December.

It includes a host of activities such as discussions, film screenings, beach cleanups, book launches, and charity events.

Steven Pike, a surfing writer and director of Wavescape Media, says the event aims to bring urgent attention to ocean conservation while also celebrating surf culture.

It started out as a celebration of surfing, beach culture and surf movies.

As this whole thing around the ocean started to become more urgent, that's when we segued into more ocean conservation issues.
