Surf movie makes world premiere in Solana Beach

“On A Rail: Europe,” a surf movie by Solana Beach resident Tim Ryan, will premiere at Tidewater Tavern at 8 p.m. April 2.

A Tar Productions project, “On a Rail: Europe” follows three surfers, Dylan Graves, Blake Jones and Dane Ward, as they travel by train through Portugal, Spain, France and Scotland to ride powerful waves and experience different cultures.

Surfing Magazine readers might recall the 12-page feature story of their journey in the February 2009 issue. “On A Rail” is a new series from Tar Productions and Surfing Magazine.

Director and producer Tim Ryan was born, raised and still lives in Solana Beach. He will attend the screening along with Graves, one of the film’s stars.

“It will be great to show the movie to my hometown crowd,” Ryan said. “All of my friends will be there and a lot of people from the community that I grew up in will too. These are the people that have shaped me growing up, so it will be a reflection on all of them.”

The screening is free and open to all ages until 10 p.m. Tidewater Tavern is at 221 Highway 101, Solana Beach.
