Salts and Suits is the amazing true story of how a group of young beach bums turned their passion for riding waves into the world’s fastest growing leisure industry, surviving wipe-outs, drug busts, rip-offs, recessions and the constant pressure to act and dress like grown-ups. Despite recent downturns, surfing’s biggest brands have crossed the billion-dollar threshold by thinking big and staying cool… or have they?

Phil Jarratt penned Salts and Suits in 2010 when the global surfing industry was still riding that endless summer of success, but the cracks were already beginning to show. Fast forward to 2013 and plunging share prices and takeover bids make it timely to ask: where is that billion-dollar surfing industry at now? Never shy of controversy, Jarratt will lead an entertaining panel and the audience on a colourful, controversial and passionate discussion on the fate of the modern surf industry.
