Devon Howard and the crew at Patagonia Cardiff have another great evening planned for the shop. Here's Devon with the scoop:

Hey everyone,

We are super stoked that Rob Machado will be here at the shop this Friday to hang out, play a few tunes with his friend Jon Swift, then show his new film, directed by Taylor Steele, called The Drifter. Hope to see you there. If you can't make it please forward this to your tweets, peeps and Facebook homies.

The Drifter
An evening and surf film screening with Rob Machado

Friday, November 20
7 pm
Patagonia Cardiff

Join Cardiff's own Rob Machado for the final screening of Hurley and Warner Brothers' U.S. film tour for The Drifter, directed by Poor Specimen's Taylor Steele. Machado’s much-anticipated autobiographical surf movie is a personal journey as much as it is a showcase of some of the world’s most flawless waves.

Machado will play a few songs with special guest Jon Swift starting at 7 pm, followed immediately by a screening of The Drifter.

Be sure to meet Rob for a signed poster or DVD copy of The Drifter between 6 and 7 pm, as well as following the film screening. A Wegener Alaia and some Nixon watches will also be given away.

This outdoor event is free, but donations for the Rob Machado Foundation will be gladly accepted at the door. Seating is based on a first come first serve basis — and please dress appropriately for the weather. In case of bad weather, the event will be moved indoors. Be sure to follow Patagonia Cardiff for updates on Twitter and Facebook.

Patagonia Cardiff thanks Hurley and Warner Brothers for helping to provide Rob's hometown with this special engagement screening.
