REDirect® has returned for its second year to highlight surfing's filmmaking community. Partnering for this year’s competition and short film festival with Surfer Magazine—REDirect has selected 11 individuals from across the globe to participate in not only a competition, but a celebration of the passion that goes in to both filmmaking and the sport of surfing.
Check back throughout the competition to view all of the submissions and updates—contestant videos and stills will post weekly through July 21, 2015 as well as winner announcements publishing the first week of August.

Responsible for the entire process of making their vision come to life, each contestant shot their film using EPIC DRAGON camera kits as well as REDCINE-X PRO®’s post-production workflow to edit their film. Each camera kit consisted of an EPIC-M RED DRAGON with REDMAG 1.8” Side SSD, three 240 GB REDMAGs, DSMC Side Handle, DSMC Ti Canon Mount, and RED Touch 5.0” LCD—all packaged in Lowepro’s innovative DryZone 200 backpack to protect against the elements. G-Technology® made sure that the post-production process was covered with both G-DOCK ev® storage options for the footage.
REDirect's Grand Prize winner will take home the kit they used to shoot during the competition, earning over $50,000 worth of gear to continue shooting their passion.
