Deus Slidetober Fest 2012

It’s the season of the witch, better known to us here at Deus Ex Machina as Slidetober Fest.

While the rest of the world carves pumpkins and passes out candy, we here at The Temple in the paddies throw a surf festival on the weekend of the 13-14 of October. Where we, carve waves and pass out witty banter, ocular delights and beers to all that come a knocking. On the evening of the October 13th Deus Gallery is charming our eye sockets with “Supplantabuntur” an art exhibit by Antony Doods, DHump, Monty, Satria Nugraha and Tom Hawkins. Followed by the world premier of “Temple” a Jack Coleman/Deus ex Machina united film. Along with the heat and great draw for the next mornings contest.

The morning of the 14th we slide…

The set up is simple; all boards formed by the plethora of shapers that have stopped by over the years and scratched out sleds here in Bali are the go for the day. And we supply them to you, how good is that. But if you want to bring your own Deus stick feel free (but its not guaranteed you’ll be on it). Then, out comes the wheel of fortune, you spin it; you stop it, and slide the stick of your destiny. There will be singles, twins, two plus ones, bonzers, maybe even a quad, but you wont find any conventional craft in the quiver of stix, not that we don’t like them, its just not on the cards for this day in the sun. But wait there’s more (as if you thought we’d stop when the stars come out, hell no) as the night falls upon us we then high tail it up to The Temple were we pass out the awards, prizes from the days raffle, more beers and then fill your ear bags with a special guest performance by Empire of the Sun guitarist Surahn Sidhu. We then keep on keeping on with live Rock-n-Roll music by Australian indie band “Last Dinosaurs”. So like we said its Slidetober Fest, for all you ghouls and groovy ghoulies, it’s the season of the witch, which board you’ll be on…. Sign up at Deus Ex Machina Canggu and we’ll see you in the line up…
