Last night at the Maui Film Festival, Sanuk debuted its new film “A Different Reason to Smile” as part of an incredible benefit event celebrating Operation Smile. The evening helped raise funds for the organization’s amazing work to provide free surgeries to children born with cleft lips and cleft palates. 

The film itself follows a classic crew of Sanukers including pro surfers Matt Meola, Alek Parker and Torrey Meister as they experience a surf-trip beyond convention and immerse themselves in a volunteer mission in heart of Peru.
