This is groundbreaking stuff from Salon Alpin
I came in from a fun surf and found this amazing animation on Korduroy and it put a BIG smile on my face for the rest of the day. It touches those nerves that causes happiness.
Nice way to pull of a trailer? genius. Ridley Scott’s new film Prometheus.
We went to see the yearly Tim Bonython Surf Film Festival last night. Packed and sold out as previous years. Crazy hairy waves and sick surfers. This year was no exception. The film overall was much better this year, editing, photography. Def a step up, well done Tim and crew!
An absolut dream is to sit on a boat at Teahuppo, the Godfather of waves, and watch the waves up close….but after seeing this I´m….. nervous about that dream. yaaah.
catch it next Thursday if you can as the tour returns to Hardboard Diggers.
I would have done it in a millisecond. Love how they´re so mesmerized that they hardly flinch or wonder if it´s real. Killer Viral!
The last few weeks I have been getting involved in what is a true dream project for me.
One of my surfing heroes “Jeff Hakman” has a life story more interesting than the one of many; filled with ups, downs, sidestepping and all that jazz. With years of preparation and planning producer Pierre Weisbein has taken on the challenge of taking this true story onto the big screen. The film will be based on the book Mr Sunset (Phil Jarratt) with a treatment written by Jamie Brisick.
When the question came to me if I wanted to be the art director of the project… I said YES!
Here is where the project lives www.mrsunsetmovie.com
The political climate and the rumored brutality (cannibalism) of the tribes in Papua New Guinea has and still is keeping the general crowd away from these islands, but surfers has been visiting for the last 30 years.
A film named ‘Splinters’ by Adam Pesce takes us the village of Vanimo, where an Australian pilot left a surfboard back in 1980… and tells the story of the massive impact this have had on the villagers and life there. Seems like a very unique and interesting film.
Starting the week with yet another ‘People are Awesome’ film… but believe me, it is worth watching. The clips here are better quality, more interesting angles and the music much more in line with what I’d want for a soundtrack to these insane dare devils. Most clips seem genuine too.
As promised… here is a look at Jason Salsa Salisbury’s first surf on the finless board that Deus made.
Adidas has released this stylish skateboard film from Montreal, Canada. Nice environments, nice footage and good skaters.
A charming stop-motion animation by Sean Ohlenkamp & Lisa Ohlenkamp that reminds us of how nice it is with “real” book stores.
