One day, one session !
I had just one session to make this film, it's often hard in Brittany to find the good wave, because of storm, wind, swell direction. But there is always a solution. After 3 days of bumpy waves and 2 hours of driving, Gwen Cristien find a little wave to put his famous drop knee turn. He is one of Brittany's longboard pioneer where he born and lives. Younger he tried competition, but one day Takuji Masuda told to him "You have a good style but not for competition", now he develops boards design with Brittany shaper Marc Billion from ATAO and share his knowledge by doing conferences with Patagonia or in surf exhibitions.
Celebrating art, music, shaping and of course longboarding, the Vans Duct Tape Invitational hosted by legendary surfer Joel Tudor in NYC was one of this week-end you will remember all your life. In perfect conditions, Harrison Roach and Kirra Seale won the Joel Tudor Duct Tape Invitational held in Rockaway beach, New York City.
Qui d’autre que le californien Josh Hall pour shaper ces 3 fishs ? Le légendaire shaper Skip Frye le prend sous son aile à l’âge de 18 ans pour lui transmettre ses connaissances. Josh est originaire de San Diego, ville où le design du fish a vu le jour dans des garages de la scène surf underground à la fin des 60’s, à une époque où « Style was everything in that town ».
Almost nine million years ago, the earth split open in the middle of the Atlantic and the resulting wound spouted the blood and the fire that created the Azores islands.
Far from everything, the Azores turned their back on time and witnessed how the rain and the salt colored their black lava green with vegetation and life. And it has maintained its quiet essence, adrift at sea, isolated from a loveless world, safeguarding its sublime purity from an extinct era.
Because summer means summer waves & crowds, we decided to ride up North to find a calm spot where to spend the week-end. Good friends, good waves, none else in the water, perfect weather ultimately lead to good vibes. That’s the only way to sum-up this great moment.
Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram, Twitter, Whatsapp again... More and more it is more difficult to isolate ourselves, to escape from everything, to enjoy the silence. Silence… we are stupid enough so as to invent words that describe things that do not even exist!
