“Flying is my passion. It is what gets me out of bed in the morning. It is what I dream of and what my entire life revolves around. What I feel comfortable doing and what others feel comfortable doing, is very different. Don’t compare yourself to others and don’t let anyone destroy what you love.” – Graham Dickinson.
“I love shooting surfing more than anything, its not just a job, its a passion. Heres some of my favourite moments from 2016. Thanks to all the amazing surfers I was fortunate enough to work with. All images where shot using the Phantom Flex 4K camera with Arri Ultra Prime lenses and Chris Bryan Films custom underwater housing.” – Chris Bryan Films.
Pam. Creed. Love Buzz. All together, in one 5 minute video edit, creatively and visually steered by Creed McTaggart himself. He rides his signature model in FutureFlex and PE construction in his West Oz back yard and NSW’s East Coast. A stripped back, raw and fun edit. No polish required.
While Mark Gomez was still up in the Pacific North West last week after his recent competition at the 2016 Blowsion Surf Slam he had an opportunity to meet up with fellow freerider Guillermo Casas, who was in town also for the Surf Slam. Gomez has had an idea to do something with this T-Rex suit he purchased just for this purpose. Guillermo, was down to launch his drone to film a session with Gomez. This is what happened next.
Sky Brown lives in Miyazaki, Japan, but we have a feeling she’s going to become a household name worldwide soon. The 8-year-old recently made history as the youngest female ever to compete in the Vans US Open Pro Series. She and her 5-year-old brother, Ocean, have been blowing up on social media with their incredible skills posted to Youtube, Instagram, and Facebook. Check them out and show some love. It doesn’t get much radder than this.
With massive El Niño powered swells building across the Pacific, Ian, Shaun, D.K. and Luke Walsh band together in a way that only brothers can to progress surfing to unimaginable heights. Coming December 2016. Big-wave surfing’s transition from Jet Ski assists to paddling-in raises the stakes, putting Walsh’s intense physical and mental training, the latest technology, swell modeling, safety team and his brothers to the ultimate test.
“We thought there would be just as much to discover on this remote island as there is on the deserted and exotic beaches you see on postcards. We were looking for thrills and wanted to reconnect with the feelings of our beginnings, feel that pure pleasure again that only kitesurfing can bring. Travelling far to the North, getting out of our comfort zone, and exploring new lands with a truck full of equipment seemed like the perfect ingredients for an adventure. We found a very different paradise.” – @manerawatermen. Shout out to Olivier Sautet for the submission.
