You’ve probably heard of the boards Kelly Slater is currently riding or the use of CFD on Firewire boards. But tell me, do you actually know what it stands for? What is it going to change? And most importantly, do you know the man behind this surfboard revolution?

Back to Thailand—Week Three

Back to Thailand—Week Three

Walking into my new hostel this morning, I was greeted by fellow lone wanderers and remembered for the first time in two weeks why I fell in love with travelling solo. There’s this vitality that hovers in the air, and it allows me to do things I would never do at home, like ask a stranger to join me for dinner or a coffee.

Never Leaving Bali—Week Two

This week started with a day trip to Nusa Lembongan, an Island Southeast of Bali and a fine place to relax.

Why I Shoot Female Surfing

The fog, the rain and the rich greens embrace us with a unique ambiance, one unique to most surf destinations. With a background in photography, I almost immediately felt as though I didn’t have an option: I needed to put on some fins, swim out with my friends, and bring the same exposure the male surfers were getting to the unique female surf community of Tofino.
