This song reminds me of short surfers that try hard.
Vaughn Blakey is the Editor n Chief of Surfing World Mag, he asked me for an interview and some pictures for this months issue that featured Indonesia throughout. As well as an interview on my process of filmmaking. There is also a sweet writeup about HAPPY BEACH in there that was quite flattering mentioning Acadamy Awards. I was described in featured interview as a “Spiritual Soul & an Eccentric Mess”. Stoked to get my films and views going over there in Auz, phyched!
Bob McTavish is a living legend. Surfing World Magazine is an Australian based surf mag and they did an article on the awesomeness of his being. It features photos by Tom Hawkins of Knosty and Ellis Ericson on trips I was on, as well as the meet and greet sit down interview group discussion on board design with McTavish and Rich Pavel that i was also fortunate enough to be at a few months back. Here is the spread.

Fun trip with the crew in some fun little warm water waves. We BBQ’d the night away with alotta coldies and fireworks, played some music and explored the coastline at night examining odd japanese sea bering creatures.
This week we are premiering a film entitled “TEMPLE” here in Changgu, Bali. It is all about the moto surf lifestyle that has been embodied by the brand Deus Ex Machina here in Bali where it has its roots. Its a motorcycle/surf/longboard/shaper film that takes a look at all aspects related with the brand. Here is a few pics i took while on a trip during the project!
