Surfing big waves is always a challenging experience, especially if you’ve only taken up surfing later in life. As always, spending as much time as possible in the ocean during bigger swells is the surest way to feeling more confident, however these practical tips will also help.
With a recent run of big waves here on the East Coast of Australia, I found myself a little unprepared for many of the waves on offer for the apex of the swell.
I ended up surfing some great waves, solid, but definitely not huge. I saw many intermediate level surfers who also paddled out but struggled with the conditions. This tutorial is for them. – Kales Broccoli
Watch how Mountain Biker Matt Jones manually imported and moved 100 tonnes of dirt and moulded it into an insane backyard racing track.
With limited access to bike parks, tracks, playgrounds and travel around the world, Matt was looking for new ways to keep up his agility and fitness on the bike at home in the UK, during the Covid-19 lockdown period. Matt decided there was no better way than to take on the challenge of building his very own racing track, with all the routes and jumps he needed, in his very own backyard.
“Assorted Rides” is comprised of a few sessions in California where I met up with a surfer I’ve really enjoyed watching over the years. Devon Howard’s approach to surfing inspired the feel of this short—a modern classic. In preparation for this project, I pored over old surf photograpahy books with works by guys like LeRoy Grannis and Ron Stoner. They are photographers that captured moments and told stories through the use of dramatic backlighting and color accents compressed through a manual focus telephoto lens that—when complimented by the grain of film—produced a timeless image. My hope is the short film does two things: 1.) Makes you want to go surfing right now! 2.) To record a moment in time which represents what I think is Devon’s best surfing to date, at age 46 no less.
