Tom Butler’s Surf Therapy

Tom Butler’s Surf Therapy

Surf therapy works, for children, for you and I. At the start of this episode I’m getting my fix of surf therapy surfing my favourite wave, Mullaghmore, Ireland. Fast forward to the middle of the episode and the children at the Wave Project can be seen tackling their own monster waves. No matter how big or how small that wave may be it’s still a challenge, rise to the challenge and embrace it. The kids on my first six-week course did exactly this.

A huge shout out to my team of surf mentors who are to blame for the success of the Mid-Cornwall project so far. Thank you all so much 🙂

Joan Duru & Maud Le Car Hit The WaveGarden Cove

Joan Duru & Maud Le Car Hit The WaveGarden Cove

.
French pro surfers Joan Duru and Maud Le Car recently found a gap in their busy competition schedules to sneak in a session at the new Wavegarden Cove. Duru, who in his maiden year on the world tour has proven his ability as a powerhouse surfer in Fiji and South Africa, jumped at the chance to rip into the Cove’s wide variety of waves. Le Car was equally impressive with her fluid rail-to-rail style, and as the two of them exchanged waves, onlookers might easily have mistaken the session for a competitive man-on-woman heat.

“It was really nice to have different waves,” said Le Car. “In the ocean sometimes you don’t have the opportunity to have those types of waves to try different things because you don’t want to fall”.

Duru quickly set about putting the new technology through its paces, testing out his repertoire on waves both small and large. He definitely took a liking to the bigger waves on offer, which enabled him to practice his vertical backhand snaps and powerful carves. “We surfed a turn wave [which was] more hollow and that was good to hit the lip, a little bit like Snapper [Rocks],” beamed the Frenchman.

Jordy Smith at Jeffreys Bay is one of surfing’s greatest sights. The long, roping walls of Africa’s most famous right hander allow the big natural footer to generate fearsome speed, which he then harnesses and turns in to the biggest carves in the game. Spray flies to the stratosphere, raining back down at the same time as his next vicious assault on the lip. It’s brutal and beautiful, beastly and balletic. Big, bold and brash, there’s nothing else quite like it.

Jonathan Gubbins has been traveling the world sampling barrels like an American in Costco but has found two that suit his charging style – Skeleton Bay and Kandui. Big, fast lefts that look like a goofy’s paradise. Take three minutes and get yourself a taste.

Water Over Sand

Water Over Sand


.
Water Over Sand. The most simplistic description of a surfers playing field. True to simplicity, this motion piece focuses on Asher Pacey and his affinity for a pure and uncomplicated journey amongst Australia’s coastline. It depicts an adventure we all pine for…escaping the rat race, bee-lining for a remote stretch of coast off the well-worn path, equipped with little more than a swag, surfboard, fishing rod, beers, fun waves, no phone reception and a couple of good buddies to share it all with.

True to his style, this piece was captured, directed and edited beautifully by the talented Matt Kleiner.
