Skier, yes skier Candide Thovex surfs the Wavegarden, and Surf Snowdonia, well not actually surfing, skiing. I don’t know why either, probably too much time on his hands, not enough attention as a child, something like that. Anyway, it’s quite amusing, hit play and put on those googles and salopettes.

Surfing’s palette of greens and blues is so ingrained it’s really odd when it doesn’t appear that way. The Bong sorts have gone with an infra red vibe for their new clip which is all kinds of otherworldly.
Being immersed in surfing can sometimes feel as if your stepping into a portal into a different planet where life becomes more colourful. The freedom, the smell, the excitement, you become one with your surroundings. A place where you can roam free, surf empty waves and strip away all the noise. This collection emerges out of a surreal jungle…one with painted palms that are untamed and wildly expressive. Bold colour collides in a vibrant palette that will linger in your dreams.

Filmmaker Jason Hearn explores the rich, diverse surfing possibilities of his home country’s “Mother City”—Cape Town. We go for a high-octane free surf with local boy Mikey February, and Jordy Smith. Then it’s over to one of the world’s best big wave breaks, Dungeons, for a rare summer session with Frank Solomon, Josh Redman, Matt Bromley, and Dale Staples. Next week, Hearn travels up to Durban for an unforgettable profile of the rough and tough crew of Cave Rock. Don’t miss it!

Jordy Smith scores a rare right-hand point in South Africa, made famous in the legendary Endless Summer surf film by Bruce Brown.
