A Sense of Space

‘A Sense of Space’ gives a small insight into the world of Byron Bay native Torren Martyn and the diversity of wave-rich Australia. Riding for Morning of the Earth Surfboards, Torren and shaper Simon Jones have developed a highly productive and symbiotic relationship. Simon’s boards represent the best of both worlds: beautiful, functional surfboards that are a dream to ride. With the drawn out lines and stylish approach of Torren's wave-riding and Simon's knowledge, the pair have worked together on the creation of finely tuned performance twin fins that you’ll see Torren riding in the mesmerising ‘A Sense of Space’.

Alternativa

“To any of the young girls out there or even to women getting into surfing at a later time in their life, surfing is such an empowering tool,” says Kassia Meador. “It’s something that’s so beautiful to gain your own personal energy and strength, to push yourself and own every aspect of yourself, and surfing helps give you the tools to navigate that and navigate life in different ways.”

Alternativa, starring Kassia Meador, Leah Dawson and Lola Mignot, documents three outstanding women on a trip to El Salvador, who are leading women’s surfing into the future through their own approach to surfing and life.

New Age Let Down

New York filmmaker Tin Ojeda’s latest release ‘New Age Let Down’ is nothing short of exceptional. Created in conjunction with Daata Editions, a platform for new generation artists, the film is an upbeat montage of images in both colour and monochrome, displayed against an eclectic soundtrack of improvisational jazz, rock and dissonant noise. 

Daata Editions commissions artist video, sound, poetry and web. This new and innovative way to collect art is designed specifically to be a native platform to a new generation of artists who work with moving image and sound. Limited edition artworks of Tin Ojeda’s ‘New Age Let Down’ can acquired on the Daata Editions website.

Lunar

Remember the second edition of I AM SURF where Matteo Ferrari of Onde Nostre personally presented us the premiere of Peninsula? Onde Nostre just released their latest film ‘Lunar’ and we’re keen to share it with you as a warm up to the next edition of I Am Surf. Lunar features Hawaiian wahine Leah Dawson in Fuerteventura. With the strange and beautiful treeless landscape of Fuerteventura as a backdrop, Leah creates music, handshapes a board and dances on water with power and grace. Enjoy the glide!
