Surfing world is full of passionate men and women. We see some of them fighting for the world title. But there are much more of them out there, in big surfing cities and small coastal towns doing different things than taking part in WSL tour. I’ve learned that their stories can be very interesting and inspiring. I would like to bring those stories to light. I’ll start with Andy, founder of the Oceano Surf School in Conil.
As someone who needs to travel to surf I have developed 5 rules of packing. Thanks to them I always take exactly what I need.
Surfing and New York City. Two main inspirations that gave birth to one of my favorite clothing brands – Saturdays NYC.
Based on my recent experience I’ve prepared a five steps guide of how to successfully buy a dream surfboard.
7 A.M. just after sunrise. We’re on one of the Jersey shore beaches. Poor surf, but amazing light. Cold. Perfect conditions for this photo shoot. Starring: beanie, sweatshirt and boat shoes – my favourite classics for autumn.
First time ever surfing on the East Coast. First all alone session. First time completely cold feet. Rockaway beach – still stoked when I think about that day.
When there’s no ocean around a local lake will do. This sunset paddling session was awesome!
No problem with gaining speed and catching a wave but poor balance while paddling and not getting what sea is saying to me – these are the most important conclusions from my Hel peninsula surf trip.
All you need is an idea and a photographer who feels it.
No gym, no heavy weights. Just 15-30 minutes and a space where you can easily lay down. That’s my surfing power routine.
