Three friends (with surfing skills), a road trip in Australia to chase barrels, slabs… it’s all about having fun together.

An obsession. The dream of getting perfect barrels, far from the crowds, breaking your daily routine for few days or weeks, escape the city, the office, home. Every surfer knows the feeling. But when stars align, and the dream becomes reality, all the waiting, all the frustration releases. Oscar Langburne, Noah Beshen and Shane Borland (all surfing for RVCA) are showing you the path.
