After the Duct Tape in Portugal, Vans riders Adrien Toyon and Ainara Aymat continued their journey to Cornish, heading to Sir Seb Smart’s kingdom.
Far from the surf trip cliché, Cornish is full of surprises: Celts myths, fish & chips, culture, language… and sometimes even good waves for surfing. With their local guide Seb, Ainara and Adrien discovered all these richnesses.
“My favourite thing about the trip was the response by the locals. They often suggested that they hadn’t seen many new faces in the area before. Previously, I remember being a grom and getting so stoked every time I saw a pro surfer out in the sea. It was always inspirational. So now, seeing those same looks from the locals made me feel proud. It’s those moments that remind me of my roots and how special these sorts of things are. I’m proud of where I’m from and love showing people around. It’s memories created that’ll stay forever,” asserts Seb Smart, Vans Surf Team.
Because summer means summer waves & crowds, we decided to ride up North to find a calm spot where to spend the week-end. Good friends, good waves, none else in the water, perfect weather ultimately lead to good vibes. That’s the only way to sum-up this great moment.
My vacation coincided with the first swell of the season, which was about to reach the coast of Indonesia. The Swell was smaller than forecasted but the waves were fun and the water was warm ... what more could you ask for ?
Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram, Twitter, Whatsapp again... More and more it is more difficult to isolate ourselves, to escape from everything, to enjoy the silence. Silence… we are stupid enough so as to invent words that describe things that do not even exist!

I glance down at my watch, it reads just after 9am. Over the top of my coffee, I scour the ocean, It’s a wild and bumpy canvas layered with mood. There’s only going to be one decent spot on a day like today I think aloud.
