RADICAL TIMES // SOUTH AFRICA
"A land of diversity. Mountainous coastlines vs drought ridden desert. The lavishly rich vs the street begging poor. The wildlife of the savannah vs the wildlife of the city. No other country in the world boasts such dramatic contrast. We piled in the rental vans and road tripped from the bottom to the top. Surfing perfect point breaks, bombing hills, eating biltong and living in the now now."
L'Afrique comme vous ne l'avez jamais vu ! Terre de contrastes mais également de surf, l'Afrique du Sud a reçu la visite de la team Quiksilver avec le snowboarder Bryan Fox, les surfeurs Mikey February, Matt Banting et Lee-Ann Curren ainsi que les skaters Zach Miller et Javier Mendizabal. Une aventure authentique à la découverte des richesses de ce pays.

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!
In January 2019, snowboarder Mathieu Crepel and surfer Damien Castera, joined by photographer Greg Rabejac and lmmaker Pierre Frechou, traveled to the very northern tip of Norway for a boardriding expedition in the heart of the Arctic winter. In between snowy peaks and icy waves, they went deep into the polar night where solar winds meet Earth’s magnetic eld to create the fairy dance of the Aurora Borealis.
'Thank You Mother' is a cinematic journey of surfing, simplicity and appreciation. It is a film that isn't afraid to be beautiful, stylish and sincere. Produced by Torren Martyn and Ishka Folkwell with an original soundtrack by Nick Bampton. 'Thank You Mother' is narrated by award winning Australian film maker and life long simplist Albert Falzon, who made the seminal 1970 surf film 'Morning of the Earth'.
