On a quest to find waves, big, small, clean or messy, preferably just some waves that we could surf on, my brother and I, packed the 4x4 with all of our boards to suit every condition.
We started off at our home, on the North East coast of NSW Australia surfing our way north, taking a few wrong turns but managing to make the most of some small and inconsistent conditions. We eventually ended up at the Island of Stradbroke, where we were delighted to stumble across some fun little sliders, to keep our level of stoke high!
Along the way of the entire trip, we were treated with natural wonder. Sunsets which could captivate an audience, not to mention meeting some friendly marine life.

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'.
