CONSURFVATION
Thanks to Goldfish Kiss, I recently received some Consurfvation swag. I was totally oblivious to the label before but have completely fallen in love with it now. Created by a graphic designer, who’s a lover of the sea and produces the softest beach T’s around… whats not to love?! Not to mention it’s a socially responsible company that gives back. Since the Ocean is my biggest obsession in life I find it very fitting to ‘wear the cause.’ Pick up a shirt! You seriously will end up living in it! www.consurfvation.com

COME HELL OR HIGH WATER

"Keith Malloy’s debut film, Come Hell or High Water, shot primarily on 16mm focuses on the simplicity and beauty of bodysurfing. Keith explores the history and progression of the sport through its many unique characters. It’s about taking a breath, and kicking your feet, in the big blue sea."

"I’ve been here so long
Think that it’s time to move
The winter’s so cold
Summer’s over too soon
Let’s pack our bags and
Settle down where palm trees grow

I’ve got some friends
Some that I hardly know
We’ve had some times
I wouldn’t trade for the world
We chase these days down with talks
Of the places that we will go”

DARK SIDE OF THE LENS // ASTRAY FILMS

This is probably one of the most inspiring short films ever. Whether your a surfer, photographer, lover of the sea or just a creative you’ve gotta watch this! The commentary is amazing and the shots speak for themselves. I always take a few minutes to watch this when I feel like I need some inspiration but don’t have the time to go on vacation. Enjoy and remember to follow your passion! #passionoverprofit

Filmmaker Chris McClean has just released this short surf film, Snoozer. It features Gabe Davis and is an ode to the fickle and frigid breaks of the North Sea. 

It has been entered into  London Surf Film Festival's The Shorties film contest, so keep an eye out for it. The London Surf Film Festival will be hosting screenings, talks and workshops to the Riverside Studios in Hammersmith, London from October 11-14, 2012.
