Tim Reyes is on the bus!

Tim Reyes is on the bus!

This is an interview I shot with Californian pro surfer Timmy Reyes, sitting with his girlfriend Megan in the Red Bull tour truck during the 2010 O’Neill Cold Water Classic in Thurso. Tim’s a super-chilled guy, pretty laid back and cruising up and down the Californian coast in his Toyota truck, sometimes venturing into remote spots in Mexico, such as Puerto Escondido and suchlike.  During 2010 he wants taking the Tour pretty easy, after 10 straight years of travelling.  Despite [...]

Brad Ettinger – A long way from home

Brad Ettinger – A long way from home

 Loose Films caught up with Huntingdon Beach pro surfer Brad Ettinger a while back, whilst Brad was competing in the O’Neill Cold Water Classic in Thurso, Scotland.   Brad talks about a typical day when he’s back home, surfing with Brett Simpson and other local surfers, as well as the areas of his surfing he’s focussing on right now. Brad is actually quite an inspiration and he probably doesn’t fit the archetypal model of what surfer looks like.   As well as [...]

Surfing Sumbawa with Jean da Silva

Surfing Sumbawa with Jean da Silva

Jean da Silva took a trip to Bali and Sumbawa earlier this year.  As well as being one of Brazil’s top surfers, he also has a great eye behind the lens and he’s produced numerous films of his own.   This film was shot on the first day of the trip, where he flew from Bali and he surfs Lakey Peak.   Loose Films will certainly continue to show Jean’s work.  I first met Jean on the beach at Carcavelos, Portugal, during [...]

Big waves in Portugal

Big waves in Portugal

With the recent North Atlantic swell hitting Portugal at 4 metres with 16 second intervals, New Zealand pro surfer Rowan Aish heads up the coast from Lisbon to score the first decent winter swell of the season. Having fought his way back from injury over the past few years, Rowan Aish is training hard and working to get his surfing and fitness back on track, ready for Tour events in 2012.   Paddling into waves like these in his video, we [...]

Rowan Aish and Luis Eyre

Rowan Aish and Luis Eyre

Here’s a great new movie, shot, edited and starring Rowan Aish and Luis Eyre, surfing an early morning session in Ericeira, Portugal. Whilst Rowan is from New Zealand and Luis’s family are British, both surfers have really found their rhythm in the Portuguese surf and, as you’ll see from the film, plenty of training has certainly paid off!  Rowan’s finding his way back onto the ASP Tour after breaking the same leg twice – but you can’t keep a good [...]

Don’t drink and skimboard!

Perhaps we should all take the moral highground here, and choose not to laugh at drunks.  However, this is mildly amusing, so I hope we can all make an exception!

    Daniel Ross – Exclusive Movie!

    I shot this interview of Dan Ross really early one morning, during a lay-day at the WCT Portugal event in October 2010. I was stood next to Matt Wilkinson and Steph Gilmore, and Dan was doing a 20 minute yoga set before he paddled out… Busting out positions you don’t really want to see a grown man performing at 6am in a wetsuit! We chatted after his freesurf and he’s one of those annoyingly nice guys who’s just got everything [...]

    Patrick Gudauskas Movie!

    One of the first things I noticed when I met Patrick Gudauskas was his positivity and confidence. In fact, let’s scrub all that and just call him very friendly. A likeable guy. Very Californian. Most of us could keep only up that facade for maybe five minutes. Pat’s seemingly kept it up all his life. His enthusiasm is contagious, especially when you’re in the company of all three brothers – Dane, Tanner and Pat. Pat surfed well in this contest [...]

    Abdel el Harim – Morocco’s top surfer!

    Abdel el Harim is Morocco’s most famous and successful surfer. Everytime I have hung out with him, Abdel is so upbeat and positive, with seemingly more energy than the rest of the World Surfing Tour put together! This is quite an introspective and personal interview where Abdel talks about his dedication to his Muslim faith. Most of the movie was shot during a trip to Lanzarote, where we shared a house with Omer Bar and Nic von Rupp. When Abdel’s [...]

    Aussies Surf Trip Part 2

    If you missed Part One: Click Here Having spent the whole day in a car with four Australian pro surfers, mostly drinking coffee and eating doughnuts, I finally got a chance to film them at the local break – Carcavelos, Lisbon, Portugal. Very friendly to each other during their freesurf, each of them gave the camera a few, more private, thoughts on what they really felt about the others! It was tough going, trying to film four pro surfers, stretching [...]

    Gabe Kling Portugal Film

    This is a video profile on Gabe Kling, from Florida, on his way to a second place finish during a WQS contest in Portugal. Gabe was born and raised in the United States’ oldest city of St. Augustine, Florida. This was filmed just as he was getting back onto the WCT Top 44, alongside fellow elite East Coasters including Slater and the Hobgoods. The powerful natural-footer’s rookie year on the ASP World Tour came in 2007, but he was unable [...]
