VANLIFE

I recently bought a 1984 Volkswagen T3 Caravelle. This is it. It leaks oil and only gets about 250 kms per tank of fuel but what it lacks for in safety, reliability and practicality it makes up for in personality. Dad and I stripped the inside and built a bed/board storage and floor for the van, Dad had a T2 Kombi when he was my age whilst traveling solo around Germany and Europe and even though this isn’t nearly as cool, traveling down the surf coast in this thing is hard to beat.

I also bought a log. What’s happening to me?

GONE SURFING

Hope everyone had a great xmas/new year break and did plenty of whatever it is they enjoy doing at that time of year wether it be eating lots of food, getting stupidly drunk and inappropriate with your extended family, getting away from people camping and chilling or eating your face off surrounded by people at a festival… we hope you indulged to the fullest.

Now I’m going surfing. I wont be near a computer for a while so I suggest instead of contacting us about work you should do the same… Go surfing.

NEW ZEALAND RAMBLINGS

New Zealand is known around the world for having a shit load of sheep, but after spending nearly 3 weeks cruising around the coast of the North island I have to say that it kinda just seems like a similar ratio to here in Vic – What we did find however was an abundance of world class waves and a whole lot of camo print.. It was everywhere! It was unusual to drive down a strip and not see a local in camo, they had shorts, tee’s, jackets, boots, hats, we saw a whole van painted in it and someones front fence of their house painted. Saw it in menswear shops next to the suits. It was fucked! If someone wants to make some serious $$ they should make camo print wellingtons and distribute them through Pak-n-Save, you would never have to work another day in your life! Anyway, here are some photographs from the road on the North island of New Zealand as seen through my Olympus Trip 35mm. Enjoy.

NEW ZEALAND & SOME SHITTY FILTERS

Last month we spent a few weeks driving around New Zealand’s beautiful North Island. Lots of Tui’s and Lion Reds were drunk, lots of waves ridden and too much coffee and lollies consumed… I documented the trip on my Olympus Trip 35mm and that’s where the gold will lie but until the rolls are developed here is New Zealand through the lens of my Iphone 4, put through a social network with some shitty filter and blur effects added for likes.

SUMATRA, INDONESIA


A few days ago I returned from a surf trip in Southern Sumatra, Indonesia. The place is amazing, a real surfers paradise. Was by far the best trip I have done surfing or otherwise, the area, the people and the surf were beyond amazing. I took along a 1970′s Olympus Trip 35mm film camera to capture some of the sights and memories. Here is a selection of my favourite pics from the rolls. Hope you enjoy this small look into my time there…

JULY UPDATE


July has been a pretty slow month over here, although we have completed a few really cool projects, unfortunately I can’t post them yet until the client unveils them first. So in the meantime here is a pic of the waves I got this morning, one of the benefits of a quiet week! Cracking winters day on the Victorian coast.

Hopefully we should be posting some cool work in the next few weeks, stay tuned!

GETTING MORE WAVES

Berry's Beach Phillip IslandCape Patterson
A slow work week coupled with a fairly consistant swell and favourable winds made the decision pretty easy for a busy week surf wise for us! Managed to score waves on the Great Ocean Road, Phillip Island and further down too. Snapped these few pics from the beach before each session.

GETTING WAVES

The waves were on the last few days down the surf coast. Was lucky enough to get a few great early morning waves on Monday and snapped this picture of the early morning crew at Winki-pop on my way down the coast to surf a right hand reef further down the Great Ocean Road.

RAKE SURFBOARDS – I WANT ONE OF THESE SO BAD

I want one of these shapes from http://rakefoamshapes.com/ so bad! They look like ridiculous fun, twin or quad set ups on a board that looks like a mal cut in half. Have heard nothing but good things and just want to try one out asap. Might have to wait for the summer slop to roll around again though.

Oh, and also custom pigments and prints.
