January Storm Swell

Got some pumping swell from the North two weeks ago, this is what it looked lke at Uchiumi. 



Thomy's Duster.

 Thomy sported a beauty of duster for Movember and quite frankly just hasn't looked as good since. 




Editin' Baby! heard something about us given' up on our little project recently. The beard, kinkan seeds, stink in' bowl of Nutto, nicorette gum and coffee cup should suggest otherwise:) Hard at er' Folks! 


Bali Webisode Part 3 

Working on the re-edit of all the Bali footage we shot last May. Here's part three of a little series of webisodes we did last summer. Should be a banger seggy in the film!

 Half Priced Bento - A short film about Noa Deane's travels in Japan

Check this fine piece of work out. The surfer is Noa Deane from the Gold Coast of Australia. We were lucky to have him around Miyazaki during some good swell back in October and he'll be featuring in our Good Morning MIyazaki. The filmmaker is Noa's buddy Mikey Mallalieu. Good lads we were stoked to meet and shoot with. Enjoy Mikey's edit of their trip to JP and get ready for more Noa in Good Morning Miyazaki!

The one, the only, Abo.


  Riaru is a Gun

Riaru Ito, without a doubt one of the most gifted surfers in Miyazaki. The natural ability, wave knowledge, fearlessness and style this kid possesses at the tender age of 10 is rare. He destroys ankle high waves, but is also comfy surfing with the pros in triple over head conditions! I get so stoked when I watch this kid surf! Go Riaru!



The Boss and his ride.
