Australia has some amazing scenery. Taking 5 for a coffee after the morning surf.
The Surfer’s Path is a mag I first picked up for a flight into Bali, and is now a constant feature in our lounge. Its a cross section of surfing, art, music, photography and travel with a huge dose of environmental conciousness.
“Kind of like myself” we all like to think.
Beautiful photographs of beautiful waves in beautiful locations. The stuff your (wet) dreams are made of. We can’t all be on long voyages chasing the perfect wave, but at least we can read about the seekers while sipping our caffeine.
The writing also happens to be quite good, poetic even. As only a good session in the surf or the haze could inspire. What you won’t find are loud, photoshopped ads peddling the latest in space age surf tech. Custom retros with slick paint are your new eye candy
Non surfing days now means brewing up a fresh cup of coffeee and slipping vicariouly into it’s pages.
I first came across this movie a few months after I started surfing, and its still my favourite surf film..
I must have watched it over a dozen times.. (Watched the explorers 17 times. but that was when I was a less discerning 12 yr young kid with time aplenty). Each time.. I am mesmerized by the imagery. The traveller looks for beauy in places, people, and Taylor Steele manages to evoke the sense of adventure which for most time sleeps restless in the souls of every person. The people are real, and the landscapes foreign.. Add the best surfers in the world, a killer soundtrack with great editing and you have a timeless film which can be watched over and over again, only to discover something new each time.
Watch it and you will be booking tickets to your next destination.
