Alaia Surfing with Remi Petersen

Alaia Surfing – The art a surfing a handcrafted piece of tree with no finns, channels or rocker

1 year ago we met this crazy kid in J-Bay, running up and down the beach with a piece of wood under his arm, and blonde hair blowing in the wind. We filmed a quick session of Remi Petersen shredding his Alaia board. You people loved it, so Bianca Asher headed back to Jbay to get some more action with Remi. Not only does he kill on this finless board but he is one of the best backhand surfers at Supertubes. It is almost impossible to comprehend the difficulty of this type of surfing. most of you would spend a month on this board and still not even manage a bottom turn. Keep it up Rem Dog. Big things to come.

Tell us what you think of this surfing. Is it just for hippie kids… or is this the ultimate expression of freedom on a wave?

Llandudno

Local Grom Tristan Lev is making his comeback to surfing after a 4 month injury time-out. Together with his side kick Jarrod David, they hit up Llandudno for a fun little session. With everyone at work, the line up was empty with some unfazed onlookers missing out on the show.

Cape summer sessions

Jarrod David, the owner a Liquid Force Wakeboard & Kite shop in Blouberg got more than he wished for, for his birthday present when he headed to the Cape for a quick surf session yesterday.

With only a few locals out, and Bianca Asher behind the lens.. he really couldn’t have asked for a better day. Oh and a sunset kite session to finish the day off.

Wakeboarding with Smoke Flares and Flashes

Flares and Flashes.

After seeing Bruce Irons in a glowing barrel with flares strapped to his board, we’ve been dying to strap some onto a wakeboard. The only problem is at R250 a flare (that last 30 seconds) and a photographer sitting on a boat in pitch darkness, 200m away; the logistics become a night mare.

We headed to Blue Rock Cable Park with one of Cape Towns best Photographers, Bianca Asher and a Nice Budget from Liquid Force Cape Town and ofcourse some of the best cable riders in CT. Bianca Managed to get these amazing images in a very limited 1 hour window. We are all stoked with the outcome and the surreal experience.

Cape Town Cable wakeboarders: Craig Eygenberger, Gregor Reichmuth, Sky Keller, Graham Howes, Candice Bacon, Sean Bacon, Craig Howes, Hjalmar Larsen, Nick Cattelan,

After all it was a proper shot in the dark… literally
