La Danse Macabre – Craig Anderson

By: Desillusion Magazine

Australian surfer and South African native Craig Anderson is possibly one of the best things to happen to surfing in recent years, bringing an incomparable style and aesthetic everytime he sets foot in the ocean. Desillusion Magazine editor in chief, Sebastien Zanella, spent a night following Craig, insomnia setting in, wandering on the east coast of New South Wales, Australia.
“La Danse Macabre” is a short experimental film between nightmares and reality, fiction and dreams.

Ride It All Out

By: Deus ex Machina

When Lewie Dunn mentioned that he wanted to head to Indonesia and spend the dry season chasing surf, Temple shaper Jye Byrnes flooded him with questions… “What kind of waves will you be surfing? What style of boards do you want to be riding? Have you told your girlfriend yet?”

Lewie had a whole list written before he’d even registered the girlfriend question.

In the mix of boards that came as a result of their rendezvous were – a 5’0 split-keel fish – a 5’7 diamond tail quad – a 6’1, 5-fin bonzer – a 6’3 channel bottom single fin – and a 9’3 single fin log. He must have a large board bag.

Anyway, Lewie had been surfing all over the archipelago selecting the right boards for the right conditions, when he thought, why don’t I try ride them all in one day? And so he did! This fun little clip details his day spent paddling out and surfing in. His day spent changing boards and screwing and unscrewing fins.

Lewie’s surf turned into a kind of marathon (it being much harder physically than he had expected) but damn, doesn’t it look like fun?
