Multi-board Surfing With Harrison Roach – South To Sian

By: The Media Garage

A Deus Ex Machina x Garage Production | South To Sian available exclusively on Garage July 15, here:

Watch Harrison showcase his diverse Rasta-esque skills on all breeds of shapes and fin combo’s in all types of waves in this exclusive edit from South To Sian the movie.

What began as a three-month trip to a collection of surf breaks off the beaten track turned into a two-year odyssey of exploration, injury, companionship and 4,000km of two-wheeled, single-finned escape from the the real-world burdens of modern life.

Harrison Roach and Zye Norris pack their bags, a diverse quiver of boards, two bikes and a 50-dollar tent into a 1970s Land Rover and embark on an epic quest from the southern reaches of Bali, through the Indonesian archipelago to Northern Sumatra’s isolated Lagundri Bay.

On boards, on bikes, by boat and four-wheel drive, the pair’s journey is to discover if, in these days of GPS and WiFi, the dream of a true pioneering surf adventure is still alive.

Lost Track – Part 1 Byron Bay.

By: surfstitch

An Australian Adventure by #polerstuff Most Australian surfers live and die by their local break. They learn how to read the take-off zones, assess the tide, swell and wind conditions, and deal with the local crowds. It’s comfortable, easy and regular. But, for those with a little more adventure in their bones, there’s still pockets of perfect uncrowded Australian waves to be found… You just have to search for them. Torren Martyn is one guy who lives to search for great waves. Growing up in the popular Northern NSW town of Byron Bay, he’s no stranger to a crowded lineup and, whilst becoming accustomed to these local points, he’s also been travelling, searching and scoring uncrowded waves in desolate locations since he was a kid. His first adventure came when he was eight years old – Torren’s parents took him on a 2-year road trip around Australia in an old Land Rover Defender that he nostalgically refers to as ‘The Red Rattler’. Torren was introduced to both surfing and drawing on the trip – the two passions that would come to define him. He explored the coastal areas of QLD, NSW, VIC, TAS, SA, WA, before heading Due East into the Red Centre, to the inland areas of the Simpson Desert, Uluru and Kakadu as they made their way home to Byron Bay. The trip sparked something inside him and, whilst he technically still “lives” in Byron Bay, he has spent most of his years since travelling, searching, surfing and drawing. About two months ago, after returning from exploring Indonesia for the last 2 years, Torren approached us with a plan to re-trace the steps of his first holiday, exploring the most desolate and untapped surfing corners of the country, documenting each leg of the trip with his best mate and filmer Ishka Folkwell. After a little planning, quiver-purchasing and map reading, Torren is off again (in another red rattler) to explore this wonderful country and share it with us in an episodic film he’s chosen to name ‘Lost Track’. Enjoy.
