In the summer of 1980, three friends from New England went on a surf trip North of America. Me, Larry Crateau, and Bruz Bowden. We had all been there many times before. In fact, our first surf trip there was in 1971...we had called this place the Last Frontier. And it was.
I shot this on my old GAF super 8mm movie camera.
It is a land of many perfect points, reefs and beach breaks. We kept it a secret for years... but like all surf destinations the word got out. It is not a secret anymore.
These waves you are about to see, were surfed for the very first time. These are virgin rides. I am riding my old BLACK VINNY board, the same one my son Max rides today. Retro swallow fish tail. 6'2"
That board is 30 years old.
The music is by my super talented nephew QWILL from his latest CD release. The title of his CD is:The Past Must Present. Ironic huh...?
Hope you dig it...
