Last minute change of plans made me postpone my Hawaiian trip and chase this swell all the way to Ireland. The swell window was small, it was 0ºC degrees, the ski was covered in ice, but the one day session made the trip worth it.
A big thank you to Joel Grey, Al Mackinnon, Barry Mottershead, Allan Mulrooney and my filmer Jose Pedro Gomes for making this trip happen.

Sincerely Suburbia is the final salute to a film and a moment we're rather fond of. Shot around the globe in 2012, this film was pulled off the cutting room floor for Dear Suburbia, Kai Neville's award winning surf film. Sincerely Suburbia stars Dane Reynolds, Kolohe Andino, Conner Coffin, Jay Davies and Mitch Coleborn with cameos by Kelly Slater, Taj Burrow and Cory Lopez.
Aside from putting an end dot on our last project, the release of Sincerely Suburbia marks the beginning of the most exciting part of what we do: hitting the road and starting all over again. Which we're doing immediately, already filling hard drives with visions of late nights and long flight and tons of surfing. Don't forget to come along every day at WhatYouth.com
