After testing the Fx12m in lightwind (vimeo.com/123655299), I had few windy sessions this spring to test the FX 7m. Really a fun and easy kite with a nice and power loop. This is such a good feeling, really one of my favorite trick in kitesurfing. Something you can do endless.
Thanks to Kiteplus.fr for filming in North Brittany with empty spots and big rocks!!
Desillusion Magazine’s editor in chief Sebastien Zanella spent a few days with Dave "Rasta" Rastovich at his home in Byron bay.
Known for his flawless approach to surfing, Rasta also opened up about his outlook on professional surfing, his philosophy on life and the joys of faded flowers.

The simplest of ideas sometimes prove most difficult, as the Reef team learned firsthand. “Those guys were super lucky to get a few hours at perfect, three-to-four-foot Teahupo’o” says Ben Bourgeois, who thanks to Delta airlines got stuck for 30 hours in the Atlanta airport en route to Tahiti, thus missing the day in which these images took place. “Once I arrived the surf was huge, blown out, and junky the rest of the trip. If it weren’t for that first day, the concept would have been blown and these photos wouldn’t have happened.”
According to Reef photographer Chris Straley, “Our concept isn’t 100 percent original, as underwater photography has been seen before, but we wanted an organic, raw feeling. We didn’t want to do helicopters or any of that shit because it doesn’t fit with our brand direction. We’ve seen so many rad below-the-surface photos that guys like Brian Bielmann have shot, and that gave us the idea for an underlying theme—which is to try and portray what a reef would have seen throughout the years since the creation of surfing.”
