The trip of a lifetime. I have been bugging Keith Teboul about going to the Marshall Islands for some windsurfing and some good times. Finally I got a message, "Marshalls are going to be good on Thursday, flight leaves tomorrow, bring your camera, your windsurfer, and plenty of sunscreen. You in?" said Keith.
Excited like a kid on Christmas, I booked my flights, bought some sunscreen and we were off. I think the images speak for themselves. The beauty of the Marshall Islands is amazing. While this video only shows hard core waves, it seems funny to say, but the thought of freeriding around this place had me pretty fired up. I would say this is the most beautiful place I have been on Earth. 4 Million frequent flyer miles, 27 countries, never have I seen a place like it.
Marcilio Browne and Bernd Roediger came along with Keith and I and the trip was a blast. Brawzinho was insane to watch as you will soon see, with some nasty wipeouts. Bernd was even more impressive as he had stayed there for 6 weeks and was really starting to let loose when he was getting barreled by the sea monster and came up with a broken back and some serious time off the water, only allowing us to get a couple clips of him ripping it up.
Keith organizes some amazing trips together with Martin Daly @ marshallwaves.com It is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The water, the beauty, just incredible. Hope you enjoy the clip.
This is not a bike film, well not as you'd expect it i guess. And even though it's narrated by Alan Watts, a philosopher, the question it brings up is rather basic.
What if you wouldn't be scared, scared to give up the job you hate, scared to leave for a better place...
What if you could dream your whole life in one night and make changes the nights following. Would you still be the same person when you wake up? Can a simple dream change your everyday life?
"I wonder, I wonder, what you would do if you had the power to dream at night any dream you wanted to dream. And you would of course be able to alter your time sense, and slip seventy-five years of subjective time into eight hours of sleep. You would I suppose start out by fulfilling all your wishes. You could design for yourself what would be the most ecstatic life. And then after a couple of months of this sort of thing at seventy-five years a night, you’d be getting a little taste for something different, and you’d move over to an adventurous dimension, where there were certain dangers involved, and the thrill of dealing with dangers. And after you had done that for awhile, you’d think up a new wrinkle, to forget that you were dreaming, and think that is was all for real." ALAN WATTS
"Free you mind and the rest will follow" is easier said than done, but it's worth thinking about it once in a while. Are you as good in postponing to the very last moment as i am? When it comes to life, your life, this moment might be too late to get epic shit done.
footage from the archives of andré paskowski, shot by basti doerr during the making of BELOW THE SURFACE on maui, mixed with some mounts i took myself. all images shot in slow motion mode. it's full 1080p HD, so might take a little load, but i think it's worth waiting. enjoy!
