THIS Africa Project video from Jason Hearn is mind-blowing. A filmmaker on a mission.
Africa is a mystical continent, familiar to surfers through the dusty images from the classic hippy trail to Morocco, those pier side barrels of the Durban beaches, or a once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage to the hallowed waters of J-Bay. But what of Namibia, Senegal and beyond?
“It’s a three year film project on surfing in Africa through the eyes of a surfer.” Said Jason. “Filmed, directed and edited by myself. Featuring the best surfers in Africa, the landscapes, cultures, people and some of the most incredible waves that can be found anywhere.”
It may be too late for the ASP Big Wave World Tour, but Dungeons lit up.
Conor Maguire harks towards a time when the cold and dark wraps back in and the lows deepen, spinning thick ropes of swell towards Ireland.
Italy has waves and Sardinia has some of the best spots, places you would not believe. Leonardo Fioravanti knows that better than most...
From the Caribbean to Nova Scotia (and maybe even Europe) the forecast is for a medium sized swell to grace your local beach.
Like a lot of the waves in the edit, this one is a grower. Dusty Payne and Yadin Nicol make light work of things you'd sail on by.
Highlight of the day was the 17-year-old brother of local legend Manoa. He blew everyone away.
