Jack Freestone loves to surf. You can’t drag him out of the water. We’d get mad at him for not telling us he was going surfing. But by the third sneaky session us filmer’s caught on.

Clay, half way through a full rotator. I don’t think he was 100% better from his knee surgery earlier in the year, which is a scary thought judging by how hard he was going for it.

Here’s the view from my hut. We had our own perfect right point break to wake up to.

Jack is so gnarly at airs. His success rate of landing those things is incredible.

Dillon Perillo shot at water level on the reef. Dillon is an excellent hula hooper as you will see in the movie.

Droid on a fat boy board he shaped so he could paddle less. He had no problem turning that thing. His surfing was downright amazing on this trip, so refreshing to watch.

The grass you see in the foreground was planted here by the owners of the camp, Paulo and Mario. It took them over two years of patching it together by finding bits and pieces of grass around the island. Our feet thank you guys.

This was the first wave I shot at the beach break. We didn’t score it but man was it fun to surf.

Good thing Conner isn’t the tallest kid. He makes this wave look bigger than it is.

This trip was such an epic time. Every night we would blast some metal, light fireworks, start massive fires and share some beers. There was never a dull moment.

Parker, literally on the throne. A massive snake fell out of a tree right behind the bowl one morning. It scared the shit out of me.

    conner coffins article about their “Electric Wilderness” into the or out of the “box” that is normal society is well written and enticing. But surfing magazine has an article about the amateur writing, publishing, blogging, etc. online world that has the attention of the majority but how the majority of this information is mediocre and nothing substantial
    . So to contradict themselves they have an amateur writer taking over a story?

  4. [...] And legendary surf photographer Tom Carey was there to document all the action. His photos can be found Here [...]
