Chasing the Midnight sun

Chasing the Midnight sunThu, 5 December 2013

Filmed and edited by Mikey Corker, The beginning of the Southbound series follows a crew of surfers as they road trip from Norway to Portugal in search of the best waves the Atlantic coast has to offer. Episode 1 starts in Norway, the land of extremes. Usually seen covered under a blanket of snow in winter, we now see it in summer, where there is so much sunlight that the crew are able to find and surf some great waves after midnight in some majestic environments. As well as some local surfers we bump into South African wandering surf gypsy Andrew Lange who keeps us entertained with some smooth lines and some soulful tunes all played out in the shadow of some incredible northern peaks.http://youtu.be/4SLRUUpoGPU.

A fun edit I made of myself surfing the icey cold waters of Clifton 1st and some of Lldadnou, both in the mother city of South Africa. With biting the Gopro between my teeth I was able to get this sick angle! Shot with the standard Gorpo Hero 2..

Kunye

KunyeWed, 20 November 2013

Was it a dream? Was it a folk-tale? Did these protagonists come here to fight on old battlegrounds or did they come in celebration? Perhaps they just looking for a journey, a chance to travel back to the start, to rediscover their love for the bike. Inspired by TS Eliot’s Little Gidding, this short film tells the story of the 2012 Single Speed World Champs held in Africa for the first time..
