‘Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail’ – Ralph Waldo Emerson

A short film showcasing my favourite shots during my travels this year. I had an epic year travelling and documenting surfing around the world. I got to experience some of the most amazing cultures in really cool parts of the world with some great people. I shot my debut full length surf film with Ricardo Christie “LEMONYIP LIVIN” during Autumn at his home in New Zealand. Chased some big swells with Andrew Mooney for our upcoming film “Chasing Shadows” to be released next year.
