The Beaten Track

Maz Quinn knows a thing or two about finding surf. He’s happy clocking up hundreds of miles along vast stretches of the New Zealand coastline. ‘The Beaten Track’ is a trek through our countryside, to those familiar places you know will deliver the goods.

DGZ issue 11 | Sneak Peek

In the Autumn 2015 issue of DGZ we travel from the tail of NZ, all the way to the tip and everywhere in between with Asher Pacey, Rangi Ormond and Jesse Steelman. We follow the journey of two friends, Tom and Fiona, who cycled from from Santander in Spain all the down to Peniche in Portugal, surfing along the way. Dylan Stott reports on Kiwis abroad in the Celtic shore, with Alex Dive and Ryan Watts in the feature Slainte Eire, Ireland. Christchurch band Salad Boys and Auckland MC Diaz Grimm round out our musician files and the talented illustrator, Henrietta Harris nabbing the back cover and artist spotlight. Filling in the gaps we have department features with Ozzie Wright, Jesse Steelman, Marc Moore, Pama Davies and much much more.

Alex Gray, Josh Mulcoy, and Pete Devries went on a journey through the remote Aleutian Arc of Alaska, the birthplace of storm systems that send swell back to the rest of us in civilization. They braved heavy weather, flew on rickety prop planes, and ate seal meat en route to discovering one of the best cold-water slabs in the world. The film follows the cold-water crew as they traverse the island on quads, tracking pulses of swell to remote bays and never before surfed points. Set against the stunning volcanic backdrop of the Aleutian Islands, The Cradle of Storms is cold-water surf exploration at its finest.


Director/Producer: Mario Hainzl and Andreas Jaritz

The Old, the Young & the Sea embarks on an adventurous documentary trip along the Atlantic
Coast of France, Spain and Portugal. The movie frames a vivid snapshot of Europe’s post-modern coastal culture, which is significantly influenced by the hippie heritage of the 1960s, modern surfing popindustry and the vital relationship of coastal inhabitants with Mother Nature. The movie introduces the audience into a world of cultural diversity, surprising encounters and the search for the spirit of traveling. For the movie’s protagonists surfing is a pervading lifestyle.All sorts of ocean lovers have their eyes on a very slim stretch of land and water. Documenting this stretch the documentary captures a schematic picture of vibrant European life through the very personal stories of the movie’s protagonists.
