This looks like a lot of fun.
0 Surf for 8 weeks in Sunny little Jersey, Channel Islands. What to do... Tarp Surfing! of course. Check out this vid of some serious land barrels.
Watch this video that follows tarp surfing pioneers Dodge Weirath and Wyatt Brady as they explain how they created tarp surfing.
The Endless Winter - A Very British Surf Movie is a forth coming feature length documentary and web-series the surfing scene in Britain and how it all started.
The documentary is still being made and you can follow it's progress through The Endless Winter website. Pro-surfers Mark 'Egor' Harris and Mitch Corbett are travelling across of the UK on a road trip tracing the wild and unusual roots of British surf culture.
I'm really looking forward to the final film.
I am in love with these 3 videos shot and edited by Riley Blakeway. You may know already that I love surf culture, not that I know how to surf, but these videos also made me realise how much I miss the beach.
If you are stuck at work or home and need an escape, watch these videos and dream of your next free spriited, fun loving summer holiday.

I never thought it was possible to surf in the Arctic Circle, but turns out I was wrong. Arctic Surf by Yassine Ouhilal follows five surfers trying to find waves no one has ever ridden before. Yassine Ouhilal specializes in pioneering and documenting new and unchartered surf destinations. For the past 10 years he has photographed dozens of locations around the globe, including several in Arctic regions.
Yassine's unique style superimposes unlikely scenarios with otherworldly settings. From swimming in the Arctic Ocean to capture a surfer in action with a snowcapped background to driving 4000 miles across the Sahara desert in search of unspoiled waves, he will stop at nothing to create images that set themselves apart. The reason? He loves what he does.
All I can say about this video is that it's chillingly beautiful.
Caballitos de totora are watercrafts made of a natural plant called Totora used by Peruvian fishermen for the past 3000 years. Still used today, the fishermen use them to transport their nets, collect fish in their inner cavity and ride the waves back into shore. Could this have been the first form of surfing?
In this video, Sofia Mulanovich together with world-class surfer Sally Fitzgobbons and junior Nadja de Col exchanged their boards to test the surfing quality of these Peruvian boats.
I want one.
After my recent surf related post, I found out there is a Surfing event in Dubai that starts this weekend and will run every weekend till 1st May.
Details from Surf Dubai page on Facebook:
Under the patronage of the Dubai Sports Council, Surf Dubai will be holding the Sunset Open, the first ever official surfing event in the U.A.E.
I love surf culture and my wish is to be able to surf one day, provided I am capable of waking up at the crack of dawn to take some lessons first, which so far looks very unlikely. So for now, I will just continue to admire from a distance.
Splinters is a documentary directed and filmed by Adam Pesce, it's about the evolution of indigenous surfing in Papua New Guinea.
