“Intimasea” is a short film I made, commissioned by the elegant, classical swimwear label Seea. The film features Seea ambassadors Leah Dawson, Lola Mignot, Hallie Rohr, Karina Rozunko, Mele Saili, and Makala Smith. “Intimasea” celebrates the style, grace and beauty that is particular to women’s surfing.
For me personally, it’s always a joy to shoot women’s surfing. Unfortunately, when I was a grom, there weren’t many girls and women in the water. I went through high school knowing only one girl who surfed with us. Back then, lineups tended to be very macho affairs — very competitive, crowded with full-on sword fights. Nowadays, the tables have completely turned, especially where I live.
I for one am completely stoked to share waves with lady sliders.
They bring a unique and beautiful and gentler energy to surfing culture; it is a privilege and a pleasure and, above all, an inspiration to share time in the ocean with sea sisters.
