Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better – Albert Camus
Surfing is freedom. Getting on your surfboard means disappearing, disconnecting from the stress and the pains of the world. Surfing is that neverending source of energy that fills us with the joy to feel, to share. We are free when gliding on the water, whether we share a wave, we lose a wave, we nail a wave. We become the moment, and that generates joy. Sharing that freedom, that power with those around us, makes the simple act of waveriding more meaningful. That is what it means to be free, to grow, to share, to laugh, to focus, to breathe, to be. Surfing is freedom, and it will always be.
Out of all the footage I recorded last year in Salias, I have been creating and compiling different videos… it was a fruitful festival, and my camera shot from the competition to the free sessions.
This one is about freedom. It’s about the people who get together at these events to share some waves with friends, because in the end, that’s what it’s all about: having a good time, learning, sharing.
