For todays #VSHAPPYMONDAY we’re doing a shout out to one of the best. Henrik Purienne, we take a bow.
Velvet Sea has always kept an eye on Jamie Krupp’s talent, knowing that sooner or later he would transform out of grommet hood and add some extra meat onto those skinny bones. Jamie’s latest clip shows that the time may have already come, digging into his rail turns and throwing the fins with the best of…
For todays #VSHAPPYMONDAY we’re doing a shout out to one of our favorite Aussie photographers Akila Berjaoui and her amazing celebration of the female form.
Velvet Sea is now partnering with some awesome events in Los Angeles and New York, keeping our finger on the pulse and more importantly, you informed, with the best parties going down.
We thought we’d throw together a post, with the best of the web, to help nurse that hangover and get you moving into the day!
Globe have just released the trailer to Strange Rumblings In Shangri La, the new film by the always on point, Joe G. Shot over 2 years, the film documents the team as they scour the world searching for spots that you couldn’t even dream up after a bag of magic mushrooms. Year Zero was, in…
This video was made by Harrison Dancaster who usually shoots stills but doesn’t mind flicking the switch over to video mode to craft together sweet little edits like this one. You may remember a video he made from another trip down south with Brett Burcher and Scott ‘Whippet’ Dennis charging 10 feet slabs clocking up…
Two short films have just dropped which are certainly worth your time. The subjects in each of the clips are from California and both share a left of centre, outcast type, personality. The films feature Malibu surfer, Dillon Perrillo and Ventura label, Iron & Resin and are shot and cut by Morgan…
From the genius lens and vision of Kai Neville comes Epokhe’s External World (1.5): “Join us for another pilgrimage into the raw & uninhabited landscapes that have become a refuge for the EPØKHE creators. An external world of unearthly women, waves and industrial backdrops. The film takes a minimalistic approach inspired by the design and…
Three clips, all worth your time, dig in…
– The Golden City –
– Matt Banting and The Next Three Years –
Good buddies of Velvet Sea and all round artistic wonderboys, Brent Smith and Lee McConnell are holding their second GOON ISLAND art show titled, ‘On Karma Seas’ on Thursday Nov 8th at Black Penny, Surry Hills. If you haven’t seen their work before, make sure you get to the show, it will blow your mind.…
We love a DIY attitude here at Velvet Sea. It’s what we were built on and live by. This clip by young south coast up-and-comer, Louis Gillick is pure DIY fun and those waves, wow.
There’s just something about the way Dillon Perillo surfs. In our opinion, he’s a modern day Tom Curren. The same smooth, drawn out lines, with a fresh twist. Anyway, enough talk, watch the clip and see for yourself. Short, sharp and punchy!
Every time something by Mickey Smith drops, we drop everything and glue our eyeballs to the screen. This time it’s Hidden Lives with good friend and world class charger, Tom Lowe. Their work has always resonated with us at Velvet Sea, moody, sometimes dark productions that focus on film making just as much as the…
Velvet Sea does not own any of these images, we pull them from various blogs and tumblrs for your enjoyment. If you own any of them and would like them removed or credited, please let us know.
Summer time in LA might not conjure up images of perfect waves but you’d be surprised what you can find. The Pagan brothers have been really impressing us of late, churning out edit after edit, with one brother in the water and the other behind the lens and in edit booth. This is their latest…
To use their words, “Nti Sheeto (Knee-sheet-o) is a surf film illustrating the contrast between the psychedelic and magical natural wonders of Indonesia with the surreal and demented trappings of it’s darker nighttime street culture.”. It’s superbly directed by Dion Agius and shot and cut by Blake Myers. If you haven’t seen this film yet,…
This is beyond brilliant.
Redefining your typical surf clip.
Emphasising on the beauty of the ocean with the stylish flow of Asher Pacey.
Pleasure to watch.
Simple, no fuss, self explanatory title. Here are two clips, worlds apart both in theme, style and place of birth. One is from Australia, shot and cut by young South Coast film maker, Wade Carroll and features the talent of Ty Watson. The other is a tasty, left field, lookbook/campaign video for Dion Ochner from…
By Dane Singleton.
TOMBSTONERS by Toby Cregan featuring Matt King, with a cameo by Connor O’Leary.
This is worth your time, so dig in and enjoy.
Otis Carey shredding Coffs Harbour. Shot and edited by Harry Triglone
Matt King and Dane Singleton produce great things together. Here is another clip from just a couple surfs, couple different angles from the same wave.
Be aware of this young kid, Matt King. He is from the south coast of NSW which for a professional surfer, can be a little hard to get noticed. He and his talented friend Dane Singleton produce these little clips on the reg. Fun lookin’ waves eh?
On Monday February 4th, 6pm, Dale Bigeni, who won the grand final of Secret Walls, is having a mini exhibition down at Beach Burrito, Newtown. There will be 10 original Dale Bigeni pieces based on and around tattoo designs. Expect Skulls, Snakes, Banners, Daggers and all that other cliche goodness. All of the pieces will be…
From our friends at What Youth. Features 2 cameos, you will know em, but won’t have seen them much from the What Youth clan. Enjoy!
John John just premiered his movie Done in Hawaii just a few weeks ago. This is what he has accumulated over the last month in Hawaii. Not in his movie, just a web clip. But not your average web clip, surfing and skating by Greyson Fletcher this clips the shit!
Kleiner is an outstanding lensman. A maven. His work is brilliant, simple as that.
Odds and ends is the final film to come out of the Creative Destruction project. It’s “leftovers” but the quality of footage, not to mention the rawness, really blows you away.
Dive in and never forget how fucking awesome Runamuk Visuals and Wade Goodall are.
This is a short post on a short clip but one we feel needs to be watched, if only for the insanely large punt from Noa Deane.
James Dean on a skateboard.
The Glass Onion Society is an expresso bar and boutique on the Central Coast of NSW. It’s a creative hub in a once stagnant place. People drive miles out of their way to drink in the vibe of the place and their brilliant coffee. The boys at the store recently held an Art Attack night. Mambo…
RB at it again. Some of the best skater’s going at the mo, enjoy!
Here are two clips well worth a watch. Pure surf psych shit, Enjoy.
The premier for this short was last night. People came, people watched and people drunk beer and spirits. It was radical. If you weren’t at the premier, well, we forgive you and present this to you here to watch in full, online. Enjoy!
Here is a piece on Jordy Smith and his preperation and thoughts surrounding events. After watching this, if Trestles is over 3 ft and he’s on the fluro railed dreamboat, it’s safe to say that the big man will be on the podium.
Riley Blakeway followed Chippa Wilson and Nathan Fletcher for 14 months and came up with this, somewhat, ‘mini movie’. 22 minutes long, jam packed with technical jumps and fucking huge pitts. What more could you ask for, really?
Thanks Riley and Analog.
Velvet Sea contributor, Mambo artist and all round awesome guy, Luke Okay, is competing at the next Secret Walls against Ape7. It takes place in Sydney next week and if you have never heard of Secret Walls, it’s a live 90 min art battle. The artists battle against each other the same way Em did…
Tight edit by Darcy Ward of Jack Freestone.
TOME 4: this is alex “a video portrait that pays tribute to Californian longboarder/musician Alex Knost”. Whether you like him or not, he’s been an influential figure in modern surfing and is more talented than most. Both his band and his surfing are world class and this video portrait by DSL perfectly fits with Knost…
Ryan Callinan has had a rocky few years with injuries. Here is the teaser for his 12 min mini movie coming out very soon and it will be available for free download. Jay Grant has put this together so check it out.
Wilko’s second Fiji clip is quite good.
That’s an understatement. He’s totally ripping.
‘Print with Blood’ by Desillusion Magazine. They have been on the road again devoting issues to amazing people. This is Tome 3 with Ozzie Wright.
Dion and Joe G are a good mix. Throw a wave pool with ramps, and some of Dubai’s sexiest sprouters and you have Electric Blue Heaven. Actual surf heaven.
Here are two clips that we like.
One Surfing, one Skating.
The Shop Next Door in Manly do it right. Did you notice the three salty, surfboard loving folk on the cover of this months ASB magazine? Well, they were the boys from The Shop Next Door. Taylor Eaton, the chief of it all, has got his mitts on some of the worlds more unique foam…
Kidult is “the problem child who paints in a righteous, primary and no-limit way with the use of an extinguisher.” He’s taking action against the current commercialisation of graffiti by hitting the streets with paint. Stores like Colette, Supreme and Hermes’ are amongst his victims, all of which have used “graffiti” in recent times to promote…
no need for words…
Desillusion magazine have really nailed it with their last two issues. Both have featured prominent, leaders of the game, as guest editors. First up it was Trevor ‘Trouble’ Andrew, with DSL’s ten year anniversary issue, and secondly they got in Andrew Reynolds. To accompany each issue DSL teamed up with Nixon to shoot and edit…
Sam Bruton from Sydney takes pictures of people in there homes and puts them on this little space on the web.
The world’s a-been-a-changing of late. Every man and his dog has a blog, a webpage, whatever. We are all now living most of our lives online. Everything is faster, quicker, shorter. Give me now and then give me again once my web page has refreshed. The net is a huge bin of knowledge, and crap, and we want it before it’s even ready to be devoured.
To the Friday, I’m In Love crew,
Thank you for making my Fridays such a splendorous day and for kick starting my weekend.
P.S. I think you are the reason why I get so excited and overly drunk every weekend.
Sincerely, Velvet Sea. X
Here is the third instalment of Nicholas Damen’s mini series ‘One Day One Slay’. Here Nick features Jack Lynch, a blogger & a logger with style.
The photo’s you see below were taken during a helicopter shoot for Craig Anderson’s Innersection sometime last year.
This is Nicholas Damen’s short film. We will let him explain what it’s all about down below. But one things for sure, this aint no dream. It’s real. Very real.
There is a lot of crap getting out in the WorldWideWeb these days, amongst that is some well worth watching, quality clips. Riley Blakeway’s show reel is one of those clips. The man has been pumping out quality for a few years now so its no surprise that his show reel is of the highest quality.
The big South African, Jordy Smith, has decided to join the ever growing list of surfers with websites.
Terry Richardson, if you don’t no Terry he is the man behind the lens to shoot the 2010 Pirelli Calendar. This video is a little old but never hurts to watch it again, and again… and again! He is the KING check out his DIARY HERE and this video is sure to give you a look at how lucky/amazing this guy is.
Wow! Man it feels good to be a Friday. Beer in hand, amber liquid sliding down the throat and iPod speakers pumping onto the balcony while we stare into the sun and try to rid our body of that horrendous, winter pale look.
