There’s a great story behind this prog-surf film. Riley Blakeway was an aspiring surf film-maker with incredible talent and a handfull of small film projects to his name. Chippa Wilson was a relatively unknown but amazing aerial surfer without the opportunity to show the world what he could do. In 2009, they won STAB magazine’s Little Weeds competition, respectively taking out the film-maker and surfer prizes.
The guys packed a huge deal of promise, flair and desire. They’ve worked together countless times since, but their most anticipated collaboration is NOW, an Analog Moving Picture Project. It premieres on October 29 at Sydney’s National Grid Gallery. Like Modern Collective, it’s a window into the future of surfing.
