Byron Bay Surf Festival 2012. Belly boards & alaia odyssey

Tom Wegener has been at the center of the alaia movement.
With a shortie and a hawaiian shirt
“Tom Wegener’s odyssey with the rebirth of the alaia has led down a path back in history that gets bigger and more travelled the further back it goes.  Tom  will discuss the vibrant belly board movement that went around the world 100 years ago. The little wood body board has been the centre of surfing for a very long time.  Now, with the discovery of Paulownia wood we can make really good belly boards and experience this super fun style of surfing.  Then Tom will discuss the more in depth aqua dynamics of the alaia and how flex, edges and gentle curves work together to hold the wood into a steep wave’s face.”

Ryan Burch finless tubes

God Music from 'The Reef' starring Ryan Burch from Jon Frank on Vimeo.

In his most adventurous project to date, Richard Tognetti takes musicians and surfers to the rugged surf coast and tough desert landscape of northern Western Australia to create a new performance piece at the intersection of music and nature.

Travelling with Tognetti to world heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef, making music and surfing with the locals, is a remarkable collection of artists: photographer Jon Frank, director Mick Sowry, composer Iain Grandage, didgeridoo player Mark Atkins, singer Steve Pigram and the young musicians of ACO2.

Together they’ll create a performance using music and film to further delve into the links between surfing, the ocean, landscape and music previously illuminated in Musica Surfica and The Glide.

The Reef is a co-production by the ACO and Tura New Music, created at Ningaloo Reef in May 2012.

Rabbits Foot, Ari Browne

Rabbits Foot | Ari Browne from Ryan Lovelace on Vimeo.

In the segment of Rabbit's Foot-ery, Byron Bay local Ari Browne puts it down it on the 6th version of the Rabbit's Foot at a quick sunrise session before the day's responsibilities set in. In this one, the nineteen year old Mr.Browne is surfing at Lennox Head after no more than 8 sessions in varied conditions over two weeks...Stoking!

Ari is one of the coolest and most potential-ridden people I've met in my travels and rides this design beautifully. I'm really pleased that he now owns this board, as they seem to have a pretty solid connection from the go!
