Though I’ve never surfed, I’m obsessed with surfing, so this is xclnt beyond words. Australian surfer Carel Olivier showcases his hometown beach and his incredible skills to the songs Britney Sea by Wolf Asylum and my Long Road Ahead [off Goodbye Monday Blue (2009) and Reflected.10×10 (2012)].
Welcome to my first surf reel. This is me doing what I love…
It's hard not having all the best equipment to do what I want to do, which makes it difficult to compete against all the other filmmakers and to make a name for yourself and get rewarded. But, people are seeing my videos from all over the world and getting people stoked. I love putting my hometown, Jeffreys Bay, out there, showing people what an amazing place this is.
All of it wouldn't be possible without the support of people in the J-bay community and the Victory family.
