THE MOTOR-SURFER

.........................................................

Documenting life during the first attempt at restoring a vintage motorcycle.

Similar to the zen -like feeling that is realized through surfing,
motorcycle repair can elevate the mind to a meditative state that eludes time and space...
Meaning I obsess over it, get frustrated, yell, laugh at myself and overall waste a lot of time.

Monday

Canadian Surf Film Festival... really?... Yes, really.

"The Canadian Surf Film Festival is a dream come true for a small group of lifelong Halifax surfers. Their wish? To watch new and old surf films on the silver screen with their friends. And to be able to celebrate surf culture – one unique to Canadian surfing."
Canadian surfing...hahahaha. Sorry that was rude. Ok, ok, Canada does have some rippers like the Bruhwheilers and a small handful of really gnarly half-man, half polar-bears that don't mind surfing next to Killer Whales and dodging icebergs on the inside section... it just sounds really funny... (I hear the Jamaican-Bobsled-Team theme song playing in my head).


Anyways, I'm stoked for our Northerly neighbors and some of the films look pretty rad. Check out the award winning and powerfully artistic Musica Surfica (below). Director Mike Sowry blends classical music with the fin-less surfing of Derek Hynd and Tom Carroll...
