Please meet, Carles

Carles Medina is not your average photographer, first because is not. He is an architect from Barcelona, and that explains a lot of things: The fact that he prefers shooting in analog, with his favourite tool a Yashica T5, and the fact that he sees the world with a different eye than most people.

His interest in buildings and architecture helps him to build his sense of aesthetic. But lately, his eye went in a different direction, or horizon we should say:  the ocean. Barcelona lately, have been pretty active in the surf scene, which is unusual when we know the small potential of surf there. But the mixture of the life of this city, and the skate vibe, gives it a unique touch to anybody who chooses the “sea” way there. Because there, like every big city with a small swell, we “really” choose surfing, as a way of living, as a way to see the world. Carles like most of the young people from Barcelona, got his roots from skateboarding, so the surf for him, is far away from the performance and contest industry, is all about sharing good moment with his friends. And if we want to be sure of this, just ask to him what is the happiness for him: “a fresh Corona at sunset, after a good surf session with good friends”.

So, Carles Medina is definitely not your average photographer. And we hope that one day he will reach his goals to have “A house with a big garden in front of any beach” Why? “To make bbqs!” Simply.

The New New Adventurer Club is a crew of photographers from Hossegor, France who explore the world each with a different approach, looking for local inspiration everywhere, and magical moments to share. Since 3 years now, they’ve seen countless magical places, and met incredible people to share perfect moments. Marie-laure Daillut, is one of them. Hyper creative, a free spirit and world traveler. From Australia to Hawaii, Amsterdam to NYC, Marie-laure, knows how to find the perfect spot to be outdoors, enjoy a cold beer and admire a sunset. Though she’s been all around the world, her favorite place is her home town, Hossegor.

We asked her to share with us, what inspires her most about this place and her favorite moments in this surf town in the South of France.

 

“Hossegor, It’s the perfect place to spend a weekend and explore the French coast.  You can have it all here – a medley of the French lifestyle, delicious food, the proximity with nature (endless coast and forest), and the most perfect beach break you will find in Europe for surfing. And in Summer, the sun sets is around 9/10 pm, so you can have a full day of activity and then share a sunset with your friends and a Corona. Autumn is also a perfect time to discover this part of France. The forest is the most beautiful during this period, and waves are pumping everyday.

Here are a few of my favorite moments in Hossegor:

- Get lost in the tiny center of Hossegor, on a sunny morning , taking a brunch with my friend, and planning the day with them

- Celebrating the beginning of summer with friends at a picnic by the lake of Hossegor.

- A little walk to the beach at Les Casernes to make a bonfire, enjoy a not so crowded sunset

-        Walking thourgh the forest, on early september, to see the forest turning red

-        When the low tide fit with the sunset, and you can enjoy small waves with your longboard, and the perfect light.

-        At 3pm , when the sun is high, and the only way to escape to him, it’s to be hide behind a beach umbrella, and enjoying a really fresh corona .

-        In summer, When you can sleep late, because you know that the sun is not gonna leave soon.

Please Meet , Jordy Maxwell

I'm a 27 year old electrician. Living in Perth, Western Australia. I live 45minutes from the beach, and usually conditions are not very good, so I have to force myself to be creative sometimes with what I shoot. I like shooting unsaturated, cropped, minimalist images. I like trying to find the art in an image and create a mood, and I think that reflects how I'm feeling at that point in my life.
I'm engulfed in the style of surfing. Single fins are my preferred choice to surf and to shoot. Something so elegant and graceful about capturing a single fin flowing down the line. I am addicted to style and the surf culture.
I have a van, with a bed in the back, and often find myself going down south of Western Australia, (Margies, yallingup, Denmark) with my dog and finding secluded places under the stars to spend the night. The rugged and raw beaches and coastline makes for some beautiful images.

I shoot in Perth and down south mostly and currently I'm located in Exmouth, North Western Australia, where there is a vast difference in colours and vibes.

Pleas meet, Toby .

My name is Toby Butler; I am 19 years old and am a surf lifestyle photographer that’s based in the South West of the UK. After a couple years of college, I realized that I needed to get out in the real world and fully commit if I wanted to make this lifestyle happen. I needed to travel and experience different ways of taking in this world we live amongst. My main goal has always been to document adventures. To capture a series of images that I am then able to combine to create a visual story. I was introduced to a lifestyle next to the ocean from a young age and since then have slowly grown up looking for adventures alike. I chase the experiences that come with being out in the wild and have become bent on trying to shine a light on different lifestyles that intrigue me, it’s a simple life and I wouldn’t have it any way else.
