Desert Point Indulgence with Ozzy Wrong and his Tomahawk

On his recent adventure Ozzy Wright surfed his  6’8″ Tomahawk at one of the worlds longest and gnarliest left handers in the world- Desert Point, Indonesia . The photos and stories of which are slowly being released. We are excited to share a look though photographer Diogo d’Orey lens here.

Waterman and photographer Diogo d’Orey had the following to say on his recent Magicseaweed photo story “Ozzie was riding a 6’8 Joel Fitzgerald twin fin and was going faster then anyone out there he would fit himself on the mid-size ones and just make wave after wave the longest/fastest barrels of the day.”

Ozzie sure is one of a kind, talented, super stoked and ever humble, it is a true delight and honor to be collaborating with him, even more so to see Ozzie still frothing like a grom and doing what he loves. Surfing, Art and Rock & Roll!!

Artwork on board is a colab between Ozzy (inner cosmic rainbow waves) and  Otis Carey (indigenous Australian designs on outer edge). You can see more photos from this trip on Magicseaweed. To see full specs on Tomahawk click here.

Bleach Festival Mocean Event Burleigh photo by Chrystal Fitzgerald

Mocean at Bleach Festival

(M)Ocean was a part of the 2015 Bleach Festival, held at Burleigh Heads here on Australia’s East Coast on March 22. According to creator, journalist and surfer  Tim Baker, (M)Ocean it is pronounced motion or emotion and is an experimental, cultural form that presents surfing as a performing art, rather than a competitive sport.  When interviewed about (M)Ocean by Swellnet,  Baker said he ‘envisioned a stage to be set up on the point at Burleigh, with live music directed out over the lineup.  A select group of  surfers will all be riding boards from a historic quiver, from solid Hawaiian timber slabs to 16 foot hollow ply toothpicks, balsa malibu, okapis, right through to modern high performance foam and fibreglass and everything in between.  Surfboard collector Carl Tanner has very kindly opened up his collection to us to use on the day, including Michael Peterson’s original board from Morning of the Earth – which is slightly terrifying!’

(M)Ocean went pretty much according to Baker’s vision and on March  22, 2015,  Joel Fitzgerald and myself, joined in the historic Bleach on Burleigh (M)ocean event.  We were excited to be a part of the festivities and drove up the coast from Byron to Burleigh with our friends Leah Dawson and Dave Rastovich.  Surfer Leah Dawson had the honor of riding the MP board, additional traditional and magnificently handcrafted boards were on lend by master craftsman Tom Wegener, whom was also a part of (M)ocean. Joel rode Wegener’s timber board called #1, along side surfing legends Rusty Miller, Wayne Dean, Rabbit Bartholemu, Dave Rastavoich, Neal Purchase Jr., Josh Constable and young guns Ellis EricsonAsher Pacey just to name a few.

The festivities opened with a welcome to country and ceremonial dance by local Aboriginal Australians and talented Didgeridoo player.  Ancient, timeless, cosmic healing vibrations from the ritual were carried by the sea breezes out over the pandamus trees along the black rocks to the surf break and far beyond. The pointy edged buildings of Surfers Paradise a rigid and ominous backdrop to the playful dancers of the sea. Live music played from the stage where the amazing  Band of Frequencies  cosmic waves made the tiny swells surfable.

As surfers moved in and out of the lineup, the Band of Freqs were joined by special guests Dave on the drums, Rusty on harmonica, and Leah. Whom performed some of her original songs, singing as well as playing the uke.  The fantastical event finished up with one man band Kim Chruchill jamming into the night as young and old were moving to the beats of so many beautiful artists in motion. From our hearts to yours, a very big mahalo nui loa for all who turned up to support this expressive experimental festival, and extra gratitude to Tim Baker. Thank you for conceptualizing and bringing into fruition your dream (M)Ocean, we had a blast. Here are a few photos for you all to enjoy.

Aloha

Joel Fitzgerald surfing in the tube at Teahupoo, Tahiti, 2003

Tahiti

After about a ten year lapse I am back in Tahiti again. My wife and I arrived Saturday and we will be here for a few weeks. I started surfing here about 20 years ago…when there were far fewer surfers in the water. Before leaving I shaped some special boards for the trip.  Sean Davey  award winning photographer and friend of mine took this photo of me below last time I was here. Really hoping I can get some more waves like this again and looking forward catching up with some old friends….
