Paddle In Surf Sea Stoke
“This was an epic winter day, howling offshore, big swell and heaps of
crew frothing around, zipping up or lingering in the dustbowl carpark, watching
from their troop carriers, prados and landcruisers. Some big wipe outs had been
going down on the reefs in the area and im sure some of the best waves of peoples
lives. It was a bit on the heavy side for me so I just shot. Two of my close friends
knew where they wanted to be and no one at the time seemed to be onto it. As they
paddled out a big humpback whale cruised up right beside them; the only other
soul to share the lineup with them. I knew then that they would be sweet, a pretty
good omen. Angus Andrew (pictured) got the first one that came through and it was
pretty much just on from there. Just the two of them going wave for wave while I
shot from a cave in the dunes.”

Heres a little video about an Englishman with a passion for surfing and motorcycles and fusing them together in a pretty rad way! A little creative inspiration for a mission the folk at Sea Stoke are currently conjuring up…

PangeaSeed in collaboration with 1xRUN, Residencia Gorila, World Art Destinations and Juxtapoz Latin America are pleased share with you the results of Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans – Mexico Expedition. The week-long mural festival took place July 20-28, 2014 on the island of Isla Mujeres, Mexico. The mission of Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans – Mexico Expedition is simple: our goal was to raise awareness for the conservation of the ocean and greatly needed protection for the whale sharks and manta rays off the Yucatan peninsula, by means of art and creativity.

For this pioneering project, we collaborated with a select group of internationally acclaimed contemporary artists: Curiot, Saner, Nosego, Shark Toof, Tristan Eaton, Celeste Byers, Meggs, Cinzah Merkens, Tatiana Suárez, Hannah Stouffer, Smithe, Aaron Glasson, Yoh Nagao, Vexta and Pelucas. These artists were given the opportunity to swim with and study whale sharks and oceanic manta rays and experience these majestic giants in their natural environment. Both of these iconic ocean animals are listed as species threatened with extinction on the IUCN Red List of Endangered Species. Despite the protection efforts of several countries, these animals are considered highly lucrative for the Asian shark fin trade and the growing mega aquarium trade both adding pressures on their already vulnerable populations. In turn, inspired by their personal animal encounters, the artists created a series of 14 large-scale ocean-themed murals on Isla Mujeres to help educate and raise greatly needed awareness within the local and tourist communities for the plight of these animals and oceans.

Furthermore, educational workshops engaged local youth to learn more about whale sharks and what they can do to help save our seas. Here is a wicked recap of the festival:
