Luminary was the first of the longboard DVDs that I made with a lot of help from Luke Sorensen. This DVD featues Beau Young, Grant Thomas and Jye Byrnes as well as Kassia Meador, Belen Connolly, Mary Bagalso and Keliana Woolsey as they trip through the Mentawai Islands in search of the perfect longboard wave.
Dane Wilson and Jye Byrnes surfing pristine waves on the mid north coast of NSW. Stephen Slater and Darren Leddingham surf the Goldy and Byron Bay and then we trip of the NSW south coast with Grant Thomas, Dane Wilson, Lucas Proudfoot and Jye Byrnes.
Music by Richard Clapton, Beau Young, Max Judo, The Whitlams, Mason Jennings, The Feeling Groovies, The Beachniks, Pepper, Kane and Walmsley, Lazy Susan, Shutterspeed, Calling Kaiser and Brindle.
Style was the second of my longboard DVDs. This movie was set mainly in Byron Bay featuring three styles of longboarders who live, work and play in the area. The surfers featured are Beau Young, Gareth Donovan and Dane Thomas. The movie also includes a segment featuring Dane Wilson and Jye Byrne as they surf the fabled point break of Raglan in New Zealand. As a bonus there is some footage shot at the Pipeline in Hawaii.
The movie also features a sound track from a range of Australian bands including Xaviour Rudd, Custom Kings, Beau Young, Mal and the Longboarders, Max Judo, Carus Thompson, David Simmons and Wil Connor.
