Shaping Safi – MOROCCO
from Unai Borda
Iñigo Idigoras “Palotes” and Eduardo Gomez “Peta”. Safi, Morocco.
This two guys decided to make a trip to Morocco. They taught the locals how to fix and shape surfboards. Sourceless and without knowledge about the matter, the locals where unable to do this things so they can continue surfing.
The target was to make them understand shaping basics while sharing an intercultural experience. We learnt that the moroccan hospitality has a well earned reputation. They surprised us being accommodated in their homes, feeding us with their delicious local food and sharing with us the great waves that this country has to offer (we had the opportunity to watch and even surf with legends like Tom Curren or Tim Boal).
Two boards where made in this trip, the first two surfboards shaped in Safi. One was made by Palots, owner from “Ilussions Surfboards” and the other one by the owner of “Peta Surfboards” Peta.
Thanks for all and enjoy them guys.

The Drifter – Rob Machado
from Koastal Media
Iconic surfer and former Pipe Master Rob Machado flew to Indonesia to experience a different kind of surf trip. A journey that would take him way beyond his comfort zone, to the point where he could finally be alone with his thoughts, his desires and the empty perfection of an unnamed Indian Ocean reef. What did he discover? You never stop dreaming. Even when they come true.

Aerial views of Anil surfing his home spot Coconuts surfbreak in Gurubeblia near Weligama, Sri Lanka. While swell conditions have been all but epic on this rather small and a bit messy day, the bird’s eye perspective shot with a quadcoper still captured the great fun Anil has in the surf of his front yard. Filmed on a short morning session with 2 flight batteries on a TBS Discovery Pro. Enjoy the ride! ML★
