“We need to teach the next generation”.
Fergal Smith isn’t your average surfer. Having grown up on an organic vegetable farm in Ireland, Fergal learned the importance of family, food and a healthy lifestyle from a young age. Despite travelling far and wide in search of waves, Fergal remains true to his roots and continues to live in Ireland to this day having established a community garden on his farm Moy Hill. Desillusion editor Pierre David spent 4 days with Fergal in his hometown of County Clare to gain a deeper insight into Fergal’s world and the importance of living a self sustaining and happy life.
This short film is based on the article “It’s a long way from Clare to here” published in Desillusion Magazine 48 , Tome 4 available on bit.ly/1yyNUC4
Mick Fanning | One Session
from Ryan Moss
This footage was taken somewhere in Mexico back in 2011. I will never forget watching Mick absolutely wreck havoc on this sand point break. We were with Dane, Shane, Benny B. , Bottle,Fisher, and Nutty. Dane and Mick were the clear standouts of the trip. But, it was this session that separated Mick from the rest of the crew and put him in a league of his own when it came to surfing perfect right hand point breaks. Dane walked away with the move of the trip with his crazy turn at Bamba. Mick walked away with the session of the trip hands down.
