The Fortune Wild | Trailer

The Fortune Wild - Trailer from Sitka on Vimeo.

"If a man looks sharply and attentively," wrote Francis Bacon, "he shall see Fortune."

In The Fortune Wild, a new Sitka Films production directed by Ben Gulliver with support from Pacific Wild, a small group of surfers set out to seek their own kind of riches on some of the most remote beaches of the Canadian coast.

Starring Peter Devries and Reid and Arran Jackson, The Fortune Wild follows an expedition to the far-flung shores of Haida Gwaii, a chain of waveswept, lushly forested islands off the British Columbia mainland. Surfing, camping and foraging for food on the area's unspoiled beaches, the three surfers step away from the modern world and into a quieter, more attuned and more self-sufficient existence.

As the days pass, their trip becomes more than a picaresque adventure to paddle out into rarely surfed waves—after being granted permission by Haida elders to visit a hidden area of the Haida homeland, the small crew pitches camp to explore and experience a place where people have lived in partnership with nature for thousands of years. Later, they're joined by fellow surfer Noah Cohen for some final sessions in the area's clear and chilly waters.

"There are a lot of good surf breaks around the world," says Devries, "but it's tough to find a place that compares to the British Columbia coast. The grandeur, the beauty and the culture—it's truly unique and unlike anywhere I've ever been."

The Fortune Wild is about the peace and promise of wild places, but it's also about learning to see the natural world in a more profound and reverent way. Featuring interviews with Severn Cullis-Suzuki, Haida leader and activist Guujaaw and Haida artists Christian White and Gwaliga Hart, it's a glimpse into a system where tradition and respect for the land are values that can't be bought or sold. At a time when economic development and resource extraction and transportation are critical issues for the province and the country, The Fortune Wild is a journey into the heart of what matters most.

One-third documentary, one-third surf and adventure film and one-third storybook wander into the unknown, The Fortune Wild is a beautiful and slightly eccentric look at what makes the West Coast so priceless and so worthy to protect.

Directed and edited by Ben Gulliver
Produced by Rene Gauthier - Sitka Films in association with Pacific Wild
Co-Produced by Gwaliga Hart, Michael Reid, Jeremy Koreski, Greg and Nick Grzybowski

"The film is a homage to Wes Anderson, I always wished he would make a surf film" - Ben Gulliver

Joel Tudor | Malibu Summer

Joel Tudor : Malibu Summer from COAST THRU LIFE on Vimeo.
Was just at the right place, at the right time (unfortunately not the right tripod) to have been able to film the guy who brought back the cool in longboarding, the reason why I picked up a longboard and most probably why you did too: Mr. Joel Tudor.

Amidst the crowd and all the chaos that often goes on in Malibu, Joel always stands out and manages to keep his composure and impeccable style.

Watch out for the guy who almost gets his head knocked off by a red longboard and how Joel just shakes his head and goes on to turn the rest of the wave into art.

You'll also catch a glimpse of Alex Knost surfing, Kameron Brown paddling out, and Allen Sarlo ripping.

Just a simple short film put together to share with you.

Thanks for watching!

Jay Nelson | Local Legendz | Korduroy.Tv

Jay Nelson - Local Legendz from on Vimeo.
Jay Nelson is basically unstoppable. He doesn't let chained fences or conventional design methods get in his way and he makes art that consistently surprises us. He says art is the first thing he was really good at, and working with his hands was always something he wanted to do. Nelson started shaping boards in high school and then transitioned to shaping camper vehicles, tree houses and other artistic but useful pieces of beauty.

In this first episode of our newest series, Local Legendz, Jay shows sketches of designs, walks us through his neighborhood (the Sunset in San Francisco) and tells us a bit about the friends who inspire him along the way. For more of Jay's work, visit and follow him on Instagram @jay.

Single and Unattached

Single And Unattached from COAST THRU LIFE on Vimeo.
Single and Unattached is the first single fin longboard contest in the Philippines. This event high lights for the very first time the traditional, classic style of longboarding in a country where high performance surfing takes center stage. Surfers from all over the nation as well as the globe gathered in Monaliza Point, San Juan, La Union with their heavy single fin logs, leashes unattached, to show off some fancy footwork, joint breaking drop knees, and nasal tip time.
Eventhough the waves that weekend weren't really the glassy perfect peelers we'd expected, it was such a fun, laid-back contest filled with smiles, washed up boards, friends running after their friend's washed up boards, shakas, high fives, love and positive vibrations.
Hopefully, this event makes more Filipinos,young and old, fall in love with this alternaitve side of surfing and appreciate the very basics of this beautiful art form.

Till next year!
