"Slim Pigs" in procress

"Slim Pigs" in process from OH DAWN on Vimeo.
Super8 film from the making of two "Slim Pig" logs. Kind of a "high-performance" version of a classic, pig inspired singlefin, made during last summer in the backyard behind the old workshop in Copenhagen. Thinner, lighter, but still decent trim-a-bility... More at:

FISH FRY 2015 from Deus ex Machina on Vimeo.
The Deus Fish Fry in Bali: a day for the young, the old and every age in between. The event is all about appreciating and riding a vast array of different surfboards. With an eclectic array of wave riding craft planted on the grassy knoll down at Tugu Beach, board enthusiasts admired and rode through the morning.

The girls and guys alike cross-stepped, trimmed and cut back on short, long, thick and thin surfboards. Once again, we were gifted with perfect surf and weather. The clean and open-faced Tugu walls were wonderful blank canvases for the various styles of riding. Along with the boards we condone sharing waves, stories and laughs.

Over the years we’ve experienced a range of conditions for our event. Whether it’s lake-like, bombing or anywhere in between, the one thing that stays the same is the vibe. And if this video is anything to go by, the vibe was damn good.

Under 9 Foot & Single 2015

Under 9 Foot & Single 2015 from Deus ex Machina on Vimeo.
Busting down the door for our 2nd Under 9’ & Single! In this division at the 9‘ Festival surfers were able to ride anything under 9’ with a single fin. Unsuprisingly the majority of the contestants opted for 70’s style shortboards.

Thrown together in two piles of ten for a half hour each, it was more of an expression session than a contest but waves were judged and finalists were made. In the last 30 minutes of the 5th Annual Deus 9’ & Single Festival, 8 single fin shortboarders traded off perfect waves. Each surfer rode a wave on one set alone… 8 waves for 8 surfers in one set! We couldn’t have asked for more.

Ladies Log Fest 9 Foot & Single 2015

Welcome to the second annual Ladies Log Fest at the Deus 9’ & Single. The Canggu right-hander looked so damn classy with the ladies in the water. The ladies division was a highlight during our event. They shared more waves and stoke than any of the other competitors and though we finished with a winner, the event never once seemed like competition.

The men’s 9’ & Single Longboard division… yeeww! What a cracker it was. After a wild start to the event, conditions cleaned up for the final day of this world-renowned longboarding competition. Tyler, Harrison, Thomas and Zye hit the water in bombing and clean Pererenan River Mouth perfection.

Never before considered a longboard wave and rarely ridden by longboarders thanks to the small and competitive line-up, it was a pleasure to watch these four surfers show that heavy single fins aren’t limited to shoulder high surf.

The final started with Harrison riding a bomb from out the back all the way onto the sand. Spectators cheered as he attempted to run off his board and up the beach before tripping and landing flat on his back. From then on it was 30 minutes of non-stop surf, with every competitor riding a handful of over-head waves.

This event reached a new peak in 2015 and every single beachgoer was entertained with world-class longboarding of the like that has previously only been seen on film.
