The 20-minute film follows Orewa surfer Travis Salahub as he tries to find “legendary” Hibiscus Coast surfer Shaun Batterton. It also features surfing and skate footage from other Coasties, including Element and Vans skater Chase Collins. All the skate footage was filmed at Stanmore Bay skatepark.
Chris, aged 20, says he made the film as a reminder of good times with good mates because he expects to be leaving the area for work.
“It was definitely bros, not pros,” he says. “I wanted to capture those mornings at great surfing spots.
It was while studying photography at university that Chris discovered he preferred story telling with video.
He went on to make surfing and wakeboarding videos for The Edge TV.
