Norway - A Time-Lapse Adventure

We stumbled across this little gem earlier over the weekend and thought it needed to be shared. 

"This is a time-lapse video resulting from a 15,000 km (almost 10,000 miles) long road trip and tens of thousands of images taken along the way over the last 5 months. The journey has covered all of Norway’s 19 counties, from the far south to the Russian border in the Northeast.

The aim of this 5 minute short film is to show the variety of Norway, everything from the deep fjords in the Southwest, to the moon landscape in the North, the Aurora Borealis (Nothern Lights) and the settlements and cities around the country, both in summer and wintertime. The video shows some of the most scenic places in Norway, such as Lofoten, Senja, Helgelandskysten, Geirangerfjorden, Nærøyfjorden and Preikestolen."

It's Better In The Wind - Film

This week we wanted to share a short film Titled ‘It’s Better In The Wind’, with footage taken from rides around the Western United States.

It’s hard not to be envious of the guys involved in ‘It’s Better In The Wind’. Whether you ride motorcycles or not, this short film should, at the very least inspire you to pack a bag and take off on an adventure of your own.

Perfectly scored by Chuck Ragan, (chuckraganmusic.com) this short film by Scott Toepfer perfectly embodies what it is to be on the road with your mates.

Released now in 2011 we came a little to the party, but in this case, I think it’s better late than never.

“When we started it was all about finding something new, finding something outside of our comfort zone.”

“We all found out something about ourselves over the last couple of years doing this.”

Ashley Ward - Surf

First of all, we are so stoked to welcome Ash Ward from Eagle Sword Surfboards to the Wanderers Co team, as an ambassador / surfer / shaper / legend.

 

We first met Ash as any one does in the 21st century, over Instagram and Email. We were immediately drawn to his thirst for life and adventure, and the fact he rips and makes amazing boards helped too (still waiting on our first one hey mate) ;). Growing up in Forster, N.S.W. he’s been shaping boards for 4 years now under some of the Gold Coast’s most experienced shapers.

Ash has now taken an amazing oppurtunity to live out his lifelong dream to live, surf and shape from Indonesia. Before he left, Myles sat down to ask him a couple of quick questions about himself and what drives him.

 

Myles - How did you get into surfing & shaping?

Ash - My dad started taking me to the beach when I was super young and seeing how stoked he was on surfing made me want to explore it, after a little while the addiction kicked in and I was hooked!

I suppose after surfing so many different boards by so many great craftsmen, you start to think of how a board would turn out if you let your imagination run wild. For 5 or six years I was just experimentally shaping as a hobby then when I had a few consistent models I started to make them for friends.

Myles - What’s the best trip you’ve ever been on?

Ash - The best trip would be the Sahara Desert, we bought a van in Europe and drove it down to Africa crossing the north east coast line. We found some magical waves and experienced some great food and cultures. We were robbed, hassled and fined but we got to score some sweet salty moments!

Myles - What’s planned for the next 12 months?

Ashley - Just keep shaping and testing my boards, I love east coast roadies in Aus but I'd like to get to indo a few times with those nice reef break waves.

Big thanks to Ash Ward for taking the time to speak with us, we’re pumped to see where you’re going in future and look forward to keeping up with your adventures! Cheers legend.
