No Directiøn

A video short edited and directed by Julian Martin. Filmed during our escapades throughout Central/Southern California and Mexico.




Hurricane Leslie, unlike some, did not leave thousands in despair. She didn’t expose FEMA of its wavering decrees. Hell, she didn’t even throw Jim Cantore into a state of titillation. One thing she did do, however, was evoke the leisurely inclinations of the Atlantic coast surfing masses. Of these masses, were Michael and Ben Powell. These cronies camped on the Outer Banks of North Carolina for the weeks worth of surf thanks to Leslie’s bovine nature.



Urban Promulgation

New York sustains 8 million people. At its heart, Manhattan, 1.6 million. It is the cultural hub of the world. In its vast complexities, surfing only bears a minute portion in the mores of its citizens. To expand this small portion, as to alter the perpetual path of surf culture, Michael Powell, PJ Raia and Ben Powell aim at being evangelists of surf through this featurette spotlighting the Big Apple.

Autumn Air

Autumn is in the air on the Outer Banks. Michael takes advantage of some crispy left air winds and tubes that the place has to offer.

After a brief stay in Australia, The Thomas Brothers stitched together a short edit of Ben surfing complete with subdued tones of the Australian countryside. Although the waves where small Down Under, the boys had a “hell time” surfing and perusing the lands.
