Better than Mick's Snake? A Snapper minus the thugs? A Rincon minus the logs?
All these mysterious sandbottom rights! In the latest look-at-this-empty-right film, we find the Portuguese filmmaker filmmaker Diogo d’Orey and his surfer Antonio Silva carving a path to what, I suppose, is another African right point.
Empty and gorgeous as hell, even if the rip “is like a river.”
“The feeling we got was like ecstasy,” says Diogo d’Orey. “We human beings like the comfort zone. There are few people who are willing to explore, to spend money. I love doing that. I love going up the point and seeing if there’s a wave behind there. I love getting out of the madness, the popular places, the touristic places in the search for solitude.”
Not that Diogo’s claiming discovery.
“We were lucky. We had friends, we had connections who…pointed… us that way.”
A forty-second tube midway through the film speaks volumes for the power of networking.
