TEAM AVERAGE 3.0 FILM
For this year’s Team Average adventure we put Stephanie Gilmore, Andrew Allen, Craig Anderson, Dion Agius and Dylan Rieder on a plane and sent them to the island country of Sri Lanka. There they surfed and skated and rode through the verdant hills in a bus helmed by a lunatic.
Behind the shot: Andrew Allen – Bulls on parade
We’d spent the afternoon boozing at Whisky Point. A surf break more famed for its right hander, but the waves had gone to absolute shit. On the plus side, beverages were rapidly flowing at this weird little beach bar which was pumping out Rastafarian electro.
MOVING UNITS: ETNIES IN MEXICO
I’m realizing this trip began over the idea of going cliff jumping and sparking a giant fire on the beach to get some cool photos. Randomly a few weeks later, I am on a plane to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with Etnies team riders Ryan Sheckler, David Reyes, Aidan Campbell and Julian Davidson.
Gonz gets into trouble with the French authorities and the usual suspects do their thing. Rieder, Dill, Herman etc. Enjoy.
