“This movie took for fucking ever. At least it felt like for fucking ever. It was really only two years, and to be honest it was probably the best two years of my life. A few really goddamn cold as fuck places but aside from that it was great. Even they were great. Everything was actually great and I loved every second of getting to work on this film.” – Dion Agius
Globe‘s new surf and adventure film, Strange Rumblings in Shangri La, is a stunning cinematic exploration of the world and it’s waves. Shot in 16mm film with a nod of recognition in Jacques Cousteau’s direction, Strange Rumblings is so much more than a surf movie. It’s a journey, and now the journey is available on itunes for you to watch in the comfort of your own sad, sorry little home that is nowhere near Iceland or any of the other epic locations they ventured to along the way.
We asked Dion a few quick questions about his travels while filming Strange Rumblings. He gave us funny answers in words and amazing answers in photos.
Best spot you surfed on your strange travels?
We surfed a beach in Iceland where a glacier breaks out into the ocean and you are surfing amongst icebergs. That was by far the craziest shit I’ve ever done.
Weirdest meal you ate?
Whale and puffin in Iceland. Not really. But I watched a girl eat it.
Funniest person you met along the way?
Dustin, one of the cinematographers in Iceland. Incredibly talented and absolutely hilarious. In a good weird way.
Worst night’s sleep you had?
In a bunk bed in a room with 6 guys at a bed and breakfast in Iceland that was overheated and full of smelly men farting.
Spot you can’t wait to visit again?
Iceland. But not the smelly fart room, but the rest of it. Reykjavik is one of the coolest cities I’ve ever seen.
