Soli Bailey Gets the Maassen Treatment


Morgan Maassen’s kept the pace up during pandemic, releasing a slew of short films profiling some of surfing’s finest in all the places we’re itching to go.

Released today, Morgan’s newest film features surfer Soli Bailey chasing waves in Aus, India, South Africa, Hawaii, and everywhere in between. ‘This past year I was bestowed both the pleasure of travelling with him to Indonesia to score perfect waves, and to watch his inaugural year competing on the tour,’ said Maassen. ‘The highs of his performances in incredible surf, and lows of watching him struggle with the complexities—and literal luck—that comes with being a professional surfer was nothing short of amazing. As I release this film, I cannot express how proud I am of this human’s fruition into a young adult who surfs with incredible talent and carries the flag for Indigenous Australians with dignity.’

Hit play on Morgan’s new flick (with additional filming from Blake Myers and Shane Fletcher) on the talented Soli above.
