Living The Guethary Life

See this iconic Guethary thumbnail? It was shot exactly 20 years ago. I scanned the 35mm film just a few days ago. I’ve always wanted to live life near this iconic place, but we ended up living in Jeffreys Bay for nearly 7 years before we finally moved to the SW of France. We now call this corner of the world our home and while Guethary is a one hour drive away from where we live our dream life, it still gives me a buzz it’s only 100km away whenever I feel the need to experience the unique vibe that is Guethary. After the 5hour surf trip to this place of dreaming, I came home and spend one hour to make a quick one minute edit in Davinci Resolve 15. Color grading with a hint of Tetrachrome, to add some level of analog color to our beloved Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera.

“All For A Few Perfect Waves. The Audacious Life and Legend of Rebel Surfer Miki Dora” (Book by David Rensin) “Miki took to his grave many stories that no one will ever know, but this book will also tell many and give new insight into his life. In the end, only a select group knew the real person. I’m not sure I did-but almost.” (Kelly Slater)

The story I fail to put into words. A box with a glass window, documenting the beauty of living the French life. Trying to learn something new every day. Shooting with BMPCC, Hasselblad H2f & Nikon. Love Davinci Resolve 15 & Capture One Pro 11.1.
