William Aliotti

“You only tell the truth in the dark” is an inspirational short movie directed by Sebastien Zanella – Desillusion Magazine – illustrating a vision of surfing rarely seen, an ode to solitude, introspection and waves pursuit, miles away from the usual « sea, sex & surf » clichés.

With just a van, a few boards and a camera, William Aliotti and Sebastian Zanella embarked on a 3000km solo surf exploration road trip along the Chilean coastline, travelling across the dusty Atacama desert, ghost towns and fishermen villages from Santiago all the way to Arica.

The loneliness atmosphere expressed here is a romantic, pastoral attitude which inspires us to leave culture and technology behind, and to rediscover nature through surfing, an exploration beyond social conventions.

In his ultimate pursuit of luck, William entered The Arica Pro 2016 and found himself winning it in historical surf conditions, leaving South America with his first ever international contest win and $10,000 richer.
