"De Passage" directed by celebrated film maker, Russell Brownley
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 10 June, 2014 - Reef announces the digital release for “De Passage,” the globe-spanning film project shot in Tahiti, Bali, Australia and South Africa. “De Passage” will be available for free viewing worldwide on June 15, 2014 at reef.com/depassage.
“De Passage” is a film inspired by Reef’s philosophy of “Just Passing Through,” a 20-minute short about traveling surfers’ surreal life on the road starring Reef Ambassadors Alana Blanchard, Mick Fanning, Luke Davis, Tia Blanco, Rob Machado, Kai Otton, Shane Dorian, Mikala Jones, Taylor Knox, Paige Maddison, and Nick Rozsa.
Directed by celebrated film maker, Russell Brownley (“Cancer to Capricorn,” “Gum for My Boat”) and Reef’s Global Creative Director, Mark Tesi, this film speaks to the idea of no longer sitting around and waiting for something to happen, but getting on the road and making those moments happen.
“Reef has so many amazing ambassadors. We wanted to slow things down a bit and take a look at them and their travels with fresh eyes,” says Reef’s Creative Director, Mark Tesi, “The trips that we did for the film felt like real surf missions. There were eight of us sleeping in a room. It was more of a genuine travel experience.”
