Luiza Campos Surfs Malibu in The Golden State Series

The Golden State Series: Malibu from L/F productions on Vimeo.

 

Brazilian-born surfer, Luiza Campos, is one of our favorite photographers and while checking out some of her work online, we stumbled upon a surf session of hers in Malibu, California. This short film is part of Luiza and her husband, Stephan Figueiredo’s Golden State Series and touches on what most of us know we’ll be facing when we surf the iconic point break—-fun, peeling waves but out-of-this-world crowds.

 

Film Description
Continuing our ‘The Golden State Series’, we capture Luiza Campos during a sunny California afternoon riding the wave that gave birth to surfing on the west coast – Malibu.
This wave has it’s bittersweet moments. Flawless in every way, yet unbearably crowded. You can spend hours out there before you catch a one, and most likely you will be sharing it with five other people you have never seen before. But, there is always that one ride that makes it worth the effort.
As the world continues to get smaller and more people continue to flood to the same places, it’s hard not to let your mind wander to somewhere far away, where maybe there is another undiscovered Malibu with no one around.
Within the chaos and with much patience, Luiza finds her space amongst a sea full of strangers.

While there has been much written about the “Brazilian Storm” in men’s surfing, women’s surfing in South America has flown a bit under the radar. We’ve often covered Silvana Lima and Sofia Mulanovich on JettyGirl over the years, but there are many other amazing surfers from the continent who haven’t been written about in North America’s surf publications. We’re setting out to change that. We won’t be able to cover everyone, but slowly but surely we will do our best to make known some surfers you may not have seen before. Case in point is Gilvanilta Ferreira, a surfer we hadn’t heard of before we saw some clips on her Instagram a few months back. With sick style and a solid bag of tricks, this will surely not be the last you hear about Gil’s surfing. We cant wait to see how much further she takes her airs into the future.
“I used to sell coconuts at the beach with my family. Since then I always watched the boys surfing, but I didn’t have a board. Instead, I used the cooler lids of the coconuts for surfing, but my mom was mad at me because I used to break all of them. Since those days, I just fell in love with surfing.”
Film Description
Apaixonada pelo surfe desde que usava a tampa da caixa de isopor em que sua família vendia coco para surfar, Gilvanilta Ferreira é uma das poucas mulheres que pode se orgulhar em carregar o status de aerialista.
Potiguar “rata de praia”, ela se sente à vontade para praticar as decolagens no quintal de casa, Ponta Negra (Natal, RN).
