Luiza Campos, Malibu - Golden State Series by LF Productions

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).

Description
Although competitive surfing has its place, it’s still a blast to see the best Tour surfers ditch their jerseys and thrusters and experiment a little. Case in point is this just under two minute Dimity Stoyle edit. I can’t get enough of the smooth lines she draws on a short single fin. In Dimity’s own words… “This is a new model single fin I helped design with MS Surfboards and it’s the best Summer board EVER!!!!”

16 year old Gold Coast surfer, Holly-Daze Coffey, threads some clean barrels, lays down some solid rail work, and as the title indicates, punts and lands some impressive air-reverses. The young Australian is surely one to watch as women surfers continue to push the boundaries of performance surfing.

Single Wave Thursday featuring Kassia Meador on Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine

Kassia Meador – Single Wave Thursday. One Ride, No Music, Just Surfing.


One thing I’ve noticed about many of my favorite surfers is how they can jump on just about any type of equipment and skillfully ride waves without missing a beat. Longboard stylist, Kassia Meador, is one of those multi-faceted surfers who can surf anything from a high-performance thruster, to a retro-styled twin fin, to a traditional single fin log. I’m not sure if she still rides them, but a number of years back, Kassia began riding a thin, finless, wooden board known as an Alaia.


If you’ve ever seen someone surf an Alaia, you’ll quickly realize that it is a completely different way to ride waves. I’ve seen many people give it a go, only to return to the sand deflated that they either couldn’t catch a wave or the ones they did catch resulted in wipeout after wipeout. For those who push through the initial challenges, however, the reward is a feeling of unadulterated speed, glide, slide, and freedom. On this particular wave in Encinitas a few years back, Kassia Meador glides into a fun, lined-up, glassy left. It’s really fun to watch the nuances that come into play on finless boards—case in point, the subtle drifting Kassia employs as she heads into her 360-degree spin. Landing a floater on an Alaia is no easy task, but Kassia effortlessly pulls one off to finish her ride.

Holly Beck has so many of the qualities I look up to in another human being. She’s intelligent, resourceful, organized, goal-oriented and so much more …all wrapped up in a truly down-to-earth and fun-loving personality. On this day in 2009 she took out a new Rusty “Dwart” surfboard and in a crew of some of the top surfers in the world, literally blew the roof off the session as seen in this lightning-fast whip off the section.

One of my favorite Jettygirl days was the one I spent with surfer/shaper/musician, Ashley Lloyd Thompson, at her home in Santa Cruz, California. Watching the ultra-smooth surfing styles of Ashley and her husband, Alex, was a refreshing change of pace. If filming the two of them drawing clean lines in the water wasn’t reward enough, I was blessed even more with a home-grown salad and an impromptu live music performance after the session. It was an epic day through and through!
