Award winning film ‘The Hunt for Hipmasama’ released online- The long awaited online release of the unique award winning surf film, ‘The Hunt for Hipmasama’, has arrived. From today the film will be available online free of charge thanks to film sponsors Oakley, C Skins, Dry Robe and Fourth Surfboards. The 35 minute film is a culmination of 8 years of surfing and exploring the cold islands surrounding the UK for a mysterious wave that surfer Oli Adams first spotted online. Armed with only the online pseudo name of the person who posted the photo Oli set out on the epic journey to find the wave and the elusive ‘Hipmasama’. What Oli discovers and the un-surfed waves he finds along the way, is truly inspiring. The footage was filmed mostly by friends or by Oli himself on his GoPro and was edited entirely by Oli , who taught himself the editing process along the way, which gives the film a raw, real, quality. ‘The Hunt for Hipmasama’ recently won the ‘Best British Surf Film’ award at the prestigious London Surf Film Festival and also was selected to feature in the ‘Kendal Mountain Festival’. Oli Adams … “I am so happy to finally be able to release my film. It has been a long time coming, I have learnt so much along the way and I just hope that people watching enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the journey”
Here is an edit featuring some of best 16 and under surfers in the country from a media weekend that we had at the Oli Adams Elite Surf Academy. I have to say the groms were ripping and i'm pretty impressed that they managed to get these clips in only a couple of sessions.
Starring: Stanley Norman, Aiden Hopkins, Jo Morris, Jordan Zervas, Noah Capps, Seth Morris, Luca Carlise and Liam Murray Strout
A few weeks back I did some testing for Cskins wetsuits in a Climatic Wind Tunnel. It was a really amazing day and being able to test the suits was really interesting. Check it out here and share if possible :)
I'm really happy to announce to the birth of my Elite Surf Academy in association with Carve magazine, Fourth Surfboards, Vitacoco and Surfing GB. I'll be working with the top junior surfers in the UK one weekend a month along with Sport scientist Ed Corkhill.
Our first weekend is 31st/1st June with Roger Sharp taking pictures for Carve mag and we already have British and English age group champions like Angus Scotney and Liam Murray Strout signed up. Fourth surfboards will be giving a brand new custom weapon to the most improved surfer at the end of the year. The UK has some real talent coming through at the moment and I'm really excited to share some of my experience to help them on their path to turn Pro.For further info please get in touch :)
