Paddle, Wipeout, Paddle, Wipeout again, Paddle, Stand Up, Surf and Smile. Yep! Im on a surf trip in Bali.this is my first ever trip that Im really trying to put all my efforts to learn more about surfing. With the help from SURF WG camp Im starting to realize that it is paying off.It has been a long time since I have learned so much in such a short amount of time. I think I need to start doing this more!
My season in northern hemisphere is pretty much done and although we are still going to riksgransen end of may I decided that It was time to go reload some batteries after long season.Last night I flew into Hong Kong for a day. Tomorrow together with my girlfriend we are going to Bali for 2 weeks. well deserved vacation indeed. view from Kowloon Pier,Hong Kong
Pablo crew brought the big filming gear to the big mountains where getting to the spots is hard and means commitment. this RED camera is over 9KG and with all the other filming gear with him filmer Kim Koponen did awesome job making it to the peaks to film epic stuff photo: Teemu Lahtinen
We played it as ecological as possible.even thought I was cruising with my Hilux we did not use helicopters for aerial shots. But we did have guys from Skypixel shooting for us with their mini helicopter. I think the shots look better than from the normal heli because you can fly so close to your target with it. photo: Teemu Lahtinen
Finnish freeride legend Jarkko Henttonen was helping the film crew with camera gear. Jarkko also gave good local knowledge for the crew.Jarkko also has a great skills of sleeping while waiting the crew getting the filming done. photo: Teemu Lahtinen
