The Tempest

Featuring Stephanie Gilmore
Indonesia
30/09/2016

We are absolutely foaming on this clip of The Tempest with Stephanie Gilmore by the always talented crew at Monster Children for their feature magazine issue with Steph as their guest editor.
_ _ 

This visual entrée to Stephanie Gilmore's issue was directed by one of the most prolific in the surf film and photography game, Mr Jon Frank. We headed to the far reaches of the Indonesian archipelago in search of the perfect right to compliment Steph's surfing, and well, we found it. The accompanying track is performed by classically trained Italian pianist and composer Alberto Bof, a feature of an early 1900’s piece by Ravel, "Jeux d'eau,” with sound design by Venice based MKRS studio. Enjoy.

  1. Darwin and Tiwi Islands

    We explore the Northern Territory outback, the local Darwin food, bar and music scene and the nearby Tiwi Islands for a cultural hit and some infamous Barra fishing with the local indigenous guides.

  2. The Whitsundays travel guide

    "I''ve travelled around the world and the most beautiful place i have ever seen is in our backyard - the Whitsundays” - Emily Hutchinson @emelinaah
    We planned a fun 8-day Whitsunday holiday filled with reef diving, island hopping, water activities and plenty of time to relax. The trip kicked off with three days in Airlie Beach which was enough time to chat to the locals and get the inside story on the best things to do and explore in the Whitsundays. Every conversation pointed to two things: a one-day Cruise Whitsundays dive trip to the outer Great Barrier Reef and a sea plane flight over Heart Reef and Whitehaven Beach with Air Whitsunday. Then we spent four leisurely days on a #gobareboating catamaran exploring the 74 Whitsunday Islands. Thanks to our very own skipper (a local who knew just the right places), we stumbled across our own secret beaches, found hidden gems and watched the tropical Whitsunday world go by. Our trip ended with an overnight stay on glorious Hamilton Island - and a chance to mix water sports and hiking activities with chill outs by the resort pool and enjoy quality restaurant and cocktail time.
