De Passage, a new twenty-three minute surf piece from reef, has been shot with the aesthetic stylings of a Wes Anderson film. From the yellow title lettering to the framed portraits the film looks like the something from the cutting room floor of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. If your a fan of Mr. Anderson or just cool surf films you should take a look at this nice little piece.

“Our journey begins in the Island nation of French Polynesia: “De Passage” is the French translation of Just Passing Through. After our exploration of the tropical wonderland that is Tahiti with our crew of Rob Machado, Alana Blanchard, Shane Dorian, Kai Otton, Nick Rozsa, Cyrus Sutton, Luke Davis, Tia Blanco and Paige Maddison, we set sails and and head west to the enchanted islands of Bali where we find Mikala Jones deep in uncharted territory. From there it’s a short trip to the land down under to meet 3x world champion Mick Fanning on his home turf. We plot our final course west again to the frigid right points of South Africa with Taylor Knox and friends.” – reef
