Relatable Form. 10-minute short ft. Ryan Lovelace and friends

getting their share of some Mentawai reefs, local culture, boat building & shaping analogies.

A nice balance of insights by Mr.Lovelace, dope cinematography and some really decent surfing featuring multiple forms of barrelkind. And hey, all that within the 10-minute mark means kudos.

Our favorite quote:

“shaping is the art of surfing” - Mentawai local

In the words of Ryan Lovelace:

“ A handful of friends and I took to the Indian Ocean for what became a surreal learning experience. Perspective gained through removal from society, friendships made; unique but so akin. Fundamentals of life shared throughout time and space - Life appreciated. A study of hand made craft with water and nature between friends and other craftsman from across the globe.”
