The Joskes seem to have salt flowing through their veins. Paul and Jenny started Valla Surfboards as a way to facilitate Paul’s need to surf; and built a career of creating custom boards with a focus on the traditional roots of surfing. A film by Mark Tipple.
Desillusion Magazine teamed up with Benjamin JeanJean, a French artist who’s into just about everything and who is surrounded by an extremely dreamlike and mystical world. This association gave way to the creation of a highly atypical surfboard. The board was shown at an exhibition last month in Biarritz, France.

“Was up at Lowers and happen to see Alex surfing and I figured I would shoot a few clips of him surfing. I ended up making an edit out of it and here it is. I wanted to do something really weird so I added some 16mm painted film effect to the whole thing. Some will like it but some will not like it at all. I hope you are the one (who will) enjoy it!” – from filmmaker Gage Hingeley
