From filmmaker Luca Merli: “We were in San Diego recently to shoot the shaping of Alessandro Ponzanelli’s new board. It was shaped by Matt Calvani for an upcoming webisode for Onde Nostre. While visiting Santa Barbara, we met up with Oliver Parker. He lent Ale’ his old Bing from the 60’s to try. It was amazing.”
“That’s Rob Kulisek on one of his first trips up from the big city to the coast of Maine. He timed it perfectly with an early March winter storm and 2 days of groomed 3–4′ snowy swell. The hard part… rubbing frozen wax on a cold board with lobster claws on.” – Nick LaVecchia. To see more of Nick LaVecchia’s amazing work click here.
