WELCOME TO THE BEATING HEART OF YOUR ADDICTION
WE ARE THE SPIT
THE TRADE WINDS
THE HOWLING GALE
WE ARE BACKWASH
The friction free fiends have been gathering momentum in their quest for finless finesse. Jordan Rodin is just one such young lad plying his trade with style, at times, reminiscent of the greats. Split second moments of board positioning only achievable by a lack of traction, linked together by flowing lines. Pierre David and Douglas Guillot use similar lines to link together a beautiful piece celebrating the intricacies of another avenue of the wave riding art.
From the guys behind the piece:
Into Bliss is a short inception into the mind of Jordan Rodin and an ode to the notion of free friction surfing.
Far away from the competitive and commercial nature of surfing, and heavily inspired by Finless surfer Derek Hynd, Jordan embraces a free roaming approach, rekindling the emotions of why he fell in love with surfing in the first place. For the fun of it. No rules, No Constraints.
Into Bliss is an insight to the joys of free friction surfing and the sensations embraced by Jordan Rodin for his love of the ocean.
Backwash Issue Two is a surf anthology featuring Japan, the photography of Chris Burkard and Sergio Villalba, Hamish Laing and Woody Gooch. Kalani Lattanzi swims at Nazare, whilst Amy Kotch surfs barrels whilst pregnant and John Peck knee paddles out as he has done since 1958.Purchase
