...And you’re no longer sitting around waiting for something to happen. You’re out there, going to the moments.
After a few days, life on the road starts to feel like a dream: sunrise, sunset, and the moments in-between, all finally yours again it seems. Laying on a hot, white beach, watching the giant clouds drift by - it all finally slows down, down, down.
Home is where the heart is. And like a compass, our heart’s true north is the sea.
So wake up, tune out, dive in, and feel it like the first time…
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.
