“Thanks to Instagram and Tumblr, it’s clear that the true meaning of adventure is to lay in a cold tent at the top of a sacred mountain, sip single origin coffee from your vintage-replica camping cup and take #35mm photos of your every move. Waves or no waves, this is the new way to do trips right? Imagine going back to the pre-smart phone age for a second and channeling the vibes of an O.G surf trip. Keep it basic, dial in the swell, load the wagon and listen to some punk. Visit the bakery as often as possible, sleep in a weird motel, talk about babes and psych on your favourite surfers. Sometimes it’s nice to keep it real on #TheSearch.”
Starring the visitors from Central California, Noah Wegrich, Pat Curren, and Wilem Banks, while hosted by New Zealand regulars Johnny Hicks and Elliot Paerata-Reid.
