Osmo Thrombo - The Lo-Fi B-Movie Of Hi-Fi Shredding

THE REAL JOURNEY OF AN UNREAL SURF FLICK, OSMO THROMBO.

Words by Tom Carey

Sometimes plans are meant to be changed. We set out to document a surf trip in Australia and ended up in Indonesia. Nate Leal (videographer) and I (still photographer) flew from California to Sydney ready to jump on another flight to Brisbane to meet up with surfers Ozzie Wright, Noa Deane, and Mitch Coleborn, along with Mikey Mallalieu (Aussie videographer). However, during the long trans Pacific flight, the forecast and weather turned grim to say the least. So, in the Sydney airport, we lined up last minute flights, accommodations, and transfers for all of us to one of Indo’s mysto, less frequented islands.

The swell forecast was better than what Australia had in mind for us, and sometimes you just need to get surfers out of their comfort zone and on the road.

Mitch, Ozzie and Noa travel zonked at the ferry boarding station.

You never know who you’re gonna meet while waiting for your boat to come in…

..And you never know who you’ll be invited to hang with once out to sea.

Locals enjoying us tourists aboard.

The locals enjoyed our company and had some good laughs.

Indo is a far trek for anyone coming from Cali, but once you tack on another flight, and a three-hour van ride, followed by a two-hour ferry ride, and a final thirty minutes by car, you’re talking about a hefty journey. So, you pray the waves are worth it.

No shortage of post card views along the way.

Village life.

Finding beach shade was key to survival on our destination island. (Noa is seen here in the Mag Vibes Stoneys Boardshorts.)

The big goon himself, Ozzie Wright, marks trails and takes his own shade with him everywhere he goes.

Ozzie and the best way to shower off days of travel grime.

Apparently, all the plane flights to get there wasn’t enough air time for Mitch.

Post-surf refueling. All I can say is that these were no ordinary coconuts...

osmo thrombo veeco surf film 03

...Just ask Ozzie.

The next few days were a back-and-forth mission between the left, and a right-hander situated in a massive bay with the most picturesque views framing the photos. The boys assaulted the right’s chunky sections.

The maxed out conditions at the right made for some tricky situations, but when you found a good one, the ramps were massive!

ozzie wright noa deane mitch coleborn journey to south east asia image 06

Mitch’s backhand is second to none, as seen here.

After blowing out a fin box, Noa still managed to nail a few more airs there. But, the right just didn’t produce enough to make it into the film we were there to shoot. As fickle as it was, the left became our bread and butter. We were chipping away at our trip. We were working hard when struck by challenges such as our van bottoming out in a mean little ditch on a rutted, dirt road, and playing hard to compile an epic batch of clips.

Ozzie, Mitch and Noa at the Tropical Beach Alien Communication Centre. Ozzie tuned in.

We were happy, but we still hadn’t scored that one all-time perfect day that you travel deep into the outer reaches for. It left us hungry for more.

We woke up the last full day of the trip to a much bigger swell. The tide was in our favor and the winds were light enough for us to check out a fabled heavy tube that sits a boat ride away from the shore of a deep, cliff-lined bay. At low tide it’s ultra shallow. You need to knife your take-off directly into the barrel or you can plan on scrapping yourself off the reef. Sure enough, we rolled up to the shore and saw low-tide kegs freight training out in the distance of the bay.

We rented an indo canoe powered by a five-horse-power-converted weed whacker outboard.

We excitedly jumped in the boat for the ride to the line-up. At first, from this closer vantage point, it looked as if the tide was actually too low. Suddenly, a few crazy waves pulsed in that got the boys out there immediately. But, once in the water, we found ourselves settling for less. Although fun, nothing rolled in for a while as sick as what we previously saw. To make matters worse, a crazy rain squall moved in and unleashed on us. It was raining so hard that the boat was filling up with water. Then, after about 20 minutes of nonstop, torrential downpour, it was as if some higher power came down and said, “Hey, let me help you out here,” and the rain stopped like the flip of a switch. A light offshore wind kicked in, and the waves started pumping. As if a spell was cast, the conditions went from average to absolutely going off. It was unworldly.

Ozzie’s wave-count doubled everyone else's on the trip. He’s all smiles here after getting barreled for 50 yards across the shallow reef.

After the rain squall, the wave became a full-fledge photo studio.

Mitch just inches away from my camera. The power of a fisheye lens.

We substituted the sun for offshore winds. Ozzie approved.

A few gems came in before the squall. Noa found the best one.

Mitch mid-pump on a little screamer.

We traded off long waves of multi-section pits for six hours straight that day. It was the all-time session we were hoping for. We watched the footage that night, pinching ourselves and sharing the stoke of each other’s waves. Celebratory madness ensued, joking “rite of passage” haircuts went down:

Mitch got the first cut and rocked it the rest of the trip.

The next morning we woke up to onshore slop. The ocean was done and so were we. It was time to go home. Journey complete.

Hours of footage and tons of stories. What was next to do? Ryan Thomas to tweak all the footage into what would become OSMO THROMBO… The lo-fi, cult, surf action, adventure, dramatic, sci-fi, fantasy, bro-mantic, comedy, feel good, B-movie of outer limits, hi-fi shredding and interstellar tube time, that quickly unravels into the most bizarre experience of our lives… and ultimately a mission to rescue Mitch.

Three of them was a handful. I couldn’t imagine keeping track of nine. Until next time!

"ALIENS WAS HERE" FT. NOA DEANE, OZZIE WRIGHT, BALARAM STACK, MITCH COLEBORN, RYAN BURCH
ALIENS WAS HERE IS A VEECO PRODUCTION STARRING THE ELITE VOLCOM SURF TEAM. WE SETTLED IN BALI FOR FIVE WEEKS AND THE BOYS ENCOUNTERED MORE THAN JUST ALIENS! This is a true story based around the Volcom surf team's exploration to Indonesia. We rented a house in Bali, Indonesia and invited every team rider from all over the globe. The plan? Well, there was no plan. We settled in a luxurious villa in Canngu for five weeks and the boys encountered more than they bargained for. From our top lords scoring a secret slab to our alienated youth shifting heads, this film will leave you with a fine dosage of yet another Volcom classic! STARRING: Ozzie Wrong Noa Deane Mitch Coleborn Balaram Stack Ryan Burch Andrew Doheny Nate Tyler FEATURING: Nate Tyler, Mauro Diaz, Pat Schmidt, Miguel Tudela, Leon Glatzer, Gony Zubizarreta, Harry Timson, William Aliotti, Guy Sato, Shun Murakami, Muklis Anwar, Hayden Rodgers, Nolan Rodgers, Hagan Johnson, Cole Sandman, Santiago Hart, Kobi Clements, Jarvis Earle, Keanu Taylor DIRECTED by Jimmy "Jazz" James PRODUCED by Richie Olivares, Tom Carey, Brad Dougherty, Matt Bemrose  FILMED by Jimmy "Jazz" James, Nate Leal, Scott Stinnett, Matt Tromberg, Tom Carey ART by Ozzie Wright A HAZY RECOLLECTION OF STRANGE ENCOUNTERS DOCUMENTED BY RICHIE OLIVARES: Ozzie was on a painting craze in Bali. He was tagging "Aliens Was Here" all over town. He even painted his face for each surf and I think it scared everyone off in the line up, which resulted in heaps of waves! Ozzie Wrong transforming Uluwatu's racetrack into Planet Zorb. RICHIE OLIVARES: "Believe it or not, but this car was a rental! I think it gave us good luck and it became a wave magnet. We had to pay for the car to be repainted when we gave it back, but it was totally worth it. Many would say that it upped the value of the car." OBLIVION STONEYS BOARDSHORTS - GET YOURS HERE Spotted the first extraterrestrial of the trip. "It was the first time I'd ever seen an elephant in person and it was insane. The Zoo keeper loved rock n' roll!" -Mauro Mauro Diaz MACAW MOD BOARDSHORTS ANDREW DOHENY: "I never thought I'd ever get that close to an elephant! It was like a CGI or something." Andrew "Droid" Doheny with a quick cutty, feeling loose like he's back home surfing 5-4. William Aliotti is a sneaky little Frenchman who loves to get barreled and have a good time. He spent two months in Bali this year and by the looks of that smile you can tell he had an excellent time! Frenchman William Aliotti joined the rest of the aliens and scored big time. MAG VIBES STONEYS BOARDSHORTS GONY ZUBIZARRETA: "I forgot my travel bag in Lisbon airport at the x-ray machine just before flying to Bali, so I had to borrow shorts and shirts from William, Leon and Miguel (thanks boyz). We had to divide the group and the goofy footers went to Java, so we went to Yoyo's! I really enjoyed the trip to Sumbawa with Droid, Mauro and Pat. The guys were ripping! It was impressive to see the talent and clean surfing of Mauro, the crazy different approach of Droid on every wave riding weird boards, and the power and pop of Pat, especially on his twin fin." "BASICALLY, WE JUST SURFED OUR BRAINS OUT FOR A WEEK AND THEN HAD A LITTLE GOODBYE PARTY IN CANGGU TO FINISH THE TRIP THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE." -GONY Gony Zubizarreta dropped a couple wallets, but was able to pick them up shortly after. The little car that could. Ozzie face-painted the entire trip. Every night consisted of listening to Distractor over and over, Bintangs, and art tutorial with Ozzie. It was like a big kid sleepover! NO VACANCY STONEYS BOARDSHORTS Nate Leal's nickname is Snake Eal and this photo should further explain how he landed a nickname like that. It’s the only way to drink your morning mud - with your mug on your mug. Mitch Coleborn, evening light in Indonesia. WE WENT FROM SHARING SLEEPING PADS IN A DIRTY SMALL VILLA TO A 5 STAR RESORT WITH SERVANTS ALL AROUND US, IT WAS WILD! You would think this baby broke down frequent, but I swear this was the only time we had to push her! This car was a beast! Ryan Burch on a self-shaped, unidentified surfboard. "IT WAS AWESOME TO BE ON A TRIP WITH A COUPLE OF GUYS THAT I'VE GROWN UP WATCHING IN OLD VOLCOM VIDEOS. WE SCORED SO FUCKING HARD, I COULDN'T BELIEVE HOW BARRELED EVERYONE GOT!" -BALARAM   We had a solid group of our top groms crash our Aliens party and they were tripping! From the Hayden brothers to Cole Sandman to Keanu Taylor, each grom was upping the ante every day which produced a solid mix of oustanding surfing from the youngsters. Take a sneak peek below:

LONGO, HAAKONSEN AND FRIENDS IN OLIVIER GITTLER’S INTROSPECTION
OLIVIER IS A MAN OF MANY TALENTS. AT RIDING HIS SNOWBOARD, FILMING, EDITING, MAKING MUSIC, OR CELEBRATING LIFE, HE CONSTANTLY EXCELS. Oh, Oli's also the reigning Quarter Pipe World Champion, although he'll never admit to it. It’s no secret that a 30-second Instagram clip is usually a condensed version of a week-long trip around the world to document a specific goal. Whether it's a trick for a video part, a photo for the mags, field testing product, or any other reason to chase a winter storm. But, what about all the shenanigans in between? From airplanes to rental cars, hotel rooms to summits, and everything in between, sometimes the moments that define these trips are caught in-between takes. Volcom ambassador Olivier Gittler, with his strong appreciation for behind-the-scenes footage, put together this unique look at a season untold with Arthur Longo, Terje Haakonsen and friends.  "IT’S WHAT WE LOVE TO DO. ALL THE THINGS THAT HAPPEN WHEN WE TRAVEL FOR SNOWBOARDING. THE SPONTANEOUS PART OF TRAVELING AROUND THAT NO ONE ELSE SEES." – OLIVIER GITTLER Oli double exposure photo by Adailton Oli Mike and Jeff shot by Vernon Deck Oli Mike and Jeff shot by Vernon Deck music recording setup iphone Oli and Arthur iphone Oli close up shot by Arthur Oli forest iphone Oli Mt Blanc iphone Oli photo by Adailton Oli setup iphone Oli shot by Longo - Crater Lake Super 8 Paulina Lake iphone
