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.

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.

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!

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:

osmo thrombo veeco surf film 05

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!

A Whole Heap Of 'Head Noise' In Sydney
We held a secret screening at the Steyne in Manly Friday night for Noa's latest flick, 'Head Noise'. Noa and Mikey Mallalieu (the man behind the lens) have been working on the edit since Noa packed that heavily rumoured bomb at Backdoor during the shootout back in January. "It all came together really quick, started off in Hawaii and we only got back from Bali [the final trip for the film] two weeks ago." Mikey told Stab the morning of the prem. "Some of these sessions Noa was surfing up to 8 hours a day, he won't stop until it's done." It's 14-ish minutes long and Noa modestly agreed "it's the best [he's] put out" post-premiere. Noa's overtly conscious of the edits he releases as well, ensuring that his latest output surpasses, or at the very last, matches his previous edit. And you can be sure that 'Head Noise' surpasses 'Pulp' in more than just running length. "Noa has a lot of input into the editing process, he knows what he wants from the waves included, up to the soundtrack." Mikey continued. "It was initially intended to be longer – with interviews and profiles included – but the film turned out better this way." It starts on the North Shore, and ends off with footage compiled over two separate trips to West Aus. I won't throw any spoilers in there at the moment, but for those too eager to wait until it's online release August 2nd, there's a string of US dates in the next couple of weeks. I'd fill in the gaps surrounding the above images, but they're better left unadorned and unexplained, and the moments which weren't captured on film are probably better left residing in the back of our minds than out in public anyway. All I will say is the only negative was the exuberant cost of an Uber back over that bridge... And for Noa and Mikey, a 7am flight from Sydney back to the Gold Coast. For those of you over the pond in the U.S. of A, the film's worldwide premiere is happening on July 12th in LA, followed by a stint of other West and East coast tour dates – which you can scan below. West Coast July 12 - Los Angeles: Zebulon Cafe July 13 - San Diego: South Coast Surf Shop July 15 - Costa Mesa: Volcom HQ East Coast July 24 - Asbury Park, New Jersey: Asbury Lanes July 25 - Long Island, New York: Unsound Surf Shop July 26 - New York City: TBD July 27 - Newport, Rhode Island: TBD July 28 - New Hampshire: 3S Artspace Words by JAKE EMBREY - Stab Magazine Photos by @kanegrosvenorphoto Check out the Volcom x Noa Deane collection HERE » Watch the official trailer HERE »

Noa Deane's "Head Noise" is a Cinematic Surf Movie from Filmmaker Mikey Mallalieu
Release date: August 2 Demystifying the noise within his own head and destroying the noise of the stereotype which surrounds him. Yes, Noa Deane is a freakish aerialist, but he also charges tubes of consequence. Yes, he is one of the most innovative surfers in the world today, but he is also steeped in a deep respect for his heritage. Yes, he has been characterized as a punk kid, but he is thoughtful and down to earth. Yes, his life might look like an easy dream ride, but he has demons to slay! This movie is a direct reflection of Noa Deane. It's a candid look at one of surfing's most exciting characters through high-action, heavy-charging, avant-garde surfing for the new age, documented unmistakably through the lens of filmmaker Mikey Mallalieu.

"Relentless" Surf Movie Starring Dusty Payne Follows the Highs + Lows of His Professional Surfing Career
On January 8, 2018, Dusty Payne suffered a near-fatal wipeout at Backdoor on the North Shore of Oahu. After hitting the reef, Dusty was knocked unconscious and didn’t surface for five waves. After being hospitalized with a broken jaw and multiple skull fractures, Dusty underwent surgery and spent months recovering. This captivating film documents Dusty’s surfing accident and his road to recovery and spotlights his career of highs and lows and his relentless love for the sport of surfing.   "I just hope that I’m able to inspire other people to not give up on their goals because of a setback, no matter how dark times may seem."   ABOUT RELENTLESS: Dusty Payne is one of the most dynamic surfers of his generation, but his path in the world of professional surfing has been far from easy. His career has been a roller coaster of competitive successes and failures, era-defining video parts, heartbreaking injuries and inspiring comebacks. Set against the backdrop of his near-fatal wipeout at Backdoor in January 2018, including high-action surfing footage from places like Portugal, Oahu, and Maui (including Honolua Bay), Relentless tells the story of a surfer who has been through it all and keeps coming back stronger than ever.

VOLCOM ZIP TECH® JACKET-TO-PANT SYSTEM KEEPS SNOW OUT
CONNECT FROM THE LEFT, ZIP TO THE RIGHT, COVER & SHRED! It's no secret, being cold and wet is the easiest way to ruin a good day on the hill. And let's face it, everyone falls down, slides out, sits on an icy/wet chairlift and so on. It is snowboarding after all, and snow is going to try to find a way up your jacket and down your pants, soaking your base layers making it difficult to regulate your body temperature and in general cause you discomfort. Which is why over a decade ago the design team at Volcom developed the innovative Zip Tech® "zip your jacket to your pants" system for Volcom Outerwear as the first line of defence in keeping your body dry and your stoke high. Volcom Outerwear Zip Tech®   Inside and around the bottom of Volcom Outerwear Zip Tech® jackets is an inner powder skirt with a zipper running around the skirt that connects to a corresponding zipper track that sits just below the belt line of Volcom Outerwear Zip Tech® pants. Once connected, this hidden interface is the best barrier against snow finding its way into your outerwear. No other method of attaching a powder skirt or waist gator to your pants, be it through use of a series of buttons and clips, is as impenetrable to snow or offers the freedom of easy layering underneath as the patented Volcom Zip Tech® system does. Cross compatible between Volcom Outerwear jacket and pants styles as long as both feature Zip Tech®, the system also works across sizes, so that a small Zip Tech® jacket will work with a large Zip Tech® pant.
