Created by Vaughan Blakey, Ozzie Wrong & Nanda Ormond for the Creative Destruction series.
I’ve been dwelling on a project, and it feels like the time is right… CAST YOUR OWN SHADOW is a simple yet aesthetic based project that will tell the stories of creative crew. The ones that teachers said would amount to nothing… “You don’t think drawing pictures will become a career now do you Johnny?!”… It’s about the people who stepped aside from the pack, and as the title suggests; Cast their own shadow.
Lee Brennan will launch the project. Here is a glimpse at what Lee does, and who he is // check his work and collabs with @valleyeyewear // @leebrennandesign.
We are looking for sponsorship for this project. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if it interests you or your business.
The RV store may be out of Boardshorts, but our tees, singlets, LS tees, hoods and walk shorts are ready for the swoop!
Hit the brown box to your right to head to the RV STORE —->
We are always supporting the little guys of this town, trade-offs and mates rates keep this town flowing. Support the little guys, and support your home town. Buy Local!
Big thanks to all the crew that have modelled for us recently, getting paid in clothes isn’t always ideal but it’s appreciated and will not be forgotten. But it’s this kid, Matisse, that is ruling for the RV brand at the moment.
Rest in Peace to our brother Ryan Watson.
Back in the day Vards and myself battled it out for Ryza’s best old John Harris Crafts’. 2 kids from either side of town, with only the board rack in the middle of town at Gary Westaway’s, Surf World.
In his own way Ryza bridged the gap in our town and had a hell of a time all the time. Miss ya freckles.
I had the red railed beast, I won.
THE BOARDRIDER BOYZ ARE MAKING A FILM! YOU HEARD!
Our club secretary, Ms Bryant keeps mentioning this ‘trailer’ that the Noosa Film Festival organizers need???
TRAILER! THEY CANT HAVE OUR TRAILER! We need it to carry the boards to the beach, the tent, the fucking tables!
It’s hard enough to get the event set up as is, especially when all these grommets vanish as soon as there is work to be done… The Noosa Film Festival is gonna have to wait we have a show to make!!!!
A surf film, without surfing… And currently without a title.
There’s no doubting it, we had a long and tough night directing 30 drunken, haggard humans, but the magic was going down everywhere. The highest of high times!
Mitch Stjernqvist‘s commitment to character was amazing. Timu, mate, you were the coolest, calmest motherfucker I’ve ever aimed a camera at (Luka ain’t got shit on you!). Oliver Reeves & Luke Page, you boys put up with the real version of the exact culture the film mocks. While it was about, “being one of the boys”, you are now one of the boys. You put up with some serious heckling, and grommet abuse for the sake of keeping this as real as possible. Now you can drop in on any of those old dooleys you want / Dean Connelly, Ryan Campbell, Daniel Vardy, Jasper Endersby / You were apart of a night that only comes along once in a blue moon. Jaden, you saved me again. I love you. You’re a king. Drake, the best impromptu saffa’ness I ever did see bru, shot lekka fiar krekka!!! It’s a pity you were meant to be silent… Biggest ups to Ben Osborne, the photo assassin, you were working from take one to the wrap, and these few photo’s paint last nights picture… Cheers to all cast & crew // RV CHOSEN FAMILY!!! //
the question was: “Where’s Brady?”
While working on a recent project we found ourselves with a few spare hours in between shoots. We called Jaz, we had no plans, no direction and basically said… ‘Let’s shoot something, we’ll just make it up as we go… The light is nice, there’s a pool on one side of our apartment, a tennis court the other’… Sometimes no direction is the best direction, but only sometimes.
This is ‘POOLSIDE // COURTSIDE’

I grew up with tapes. Cassettes & VHS, TDK Headcleaners that you had to drip liquid into and shit like that, and for some sentimental reason they created better memories, or the pictures & sounds that came out of them had more meaning than the digital days we’re in now. It’s all so easy now, back in the day you had to beg to lend a mate’s new surf vid off him or raid his parents cupboards for their porn, then take note of where the tape was up too and make sure you rewound it back to the exact spot, there was a science to tape, you had to make mix tapes, not just drag and drop a playlist… (There’s probably older crew than me reading this thinking… ‘check this prick out, I had film and records motherfucker!’). Either way, its 2015 now and if you fuck off the advertisements, You tube is one of the greatest things of the 21st century, and the main reason why? It’s because some bored motherfuckers found all these old tapes and have ‘digitized’ for everyone to enjoy. Cassette’s brought me Rage against the machine, Nirvana, Rancid, Talking Heads, Pink Floyd & Sabbath. VHS brought me Momentum, Focus, Searching for Tom Curren, Wheels on Fire and more importantly, Eddie Murphy ‘Delirious’. The greatest comedy of my lifetime. My dad hired it from Tewantin Video and we never took it back, I watched it every morning before school for months until we melted the thing. I used to get on the school bus and recite Eddie… ‘She’s a bigfoot Gus’… I knew more lines from Delirious than any Nirvana album. Anyhow, Blah blah, I’ve had a big day of editing and so I just watched a piece from Delirious to make it all go away in laughter… ‘I kick the motherfucker with everything I got Eddie, and then I giggle my motherfuckin’ ass off’.
Excuse all the swearing but I’m high on Eddie Murphy right now. I also named my new dog Eddie.
