Nostrum Collective

PRESENTED ON JUN 05, 2014
IN GENOVA @ VOL 9

Nostrum Collective is a photographic project to show the relationship between a group of friends formed on the sea for surfing and the Sea through our photo shoot. Every kind of relationship with the sea is accepted, whether it be surfing, swimming, fishing or diving- or simply looking into that magical blue water. Nostrum Collective would like to be a high quality photographic diary with a very deep Ligurian and Mediterranean identity to share with all people who love the sea and the many beautiful moments it gives to us.

Stand Up Paddling

BY HENRIK FAHLÉN
IN VARBERG

SUP stands for "Stand Up Paddleboarding," which means that you stand up on a big surfboard and use a paddle. This ancient form of surfing reemerged when surf instructors realized the benefits of it, that by being higher you can better see oncoming waves. Today, SUP has turned into the fastest growing water sport in the world. (in Swedish)

Getting it Just Right

BY DAVID KERNICK
@ VOL 2 ON JUN 26, 2014

As a local surf life-saver and regular ski-paddler, David Kernick has spent many years on the beautiful local waterways or surfing the beaches. His view of the local area comes from a different perspective to most as he regularly paddles in the late afternoon light and has seen many spectacular sunsets. This passion for water and low light is reflected in much of his photographic work and he enjoys the peacefulness and serenity of shooting nature, water, and landscapes. David also loves the social interaction of portrait photography and watching his subjects develop in confidence, capturing their personalities and in particular seeing the smile on their faces when they see the final product.

"Presentation of the Day" on September 15, 2014.

Sustainable Surfboards

BY COBUS JOUBERT
@ VOL 45 ON AUG 15, 2017

From plastic bags to pesticides - most of the waste we produce on land eventually reaches the oceans, either through deliberate dumping or from run-off through drains and rivers. Surfboards are 100% toxic, but there are sustainable surf craft options that can replace these toxic products. Cobus Joubert explains.
