Margaux X Deflow

“This fin model got inspired from an alternative style of surfing that mixes reactivity and trim. The design comes from a very big influence in architectural shapes from the 70s. The square in the corner is yellow because it is a pop colour and it represents the sun, the warmth of summer . I wanted to make something simple, minimalist but also original. Making Something that matches aesthetically with any board was important.”

Margaux is one of our favourite surfers to see on a wave. Her pure perception of the sea and way of transforming her creativity into art inspires everyone near her. Margaux’s fin adds more performance and manoeuvrability than pivot fins.

First Shape - Adrien Toyon

There are few things as exciting (and challenging at the same time) as making your own surfboard. Understanding the design and visualising how your craft will go. And then, of course, surfing it for the first time.

After our “First Love” video, Adrien Toyon decided to try and shape his first board with the help of the local legend Peta. Once all the process was finished, he took the board back to his home in Reunion Island. Coming back to the waves that you surf since you were a child is very special. This time, with the first shape, it was even more.

Starring Adrien Toyon and Peta

Volcanic Dream - Manuel Lezcano

Manuel Lezcano lives in front of one of the heaviest reef breaks in Europe, “El Quemao” in the Canary Islands. Where most of the people see a thick and hollow barrel that breaks on the sharp volcanic rocks of Lanzarote, Manuel has lived many of the best moments of his live inside that dreamy wave.

Volcanic Dream is a short video that has being produced thanks to the local community of La Santa, In Process, Quemao Class, Franito Surf Home.

Thank you also to the filmers David Toribio, German Abreu, Alejandro Marote.

Thanks to Gorka Ezkurdi for the cover picture. And thanks to Oscar Valencia for directing this project.


Gracias al Mar

We would like to introduce you to Adrian Lopez, stylish surfer and a unique character from our surfing culture. With the influence of many other surfers and shapers, he started to shape his own boards trying to experience and find his own style.

When he saw one of the longest swells of the decade approaching the coast of Morocco, he finished a couple of big fishes and drove south. The result, pure flow and connection.

Deflow x Adrien Toyon

Deflow introduces the new collaboration fin with Adrien Toyon.

Adrien is not only an amazing surfer, but a free soul, humble and charismatic. He comes from Reunion Island, although currently he resides in Biarritz, where you can see him flying over the high tide wedges.

Adrien Toyon’s surfing is wild and powerful. He likes airs and strong carves on open faces. While designing and testing his signature model fins, Adrien went through different shapes and materials, and we ended up keeping the classic honeycomb composition. Stiff in the base, with a bit of flex in the tip, Adrien’s fin works in both pointbreaks and beachbreaks.

Deflow and Donizetti - New Dnd 8,75"

We have always been inspired by how Clovis understands surfing. Were some people just see it as a summer entertainment, Clovis has made surfing his life, and has very clear vision of the importance of culture, respect and legacy.

There is few things we can tell about his surfing that you haven’t seen yet. His clean style and elegance walking on the board feels like jazz in our ears. A piece constructed with the right perfect notes, a mastery of rhythm while leaving room for improvisation always performed without frills.

We feel fortunate to collaborate with Clovis in this Dnd 8,75″ fin, a “speed fin”, made for trimming with control at high speeds.

BALLADE | Clovis Donizetti & Thomas Lodin

We all know winter in France feels quite long, right? Some of us get a thick wetsuit and warm coffee before morning surfs, others just take a plane and run away.

“Every winter for more than a decade now, I’ve been flying away from the cold winters to find warmer places. At first, my trips were mainly for surfing or competitions. This year, we visited our second home, Australia.” Clovis

One glider, a musical improvisation by Clovis and Thomas behind the lenses. The simple pleasure of sliding on long and warm waves of the southern hemisphere.

FLIGHT 566 TO BEIRUT

Adrien Toyon was born under shelling in a hospital basement north of Beirut during the civil war which once ravaged the peaceful and prosperous Lebanon. Actually, his real name is Adrien Khouery Toyon.

He moved to Reunion Island when he was four years old, where he learned to surf. But everytime he goes back to Lebanon it feels like home.

During a winter swell in the Mediterranean, Adrien and the crew from Wasted Talent went on a trip to Lebanon. Adrien wanted to surf a mythical slab near where he was born that had never been surfed called ‘Yours’.

So there they went, on the Flight 566 to Beirut, and stood at Lebanese passport control being asked by men with handsome moustaches and heavily braided shoulders as to their intentions.


Badung Strait - Oscar Valencia

 

We know Oscar for long time now. We saw each other in the beach everyday

when we were kids, and we followed his path through his snowboarding career

and video making.

 

After that, he focused in surfing, and since then he surprises us developing cool

projects with a unique taste and point of view.

 

He travelled to Keramas while all the WSL circus was happening and he

captured some moments from the free sessions. Maybe not what you are used to

see here, but definitely worth to watch the cool vibes and water angles from our

friend.
