The eco of childhood memories fill the space of our present intensely. A recorder is useful to walk through our past. “Sound of surfing” is a reunion of Andy with the expectations he had about himself when he was a child. The persecution of a marine living with a fanciful character creates a bound with a past time in which the energies to find a place in the world hurriedly and the discords with our dreams lay down. Dreams that finally come true but, in a way, kill the fantasy. Dreams that, precisely, by coming true stop being dreams.

“Sound of surfing” is a film about the need to back up, stop and take distances. It is an experimental short film about the surfer Andy Crière. It shows a break in the middle of the training season’s frenzy. Filmed in Hendaye, his home city and Hondarribia, a village where he also feels he belongs to with all his family, and other different parts of the Basque Country, it is an introspection moment in which Andy intends to travel the past and the present. Special thanks to Subaru, ION Action Sports, Isdin.
We also made a book from the project. An exclusive edition of 100 pieces, photographs by Ginés Díaz and texts by Ximo Peris designed by Jorge Leon. Book size A5 printed on offset paper 150 gr. A pulse with the past that wants to become a pact with its fantasy and innocence.
Next we show some images of making of the project.
