Watch: LA CABANE

Wasted Talent
Swellnet Dispatch

La Cabane.

Cabin - noun.

A small wooden shelter or house in a wild or remote area.

We would rent a cabin for 14 days and it would be our world.

The waves were out the front and the party was within. We would have guests and other times it would be eerie. The cabin would see after parties, pre parties. pre surf hangovers and post surf beers. The neighbours, kilometres away, would complain and the landlord would tell us not to worry. It was a blissful existence. A precursor to a film premiere tour through Amsterdam and Rome which for Mr Agius would return to France’s bosom as a postscript.

The term “Surf Rave” was born and we clutched onto it dearly.

A great clip Starring Chippa Wilson and Dion Agius. With Jay Davies and to the tunes of Mount Kimbie.

What's the cabin got to do with this?

Nothing.

Results may vary.

Haha yeah what the hell is all this chat about a cabin? More of the same from Agius, expect nothing other than the same tired old airs in gutless surf repeated over and over again. Nobody cares anymore unless you've got the balls to throw down big airs on big sections in solid waves... or if you're a proper small wave wizard like Chippa. Then again, Agius is uber cool and soooo this season

dream team! noticed Davies was wearing a spring suit - is it possible his rage is keeping him warm, even in Europe?

Looking forward to the day when surfing isn't defined by 'air' moves. This was comparable to watching paint dry. Agius was a brilliant surfer once. Now a one trick pony. Next.

I liked it. I didn’t want to see a cabin anyway.
