Australia is reported to have over ten thousand beaches and over the last few months Torren Martyn has visited more of them than you. If you’ve been following the Lost Track series presented by SWELL, then you’re aware of the scale of the adventure he and photographer pal Ishka Folkwell had undertaken this year. Inspired by a similar journey he’d been on when he was a boy, the pair set off in a loaded Land Rover from Byron Bay, wrapped along the east coast, around the southern coast from Victoria, South Australia and up the shores of the west. A unique experience as you can imagine. Lush forests, red desert, rugged cliffs, sand-bottoms, draining ledges and waves of exceptional quality. At last, the editing grind is over and the full feature is live and ready to showcase. What they’ve produced is basically a kind of Australian travel documentary cut between edits of Torren’s silky twin fin surfing. Worth the wait.

Desert LostTrack

“I’ve been spending the last few years over in Indo, Mexico and a bunch of different places, so coming home to Australia the inspiration really came from doing a 2 year trip around Australia with my parents when I was a grom. I was thinking about that trip and the fact that a lot of us don’t really get to explore Australia too deeply so it seemed really fitting.”

Surf Stitch Lost Track 3
