Watch: Shane Sykes Nearly Got Stuck In West Oz—What A Pity!
This pre-covid jaunt resulted in the short film, ‘Reach’.
Around mid-March of this year, South African surfer Shane Sykes was on a long-awaited trip to Western Australia with filmer Michael Veltman.
“Just before Covid-19 was in full tilt, I was lucky enough to spend two weeks in Western Australia with young, up-and-coming South African surfer Shane Sykes,” Michael said. “Our goal was to film enough to create part two of Reach, Shane’s video series he’s been working toward this year.
“We woke up in the dark every morning. With coffee travel mugs in hand, we drove the coastline checking every spot and doing our best to make the right call on where to surf that day. On that stretch of coast, it’s so easy to just drive around for hours and miss the right window for the best waves. We’d often get to our chosen spot, paddle out, just to have the shark alarm go off and the boys be chased out the water. With all that said, it’s safe to say, our hard work paid off.”
