The Desert 2011

  • A boarding escapade in the middle of nowhere

  • Tags:

    You don't normally associate the desert with surfing. But "The Desert 2011" proves the two aren't mutually exclusive. The Shire of Carnavon,  a solid twelve hour drive from Perth in Western Australia, is a narrow coastal strip where the waves meet the desert. Surf filmmaker Matt Pitcher traveled there with boogie boarders Lewy Finnegan and Dave Lush and caught them pulling off some impressive stunts in the waves off the arid shoreline.

    The music comes courtesy of The Rural Alberta Advantage with a track called "Frank, AB," which takes its name from a mining town in Alberta, buried by a rock slide in 1903.
