This is the cover of a handmade dvd case I made for Neil Lumsden down in Samoa. The name was his idea. The footage was some of the first surfing footage I shot, mostly footage of him. He had moved down there with his wife and young son, and he lived a really simple existance back then. I remember he'd be ready to paddle out at some heavy lonely break, and he'd look at his board and shake his head and go, "...great, no wax." And then he'd head out and get barreled.
