Busting down the door for our 2nd Under 9’ & Single! In this division at the 9‘ Festival surfers were able to ride anything under 9’ with a single fin. Unsuprisingly the majority of the contestants opted for 70’s style shortboards. Thrown together in two piles of ten for a half hour each, it was more of an expression session than a contest but waves were judged and finalists were made. In the last 30 minutes of the 5th Annual Deus 9’ & Single Festival, 8 single fin shortboarders traded off perfect waves. Each surfer rode a wave on one set alone… 8 waves for 8 surfers in one set! We couldn’t have asked for more.
I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night follows the simplistic travels of two surfers, meeting friends along the way, on an open ended journey across an archipelago littered with islands and breaks. Connected by ribbons of tarmac and separated by deep ocean valleys these islands have been here for millennia and will continue to do so for millennia to come. An veritable eden for waves of every nature, from long reeling glassy points breaks to sketchy urchin infested waves in the middle of nowhere

This morning before the sun had peered out from below the horizon they were putting boards on the back of the truck and heading over to the other side of the island. The big swell that came in last night almost guaranteed them waves there. Their back, fed and watered and most dispersed for a relaxing afternoon of massages and naps, before perhaps a wave or two just before dark.
