If you’ve ever been to tourmaline beach in san diego, or, as the locals call it, “old mans”, there’s a chance you’ve seen a guy on a huge longboard called a “Kook Box” surfing in a sweater and a sailor hat. That’s Brian Bent, a local surfer with a unique style. But there’s more to Brian than just a throwback style and big smile. Brian is a painter, a musician, a surfer, a skater, and a hot rod enthusiast. And as you’ll see in this Biopic, he’s pretty badass at all of them!
A Shared Moment with Israel Preciado from Quality Peoples on Vimeo.
This documentary film is the first in a series of Quality Peoples short films that take a brief glimpse into the lives of our collaborators and inspirations. Israel Preciado is a longboarder cat from Mexico and the unofficial Mayor of Sayulita. You might know Izzy as the face of QP, he’s the stoic guy in all the photos. Antithetical to the image we’ve created of him, Izzy is actually one of the kindest, funniest, unassuming guys you’ll meet in the lineup. Izzy’s quiver runs deep and in this short film we spend a few shared moments with him as he talks about his childhood, his favorite spots, slowing things down, the art of small wave riding, traveling, learning to surf and the act of surfing as both sport and meditation. With a special appearance by Lola Mignot. This short documentary was filmed, directed and edited by the folks at Quality Peoples. We hope you enjoy.
The Slaves of Summer camping surf trip through France, Spain & Portugal with RVCA Europe Advocates Robin Falxa (France), Jack Whitefield (UK), Adrian Siebert (Germany), Matteo Fabbri (Italy) & Benjamin Jean Jean (France).
We all know Europe isn’t known for its waves during summer, but it is known to deliver a good time. So we decided on shoving 4 nationalities into a couple of rental vehicles with a bunch of camping gear, too many surfboards and hit the road for a cliché euro trip.
We got lost, went skating, partied too much, met girls, camped on the side of the road, surfed shitty waves and crashed our rental car. But we had fun, even though we couldn’t understand each other.
