Knack studios created 4 films to document the Havaianas collaboration with beach photography institution Aquabumps.
The featured print on the Havaianas pair by Aquabumps ‘The Caribbean Look’ captures a busy summer’s day, on Australia’s iconic Bondi Beach. A tribute to our picture-perfect coast, it details bathers dotted along Bondi’s sandy shores and crustal blue water. To showcase how this shot was created we followed photographer Eugene Tan up above the iconic Sydney coastline and showcase how he photographs the beaches from above.
The story behind the collaboration was executed in 4 videos and shared across multi digital platforms including Youtube, Facebook and Instagram.

Our latest work with Aquabumps and Land Rover celebrates the famous surf route in the short ﬁlm ‘Road to the Pro’, a road trip from Sydney to the Gold Coast’.
Beginning in Sydney and ending at Snapper Rocks a total of 844 km’s – The home of the Quiksilver Pro, the ﬁrst stop on the ASP calender at the infamous Super Bank – Snapper Rocks.
The trip is quintessentially Australian, adventure surf tripping with a likeable bunch of surfers and following the vision of ::Uge and Aquabumps. The beach lifestyle presents surfers with style, road-tripping the east coast in search of empty barrels, good times, beautiful scenery and meeting colourful character locals & wildlife along the way.
Aquabumps a stylish celebration of all things water based captures the local beaches of Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs Tamarama and Bondi peak summer time. Paying virtue to Australians love of the surf, beach and sunsets — summer time is anticipated by locals and travelers from all over the world. A little moment in time of summer – Aussie style.
Over the summer months Knack Studios worked with BlueStar Revolution to document the Nike Block Series. The Block Series, Nike Surfing’s grassroots competition tour for young athletes aged between 9 & 20. With a unique non-elimination Round Robin format allowing for competitors to surf three times throughout the one-day events, the Block Series just hit one goal : crown the best and most progressive surfers in the SuperGroms, Groms and Junior divisions, encouraging performance and good vibes bringing together aspiring pro surfers for a great surf encounter.
