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.
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.
Working with Aquabumps again, this time in collaboration with Peroni we set off to Italy to capture the summer, the beaches and the waves of the Mediterranean… Yep thats right, waves in the med! Aquabumps joined forces with Peroni to produce a series of short films that will take you to a place that we all want to be whilst hiding in our office cubicles – the beach.
