Shot during Typhoon Season in Japan, ‘Kawa No Me’ follows two surfers Tom Carroll and Hector Santamaria as they chase perfect waves in surreal locations across the country during a rare, perfect storm.
‘MAD SYMMETRY’ is the result of our annual artist collaboration with Monster Children. This year we teamed up with US based artist MadSteez to provide three unique artwork designs for the project. Tom Carroll and Oscar Langburne are the featured surfers and the film is shot on location in the North Island of New Zealand.
The film is comprised of three sections, divided up with the different board artworks.
Part 1: WEENafrican // The Turtle Twin Model
Part 2: WEENvase // The Lucid Eye Model
Part 3: WEENrose // The Six Feet Model

This short edit is the result of Hector and Max’s trip to California last year. It features three sessions of Hector in Southern California, cut to lifestyle film footage. This last trip we also spent some time working with Jesse Guglielmana and he is introduced to our family here.

Hector Santamaria went to the East Coast of Australia in 2015 . Hector Santamaria’s style doesn’t look like much else we’ve seen, but why are we trying to compare in the first place? This is Hector Santamaria. Enjoy.
The visual result of a collaboration between Eye Symmetry and New York Artist Dimitri Drjuchin.
The film documents the making of the boards in Sydney Australia and follows Hector Santamaria as he surfs each model on the rugged coastline of South Australia.
Hector rides The Sandman, followed by The Cali Quad and finally The Lucid Eye in picturesque barrels.
