The Howling Sea is the story of 6 friends on a motorcycle surf journey through the rugged back roads of Baja in pursuit of waves, adventure and the great unknown. As we ride over a 1000 mile expanse of dust, wind, desert sky and ocean, our will power, ingenuity and creative spirit will be put through tests brought forth by the unforgiving peninsula.
Utilising our combined skillset as photographers, filmmakers, wordsmiths, artists and environmentalists, the journey will result in a culmination of photography, film, words, art and music translating into a hypnotic feast for the ears and eyes.
The Howling Sea will use the harsh beauty of the Baja’s landscape and unique communities to explore the ideas of friendship, freedom and the art of truly living.
We’ll have to strip supplies to essential, and learn to navigate the harsh with idyllic, the reality with the romantic and the sacrifice with the reward in a way that will give these ideas a tangible perspective.
Using the motorcycles and surfboards as our vessels, The Howling Sea explores the perspective of the here and now in the timeless environment of the desert. We throw ourselves at a blank canvas of dry earth and wild surf to experience just what it is to truly embrace whatever the road may hold—the hardships, the mishaps, the wonder and the love.
We are from this earth, of woman and man
Yet in this dream, we are wolves and wolvette
Powerful yet wise, adverse to negativity
Loyal to our pack and never looking back
As the social masses march down main street in conformity
We are slaying life’s back roads feasting on freedom
Searching for what lies outside the mainstream boundaries
As we leave our dens for adventure and extend our range into the unknown
Respect for Mother Nature and all her wonders
Humane towards all sentient beings and living organisms
Never shall an experience or opportunity be taken for granted
But rather realised as a blessing within the miracle of life
We shall not oppose what the journey holds
For all we can control is how we embrace what comes forth
Like a raging river running wild and free
Showing no resistance to the path in front of us
The road ahead and the dust behind us
Don’t exist after they’ve been and gone
For all we have is here and now
All there is, is this moment – and in it we shall rise
As our conscious minds unite
And our human forms take to our bikes
Our kindred spirits will take flight
Our hearts shall burn throughout the night
As we howl down Baja through sand and sea…
