Jonathan Smit Presents | These Waters Part 1

These Waters | Part 1

These Waters | Part 1

Filmed over the past winter in surf spots all over New Zealand.

The idea behind all of this was to document winter through my eyes; the road trips, the cold weather, the people. No pro surfers in this clip, just the frothiest south islanders you’ll ever meet. To put it lightly, it’s been an experience and a half shooting this film. I’ve met so many people, drunk a whole lot of coffee, clocked up a heap of kilometers, and experienced a whole lot of New Zealand.

Part one is the just the beginning.

Thanks to everyone along the way, your hospitality, patience and generosity.

Here’s to next winter.

Growing up in New Jersey, Shawn discovered and quickly immersed himself in the sub-culture of surfing and skateboarding in the mid 80’s. With a diverse and eclectic background, Shawn has walked the path of a competitive surfer, Hare Krsna monk, action sports industry player in NYC, DIY theology and religions major, and a touring punk rock musician. Now a father and self-proclaimed seeker of the “soul” of surfing, Shawn enjoys sessions with friends at uncrowded peaks along his home state’s shoreline and writing about his surf related experiences.
