I was initially drawn to the Mentawai Archipelago by the lure of perfect waves peeling against picturesque beaches, rimmed by lush, tropical rainforest - although I was quick to discover that there is so much more to this special place than surfing.
I ended up staying for quite a few years and working on a range of things, from surf-guiding on charter boats and resorts to programme design with Surfaid International, punctuated by periods of vagabonding about the simple villages and hidden reefs.
One of the first places I was lucky enough to stay was deep in the rainforests of Siberut Island, where I was introduced to the local community, as well as some of its animal inhabitants. I’ll never forget as a wide-eyed 22 year-old, watching in fear as one of the village women’s Malarial fever became so intense and convulsive, that the Sikerei (shamans) were called for from the neighbouring village.
Longhaired, loin-clothed silhouettes arrived late into the night, paddling up-river in a dugout canoe under the warm moonlight. Bells jingled and their reassuring mantras bounced off the water. The chanting continued as they made their way to the sick lady’s hut to sing, dance and heal.
I tried over my time in the different villages to learn about the culture, language and environment, and I hope that this video respects all three. My intentions by making it are to give a digital voice to the obvious and resonating protest in Mentawai.
The people of Mentawai, especially those of the traditional persuasion are easily the most welcoming, humbling and richest of communities I have come across in my travels. I believe they (like many indigenous cultures) represent a time and a world that demands respect for the natural environment, community and balanced spirituality. Theirs is a paradigm long forsaken by the modern trappings of big cities and belligerent profit margins.
Information is not always easy to obtain, but to my knowledge many areas within Mentawai have in 2014, managed to deter the palm oil companies, whilst other villages are still in negotiations. Other villages still have relinquished traditional titles of the land, and have consequently been locked into development concessions that render the land in question ‘State owned’.

Leftover footage that I had from a session that went down a month or so ago. Even though there was maybe a bit too much East in the swell, everyone still got right into it!
A grade footage from this session will be released in separate rider profiles.

Director, photographer and Nikon Ambassador Corey Rich was presented with a great, though certainly not simple and straightforward opportunity: Create a short film, and a behind-the-scenes film, about three prolific photographers using the new Nikon D4s in seven locations spanning from San Diego to Snowbird, Utah, to Tampa to the coast of Ireland. The catch? He had only 21 days to do it, and would be using all prototype equipment.
As a long recognized outdoor and adventure photographer and filmmaker, Rich has relied on “small footprint productions” methods, tactics and equipment to be light and fast and capture still and moving pictures from some of the most remote spots on earth. A longtime proponent of small footprint productions, Rich employed this approach to make DEDICATED.
"The Making of DEDICATED" shows the behind-the-scenes story of a light-and-fast, small-footprint-production team traveling together halfway around the world over 21 days, pushing themselves to the brink as storytellers, and finding an inspired camaraderie around the shared love of photography.
Bruno Santos chega na sua praia, Itacoatiara. Logo depois, encontra Marcelo Trekinho e Guilherme Herdy, tambem surfistas profissionais, que sem perder tempo com a entrada de um enorme Swell com ondas de até 4 metros, pegam seu Jet-Ski para a prática de Tow-in. Ótimas ondas, porém no meio da session o Jet quebra e eles vão em busca de um mecânico.
Ainda no mesmo dia, aproveitando esse swell muito grande e depois de arrumarem o jet-ski, eles voltam correndo pra água, para mais um show de surf. Para finalizar o dia Bruno Santos sobe na pedra do Costão, que tem uma vista maravilhosa do Rio e Saquarema e aprecia um lindo final de tarde.
