Most fans know WSL Championship Tour surfer Courtney Conlogue for her warrior-like approach. But the Californian, who was runner-up to the World Title in 2016, also has an artistic side and a lifelong wanderlust that has led her to countless destinations worldwide. More recently, however, she followed her passion for surf, art and adventure to Havana, Cuba, where she immersed herself in the culture and chased some waves — more like wavelets, to be accurate — for laughs, learning and an unparalleled experience. Sea Change is the product of her trip, in partnership with Billabong Women’s. It’s a visual travelogue soaked in sunshine, laden with music and splashed with local surf and smiles. It’s a virtual passport to a place that, despite loosening borders, is still terra incognita for even the most intrepid of travelers. Until now.
TRIUMPH IN THE DESERT is a short documentary film focusing on the crew at BA Moto, and their passion for restoring British motorcycles from the 60’s and retrofitting them into race machines capable of taking on the brutal sport of desert racing. Follow along as they restore two 1969 Triumphs, then race them for the first time, in a story about taking the hard route to achieve something greater.

Ellen Demsky is 74 years old and regularly runs marathons and competes in triathlons. She didn’t start racing until she was 60. Ellen is such a positive and energetic person, it’s hard to believe that she’s in her mid 70’s. As she put it “If she can do it at 74, you can do it.”
