'Thank You Mother' is a cinematic journey of surfing, simplicity and appreciation. It is a film that isn't afraid to be beautiful, stylish and sincere. Produced by Torren Martyn and Ishka Folkwell with an original soundtrack by Nick Bampton. 'Thank You Mother' is narrated by award winning Australian film maker and life long simplist Albert Falzon, who made the seminal 1970 surf film 'Morning of the Earth'.
'Thank You Mother' began as a story about the act of creating a surfboard and the art of riding one. Exploring the connection between surfer Torren Martyn and his friend, mentor and surfboard shaper Simon Jones of 'Morning of the Earth Surfboards'. This naturally led to the doorstep of another friend and mentor, Albert Falzon and the film became more about connection, creativity and friendship, about surfing, being happy, and living simply.
Shot on location in South Africa, Indonesia and Australia, Ishka Folkwell's original and artful approach to film making captures something of the essence of these places, bringing them to life on screen. Nick Bamptons original musical score was composed for the film, so as Torren Martyn glides with style and power, carving beautiful lines into clean walls, the music echoes the mood and rhythm of his movements perfectly. Perhaps the most powerful element of this creative collaboration between surfers, shapers, filmmakers and musicians is the truth and beauty of Albert Falzons reflections on life. With humility and charisma he offers viewers the keys to a life of contentment, explaining that happiness comes not from having more or being the best, but from having good friends and being kind. 'Thank You Mother' is a film that celebrates appreciation of the simple things and stays with viewers long after they have watched it.
A few years back, we built the Average Joe to be a fun, simple, easy-to-ride board and it became one of our top sellers. After rounds of customer feedback and team testing, we’ve created a souped-up, sleeker version for 2019 … the Ultra Joe.
In this video, watch Channel Islands Surfboard factory employee Pat Beckley test ride this new model. For five decades, CI has employed passionate surfers to build their boards, believing in the concept of infusing surf stoke into every surfboard it makes—no matter what part of the production cycle they work on. As for the Ultra Joe itself, this new board boasts foiled rails, a double-bump squash tail, narrower nose with an updated rocker profile, and additional exit rocker. The results of this new model is a progressive step forward for beginner/intermediate surfers while at the same time is an inviting step down for average to good surfers seeking something fun and cruisy on the smaller, weaker days. Despite all these changes, one thing remains the same: the fun factor.
We’ve had great feedback that it works really well as a quad, but if you are used to riding trip fins that may be your jam.
