The Involvement Dream

The Involvement Dream from Nathan Oldfield on Vimeo.

Hello friends, I've just released a short film I made for Patagonia called 'The Involvement Dream.' 

Patagonia Ambassador Belinda Baggs rides a surfboard designed in 1968 by fellow Patagonia Ambassador Wayne Lynch. This design came to Wayne in a dream and he called it the Involvement Model. It became the one board quiver that he rode around the world. Nearly forty five years later, Belinda explores what riding that surfboard feels like.

When we look back at that time, we can see that in a few little hotbeds of surfboard design around the globe, boards were getting shorter, outlines were getting curvier, rails were coming down in volume, fins were getting sleeker and moving forward. Wayne Lynch’s Involvement Model is a classic example of these kind of transition era boards. 

So it’s interesting to me at least to see Belinda go back to this kind of transitional board four decades later and reinterpret it with a kind of postmodern retrospective, as a woman with her own rich heritage in Australian surfing; as a well-rounded quiver enthusiast familiar with both the longer & shorter ends of surfcraft; & of course as a world-class logger. I hope you enjoy the film.

  2. Buy cheap Twitter Followers marketing services varies a lot. Some services providers are cheaper, but they verily offer inactive followers. Other services are a bit more costly, and they may offer to some extent more active followers. However, these active followers possibly will unfollow the account later, or require a follow back while inactive followers may bond around for a longer time or permanently. Don’t fear too much approximately the way you stumble upon on Twitter. You just simply tweet from the heart. Don’t strain an excessive amount of approximately the numbers, alternatively, use the platform to connect genuinely with the Twitter fans you have already got, and let the rest deal with itself!
