Concept Island State Co
Hats Fallen Broken Street
Location Whites Beach, Broken Head, NSW
When I was little, my mum would take me around the hippie surf trail in Indonesia. We'd go from beach to beach, shack to shack, and spend our days soaking in the sun and saltwater and meeting all sorts of travelling folk. Fast forward many years later, and we've taken our own kids along this same trail, on the back of our bikes, zooming over mountains to get to remote Indo surf beaches and to hang with like minded Drifters.
I love surf culture. I love how surfers move around their own hometown, or flow up and down the coast, or travel the world, always in search of the perfect wave. Drifting.
We wanted this collection to be for those Drifters and future Drifters. Easy to wear, with a nod to surf culture and travel. Travel has formed us as a family, and it's a concept Island State Co is built on. We will forever be travellers.
This campaign shoot captures my love for Drifting perfectly; barefoot, climbing down dirt paths, over rocks, along shorelines.
