The Heart & The Sea
We spent the weekend on the Central Coast for the much anticipated film release of The Heart & The Sea. Just as the title suggests the film encompasses the heart of Nathan and his family and their realtionships with a few special surfers that have been formed by the sea. Showcasing beautiful surfing nathan has shot and edited this film with a passion that shows through each clip.
I was lucky enough to be a part of the film. 4 weeks after I had returned to surfing we met up with Nathan in Byron. Blue water and small peelers rolled down the point, we shot all the footage during a long morning session at the Pass. Rayson was 3 months old and enjoyed the time in the trees at Tomo’s rock nestled in the arms of Adam, and got to share and begin a very special loving friendship of his own with the Oldfield and Rae families.
Nathan’s past films have always been a ‘guiding light’ and inspiration to my own personal creativity. Sometimes I find it difficult to articulate my own connection with the sea. I think Nathan captures all that is beautiful, pure, true and peaceful… his films emulate the essence of why we hold a passion that runs so deep and expresses an infinity for the sea. Thank you Nathan and the Oldfield family for showing the world why we love the deep blue.
