This fall, Quiksilver is proud to present “Shaka,” Mathieu Crepel’s latest brainchild produced in collaboration with Almo Films.
Showcasing breathtaking visions of mountains and waves, “Shaka” follows the multiple-times snowboarding World Champion on his quest to surf some of the world’s most challenging breaks. Filmed at iconic locations in Hawaii, Italy, Oregon, Indonesia, and around Mathieu’s home in the Southwest of France, “Shaka” introduces you to diverse legends in the surf and snowboarding world such as Koa & Eddie Rothman, Guillaume Nery, Kepa Acero, Gerry Lopez, Victor Daviet and Nathan Fletcher.
Growing up riding both waves and powder, Mathieu Crepel has become one of the few athletes to excel in two disciplines that have a lot in common but are still so different. Retired from the contest circuit but still restless for adventure, the former Olympic contender decided to face one of the biggest challenges of his life: Surfing the notorious wave of Jaws, Hawaii.
Filmed over a period of two years, “Shaka” tells the story of a personal journey and deep connection to nature. Embodying the pursuit of the mountain and the wave that Quiksilver stands for in an unprecedented way, it is all about exploring, getting out of your comfort zone and having some great fun along the way.
