This section tells the story of Raph Bruhwiler who if its hunting season can be found in the forest tracking black tail deer when the surf is not all time. We tried to make this clip as organic as possible not adding to much artificial flair. Raph has also been working with a local Vancouver Island wood surfboard builder Wefi Surfboards on making light weight high performance cedar surfboards, we wanted to highlight Raph’s wefi’s as much as possible in this clip also. Vancouver Island is a pretty amazing place.
SURFER: Raph Bruhwiler is Canadas first professional surfer who is pretty much the most grounded human you will ever meet, and if you are lucky enough to have him as a Canadian surf tour guide, you will score.
FILMMAKER: Adam DeWolfe is from Vancouver Island also and has been shooting photo & video for a while.
MUSIC: Goodnight, Texas, Railroad
ADDITIONAL FOOTAGE: Marty Kukler, “Junior”

Last year around this time, the surfing world got a shockwave sent through it’s spine as an unknown talent exploded on the scene without warning. Tucked away on beautiful island of Maui, a young shaggy-haired fellow named Matt Meola flew under the radar despite high-flying aquatic antics.
But a collective- “Who the #$%^ is this kid?!” was uttered by the surfing world when his Innersection submission made history. Since then, his Cinderella story has unfolded and Matt has begun life as a professional surfer. We’re stoked to have him aboard as the newest member of the Sanuk Surf Squad.
Welcome to the team, Matt!
