Alan Stokes: stoked to surf green water

Alan Stokes and Tim Davies have teamed up to deliver a new surf video project named "Strange Beautiful Life". In a series of episodes, the surfer and the filmmaker will try to capture the essence of surfing in totally different conditions.

"Strange Beautiful Life. These words have been banging around in my head for some time now. Don't know why, I just like the way it provokes meaning I guess. These have been the words I have lived life by for the last year or so, seemed a fitting title to the project at hand and the only way I could get them to stop banging", says Alan Stokes.

In the first chapter of "Strange Beautiful Life", Alan Stokes escapes from freezing Newquay, in Cornwall, to the warmer waters of Central America.

"For me, it's all about trying to show all aspects of Stokesy's surfing in different conditions whilst creating something entertaining that anyone will want to watch. Were trying to mix the surfing with a countries beauty, Stokesy's weird ways and most importantly quality music", adds Davies.
