Joshe Faulkner has a deep well of Talent
Joshe Faulkner grew up in Jbay and has honed his talent in the competitive lineups and on the strong South African junior series. Some big results over the years, but it is watching him free surf where you really gain perspective on how deep his talent runs. This is why I asked Billabong to give me some time with him to film and boy am I glad I did.
The Kid seems Quiet
When you need Joshe he comes off as this super quiet and reserved human. But travelling with him for two weeks I got to find out he is pretty sharp, has a dark sense of humour and once he feels comfortable around you he actually loves a chat. The main thing I learnt about him though, is that he literally loves surfing more than anything else. He will surf for hours, as in 6 hour session, come out and eat and go straight back in for another few hours.
Make It is just the start
This is our first project working together, but plans are already in motion for a bigger and more radical film to be shot this year. So watch this space, give the young man a follow on social – Joshe on Instagram – and I will keep you posted as we look to make the best free surfing film out of South Africa ever!
In the meantime enjoy this, our first project together…
