Taitao expedition was a dream that came true after 5 years of hard effort and work from Benjamin, Manuel, Andres and collaborators. Sailing through Patagonia’s fiords and Pacific Coastlines on the search of waves never surfed before. Exploring remote, virgin, inhospitable and extreme locations. On this expedition uncertainty is always present. There was a big chance of arriving to the place and finding no waves or a big storm that would make it impossible to sail any further, but if you don’t risk it you will never know. This is a documentary that shows how a group of friends and unknowns join together on a journey to revive the true spirit of surf adventure into the unknown.

Case Study 01 Marc Andreini

Case Study 01 Marc Andreini from Daydream on Vimeo.

"This series is known as our Case Study Series where we take a deeper dive into the knowledge holders of the Daydream Research Center. The first shaper we felt would be important to talk with is Marc Andreini. Andreini is one of the great board building mentors of our time, he has been shaping for over 40 years and brings with him a wealth of information that he humbly shares with up and coming surfers and shapers as well as established ones.
We met up with Andreini for a surf up by his house a little south of San Francisco then went back to his pad to check out his shaping bay, archive of boards & fins, as well as his day to day lifestyle. We all hung out and talked as Andreini shared stories that revolved around two very important subjects to the Daydream Research Center: surf history and board design."

Bill Stewart - the true father of the modern longboard

Bill Stewart, better known as “Kentucky’s Greatest Surfer”, was born in Bowling Green KY in 1951
In 1978, Bill started his own label “Stewart Surfboards” and opened the first shop in Laguna Beach. By himself, Bill hand painted, hand shaped, took orders, and sold airbrushed T-shirts & hats in his tiny Laguna Beach shop. Marrying his lovely bride Christy, and becoming the father of a son and daughter were events that sparked a new found determination and work ethic in his business and the craft of board building. As his notoriety in the surfing world grew, he put together a surf team that at the time included names like Mike Parsons, Pat Allen, Shane & Gavin Beschen.
It was in the mid 80’s when Bill’s inventive mind, came up with the idea that would be the one of the greatest achievements of his distinct surfboard designs. He was after a longboard that would go faster and turn harder than what current longboard designs were capable of. The result of that search was the beveled rail Hydro Hull that had a distinctive single to double concave bottom and a 2+1 fin setup. To this day, the Hydro hull is still a proven design standard for the modern longboard.
With the success of the Hydro Hull, Stewart Surfboards grew exponentially and Bill opened a larger shop in his favorite surf town of San Clemente. The shop has been at that same location for 28 + years. It’s just a short drive up the coast from San Onofre and Trestles.
“We are the Kings of Customs” Bill likes to say, and “Everyday we prove that by building the Best”. Bill has himself shaped over 40,000 boards in his career, and Stewart Surfboards has produced over 100,000 boards since the start of the company.
Bill Stewart – An Artist, Shaper, Inventor and Surfer with no stopping in sight.

First Love

When the first swells of winter hit the French coast, we met Adrien Toyon around Biarritz to see how the banks were working. With the tide and waves getting better, he took us to a lonely left he had been surfing lately.
He opened his car trunk and waxed an old 5’10” Lighting Bolt twin shaped by Graham Smith.
“That was my first ever surfboard. When I was 9 years old, my parents gave me for Christmas, almost 20 years ago. I found it again in my parents house in Reunion Islands and I brought it here. Then it spent some long time in my garage looking at me hahaha…That single concave and sharp lines were perfect on this day. Never thought I was going to surf this board again, and even more in this kind of waves.”

Waves were firing and, as Adrien’s surfing can demonstrate, board choice was on point.
