Living with Alex Sorgente and Robin Bolian for almost two months is like living at 200 km per hour. We recovered them last September in Getxo, in the Basque Country near Bilbao, where Alex took home the well-deserved victory with his unusual bowl lines.
After Getxo begins his holiday on the French soil at Hossegor, in Facciosnao’s surf houses, always with Robin a blonde goblet who rocks.


The rhythms are not those of the contest. The alarm clock is dictated by biorhythms, or, without the bio, only by the rhythms of the night before.
That’s why we chose to shoot a video where Alex would tell the sensations and the mood of that exact instance. Accustomed to the adrenaline, to the thousand blows, to some swollen and bruised ankle that as an obsession always appear in the usual place, the usual place where the fuck you bang every time! A period of relax for who skates so hard can be a good thing, even if staying away from skateboarding is practically impossible.
In the photos and in the video you will not find fish dinners, chats, discussions, tales of old memories that have seasoned our long days together. All the ingredients of a daily life, that living that makes you feel really close to your friends.
In the ass, nostalgia! We’ll meet in a while!
