What kept me busy in between comps, a new surf movie shot in Europe and Indonesia.

An addictive journey that takes us to a game of search, encounters, reunions, debts and failures. "Slot Machine” isn't just a surf flick; it's a captivating voyage into the heart of the ocean's secrets and the whims of fortune on different sides of the world: Portugal, France and Indonesia. A symphony of waves and chance, where the ocean's melody and the spinning of fate entwine, leaving us in awe of the beauty and unpredictability that bind us to the sea's enchanting embrace. 
We are not merely riders of waves but gamblers on a cosmic roulette: a jackpot of luck or a failed bet.
