Filmmaker Chris Nemes, from ZEN Film Works, recently caught up with AFENDS surfer Erwin Taupinard in his home town of Hossegor. Erwin has been living in Hossegor since leaving the Caribbean when he was a gromet. He now rips most days at his favorite bank, La Piste, and in between sessions, he shapes boards for Kevin Olsen and hones his air game at the skate park. Not a bad life, huh?
