COMPASSING – Cyrus Sutton x Reef

COMPASSING - a short film in search of freedomIn the latest chapter of Cyrus Sutton’s adventures, he’s customized his van for experiencing life on the road. Through cutting, sanding, welding, and staining, he’s transformed his old van into a unique camper that’s been helping him traverse the Western side of North America to seek out good waves and good people.

“Compassing was a chance to take the surf trip I’d always wanted. We departed at the beginning of May and lucked into the run of south swell that slammed the west coast in 2013.”
