Aside from being one of the world’s best surfers, Chippa Wilson has a lot more up his sleeve.

Softly spoken and considerate. A connessiour of old cars and bikes. A collector of tattoos. A savant of the weird and beautiful, the cultured and the unadulterated. 

We recently spent some time with Chippa in New York to delve deeper into his psyche. To find what makes him tick. 

Why New York? Well, we thought to get to know better a man who spends 10 months a year on the road, there would be no better place to go then the city with the whole world represented inside it. We would go to New York to not surf and detach. We would go to New York to jump on a train to surf, to reattach and to be grateful of the oceans natural detox after 5 days in the city. 

Filmed on location in New York, New Jersey and France.
