Dakar, Senegal. A place we very much adore.

So much so, two of our editorial team are currently on the ground assisting with our Surfboards for Senegal initiative.

We’re also working on a little clip of sorts. But that’s all we can say right now…..

In the meantime we encourage you to pay a visit yourself and if you need anymore persuasion, then look no further than this visual gem for African brand Bantu Wax, courtesy of creative siblings Roberto & Lea Colombo.

Shot over the course of 4 days in December last year, the result is a kaleidoscopic collage of dreamlike visuals, perfectly capturing Dakar’s dynamic community and the contrasting moments of rich vibrancy and peaceful serenity within it.

Inspired by Africa’s transition from Dark Continent to Bearer of Light, tales of the mermaid goddess of oceans Mami Wata, and a passion for surfing, Bantu merges the rich history of African art and textiles with Africa’s deeply rooted surf culture.
