In Celebration Of The Barrel
2013: The year of the Barrel
The Barrel is a year-long surf project announced in April, 2013. Professional and amateur surfers, photographers and videographers around the world have the possibility to showcase their passion: Barrel surfing. It is all about their skills, creativity and love to the waves. There will be a monthly episode of the finest places of earth with surfing at its best, called “Monthly Grid”. The greatest clips will be awarded with prizes, like iON Cameras.
Harrington (project director), who has been shooting surf and snow around the globe for more than 20 years with more than 150 magazine covers to his name, has brought together an international line-up of iconic surfers to participate in the iON The Barrel Movie, slated for November release. These include Reef McIntosh, Jamie Mitchell, Rusty Long, Ken “Skindog” Collins, Marty Paradisis, Peter Hayes, Justin “Jughead” Allport, Laurie Towner and a host of others.
“We’ll be on a hunt for barrels all year from Hawaii to Tahiti, up to Indonesia and down to Tasmania. The movie will track our journey and take audiences inside these beautiful, majestic waves” said Harrington.
