They dreamed of riding in St Brandon, a true utopia, but they knew getting there wasn’t going to be easy. The voyage was tough, crossing wild and rolling seas, testing their limits. But in the end, the journey unfolded exactly as it should have, arriving on the white shores of a paradise lost, St Brandon, knowing that this windy playground was everything they needed. Read what the Duotone crew had to say about their trip.
The episode shows the biggest lesson I learned from the trip to St. Brandon. From now on, I will 100% be taking seasickness tablets with me on all future boat rides! I totally underestimated the journey; I did not think it was going to be that hard.
It’s difficult to say what I enjoyed most about this trip; the adventure, the challenge, the aspect of living so basically. There were only two houses on the island and we ate fish and rice for breakfast, lunch and dinner. No fruit or veg, or connection to the world other than a satellite phone. I loved being present in the moment, enjoying each others’ company and interacting.
The kiting was great there. We found some cool spots, flat water and decent wind. It was the perfect place for the shoot, it was like a private island. It was special and I will remember the trip for a long time.
The episode really shows what went down and is definitely worth a watch. It brings back good memories. Yes, it was a bumpy start, but it turned into something magical. It was so special and I will remember the trip for a long time.
