Studies in coastal philosophy: surfing's soul and other cosmic concepts
Satchell, KM 2014, 'Studies in coastal philosophy: surfing's soul and other cosmic concepts', paper presented to the Byron Bay Surf Festival, SurfLit Lounge, Byron Bay, NSW 25 October.
Kim Satchell talks about the symbols and deep culture of surfing, including history, design and evolution. He suggests that soul-surfing and the ethos of country-soul, is not something historically dated or romanticised, but as something necessary and timely in the 21stcentury. Kim comes from the world of surf-academia, who love penning on about the ocean’s mysteries. This will be a fun and quirky session to tune into.
