Board On The Road um dia livre pra curtir, um drop com os amigos, surf, skate, snow, wind, kite, sup, sand, wake e tudo o que tiver uma prancha e uma dose de adrenalina. Um board no s um pedao de madeira, isopor ou fibra de vidro. um estilo de vida.
esquecer o dia de amanh, ou esperar muito o sol nascer para j cair no mar. explorar, sonhar, descobrir. se entregar a vida, viver o hoje, chegar no final e ver que valeu a pena.
Um board uma ferramenta de liberdade. Um meio para a expresso pessoal, um jeito de desafiar seus medos, superar limtes e compartilhar experincias incrveis com os seus amigos.
Board On The Road mais que s esporte na estrada. mais que saber que voc curtiu algum esporte irado pela estrada da sua vida. Board on the road se trata de fazer memrias. De lembrar que, na estrada da vida, curtimos momentos mais que inesquecveis.

Faziam anos que eu planejava fazer uma viagem para a Mentawaii, j que estive em 2011 na Indonsia, porm no tinha tido oportunidade de conhecer a regio do pote de ouro.
Ento tomei coragem, reuni onze amigos e partimos para a trip mais cobiada por milhares de surfistas: o paraso das Mentawaii. Antes disso, muita ansiedade e expectativa tomou conta da galera, j que, para muitos, surfar uma onda de fundo de coral era novidade.
Foi pouco mais de dez dias de um verdadeiro sonho, gua quente e comida boa, a bordo do Alyssa, barco guiado pelo fotgrafo Pedro Felizardo, que registrou os momentos juntamente com o fotgrafo Harleyson Almeida.
Ter escolhido a poca de melhores ondulaes foi muito importante para garantir surfe todos os dias. Eram condies perfeitas all the time, e um pico melhor que o outro.
As imagens falam por si s.
Obrigado a todos que fizeram parte para tornar esse sonho realidade.Obrigado aos meus amigos Fernando Peressutti (Catatau), Fernando Ongaratto, Joo Derlon, Guti Lenz, Dani Lenz, Eduardo Bohn
(Boleta), Rafa Carvalho, Thiago Stringhini, Duda Brigoni, Mateus Herdy, Alexandre Herdy, Pedro Felizardo e Harleyson Almeida, por dividirem comigo essa boat trip histrica e memorvel! Escolher a parceria com que voc ir viajar faz toda a diferena!
Bio info: Name, age, jobs (if any before photography), birthplace.
Vernon James Deck, born in a little town called Motueka in New Zealand. Ill turning 40 this year. Before photography I did some casual work, manual labour, just whatever I could find while backpacking around Australia.
Este Vernon Deck, o cara por trs das lentes da Volcom. Nasceu na Nova Zelndia.
Fotografo profissional, 8 anos clicando para a marca Volcom. A convite nosso, Vernon foi entrevistado por nosso parceiro Lucas Zuch, do Surfari. A entrevista original ocorreu em ingls e vamos divulgar na integra. Traduo disponvel em nosso site: www.boardontheroad.com
Tell us a little about your background. You are from New Zealand but is based in Switzerland, right? Were you always related to snowboard (or boardsports in general)? How did your relationship with action sports came about?
I grew up In NZ but always had the urge to discover. When I was 18 I left NZ and have never lives there since. I grew up at the beach but was never involved in boardsports, Motor-x and Rugby were my sports, both of which I competed in to a high level. I backpacked around Australia for 2 1/2 years and then through a friend got a job in a Formula 1 team in England. I worked there for a year then fell in love with a girl from Switzerland and moved to the mountains. There I fell in love with Snowboarding(and out of love with the girl)
How did happen the connection between sports and photograpy? Which form of expression came first and who got you hooked on capturing images?
I had experienced photography in motor sports and rugby and not liked how little control the photographer had. The sports take place regardless, the photographer is really just reporting on the action taking place. What I loved about snowboarding and now all boardsports is that the photographer is a huge part of the industry. We have freedom to shoot in the best locations, with the best light and we can keep on trying till we get the perfect shot. Photographers and athletes have to work together to make great images. I love the involvement.
Describe your path until becoming a staff photographer for Volcom? Whats a workday like for you? How do you plan your year/photoshoots/campaigns with the brand and its athletes?
Ive been contracted to Volcom for 8 years now and still love it. It is a big family for me now, some team riders I knew as kids are now all grown up and superstars. I began shooting with Cheryl Maas, one of Volcoms new stars at the time. We had a really good relationship and still do today (we just went on a shoot to Norway together). Volcom really liked my shots of Cheryl and offered me a contract.
Volcom trusted me 100% I guess. They give me very little direction and basically just let me make the pictures I want. The travel is mostly short notice and I am on the road most of the year. I know most of the team really well now so its easy to jump in and out of a crew. Fortunately I love to travel and I get to see some awesome spots around the world.
How does it feel working with a company that transitions so well between surf, skate and snow? Do you get to chat, travel or work with other athletes/professionals? Does it help you in any way?
I love the brand and what it stands for. Volcom got sold to a big French company a couple of years ago and in the beginning I was scared the brand would change too much for me but it seems to be keeping its soul intact. One of the things that I love most about in this business is the amazing people I get to meet, travel and work with. The amount of artistic, musically gifted, self driven, curious, beautiful people that are involved here is maybe higher than any other industry. I never get sick of being around these people, even though most of them are nearly 20 years younger than me now.
Snowboard, just as surfing, is a very beautiful, raw and scenic sport/lifestyle to shoot. But at the same time, its a image-saturated theme, with a lot of people doing it. How do you set your photographs apart from the crowd? Where and who do you draw inspiration from?
This is the reason I started taking photos of snowboarding in the beginning. There have been and still are many people shooting snowboarding but I would say only about 15-20 are making a full time living off it. I think in surfing its about the same maybe. You can only really make good money shooting for the brands.
For me its about showing snowboarding the right way, keeping it real but also trying to put a personal style on it. I dont go for gimmicks or the latest trend. My style has stayed pretty much the same through the last ten years, even back to when I was shooting analog still. I even use the same 3-4 lens for the last 15 years. Whats changed is the way I can predict light and the experience I gained in being able to predict a moment before it happens. Photography is all about the MOMENT.
I get inspiration from nature mostly, seeing something beautiful in perfect light is magical. On the other side of the coin I also draw inspiration from city life, in particular NYC. I can go there for 3-4 days and bike around alone and I am invisible. Here the moments are there to be taken. There are many people that inspire me but not one in particular, mostly those that live life on their own terms.

What is your favorite thing to do/when are you most happy?
I have a pretty simple life, not many material things. I am happy with my camera, a 50mm lens, warm weather, good company. Sometimes though I get feeling back from my young days and want to go fast! Then I go to a go-kart track and rips some laps. That makes me happy.
What can we expect from Vernon Deck in the near future?
The future for me is not far away, Ive never planned too much. Right now though Im making some plans. This summer Im going to be in Australia for 2-3 months working on a project. This set of pictures has been jamming up my brain for a few years now and Ive decided nows the time to give birth to them. Then hopefully Ill meet my Brazilian best buddy Loic Wirth on a small island in Indo for an adventure. Next year I will buy a sail boat and spend some months sailing around the pacific islands.
