Watch: Goose Chase

Five years through the lens of Nate Leal

Nate Leal has spent the past five years on the road and behind the lens while chasing waves alongside Volcom's A-list team of past and present — Dusty Payne, Carlos Munoz, Parker Coffin, Mitch Coleborn, Balaram Stack, and more. As you can imagine, he's compiled a whole lot of clips, many of which have never seen the light of day. Hence, this film.

“Last year, I realized we [Volcom] had a bunch of footage that was going to die on a hard drive if I didn't do anything with it,” Nate told us. “So I scoured around 20 TBs of raw footage and started piecing it all together. Some of it was supposed to be in Psychic Migrations, but didn't make the final cut, so Volcom gave me total autonomy over it all. The oldest trip is from 2011 — mostly super-8 film and full of tubes. It was a daunting task, as this is the first project I've had complete creative control over, so it's been an huge learning experience for me. Hopefully you guys enjoy it.”
