Du Flocon à La Vague
“A hymn to water”, such can be considered the book of Damien Castera. With his friend and traveling companion, Mathieu Crepel, they went to retrace the course of a snowflake which settles on the top of a mountain, flows along rivers and ends its course in the waves of the ocean. It is in Alaska and Patagonia, that the 2 adventure enthusiasts have successively done snowboarding, packrafting, canoeing, surfing… But as Nicolas Hulot says in the preface, “their discipline which they master with elegance. and brio is just a vehicle for discovering, meeting, learning and understanding ”.
The book of the flake in the wave is not a surf book, it is a real quest for meaning and adventures brilliantly told by Damien Castera and beautifully captured by photographer Greg Rabejac.
