SLAB SURFING EXPLORES NEW EXTREMES WITH THE CAST OF SOCIETY UNSEEN
If blood is thicker than water then the Brown Brothers of West Oz must have rocks flowing through their veins. Meet the team behind the best slab surfing movie ever made.
IT’S SUCH A BRILLIANT IDEA AND AMAZING IT HADN’T HAPPENED SOONER. A TIGHT CONFEDERATION OF WESTERN OZ’S MOST REVERED HEAVY-WATER TALENT HAVE BEEN QUIETLY BUILDING A UNIQUE FILM PROJECT, SOCIETY UNSEEN. THE CONCEPT BLENDS LOCAL KNOWLEDGE AND CINEMATIC SCOPE INTO A HEART-STOPPING VISION OF THE MOST TERRIFYING WAVES WEST OF THE 129TH MERIDIAN. SLAB SURFING LOOMS EVER LARGER IN THE PUBLIC EYE IN THIS COUNTRY. ALREADY THIS YEAR WE’VE BEEN BLOWN AWAY BY LEROY BELLET’S BEHIND-THE-SURFER PERSPECTIVE, AND AGAIN BY THE MAD HEROISM OF CAPE FEAR. BUT EARLY GLIMPSES INDICATE THIS IS DIFFERENT TO ANYTHING THAT’S GONE BEFORE: THE LIGHT, THE INTENSITY, THE DISTINCTIVELY WEST AUSTRALIAN OBSESSION WITH RUGGED TRANSPORT: CHOPPERS, PLANES, SKIS, ZODIACS, SERIOUSLY GRUNTY BOATS AND 4WDS. WAVES THAT FOR SIZE, POWER AND REMOTENESS ARE BEYOND THE PHYSICS OF PADDLING. IT’S LIKE SEEING CHANNON AND MCLEOD’S ROAD SONG LEAP OFF THE PAGE AND INTO A HIGH DEFINITION, SURROUND-SOUND FUTURE WHERE THE MACHINERY MIGHT BE SCIENCE FICTION, BUT THE ANCIENT CLIFFS ARE STILL STARING DOWN TIME LIKE IT DOESN’T EXIST AT ALL.
BROTHER NUMBER ONE - KERBY BROWN
A man with serious miles on his surfing clock, Kerbs has been a top-flight junior competitor, a QS journeyman, and for many years now, at the cutting edge of big wave exploration in this country. At 33, his reputation is global, his body in fine shape, and he’s ridden through the hard lessons that make great watermen. For what this project requires, he’s at his peak.
The Brown brothers are the sons of a Geraldton rock muso and crayfisherman, and were already scouring the northwest coast for waves before their dad decided to relocate the family to Kalbarri. Kerby was doing runs to Hawaii every season, and his dad hit him with the ultimatum: you’re not turning up at school. Either knuckle down and study or make a go of the surfing and take it seriously. The choice was obvious.
But there came another turning point a little further down the road; the QS burned him out. “I realised it wasn’t for me, hassling Brazilians in one-foot waves. I was half-hearted, partying heaps. And I knew I was missing good waves back home.” At around 21, he started chasing big swells with single-minded focus. But one after the other his sponsors, SMP and Mambo, went down. Just as Mambo fell, Kerby and his partner Nicole were expecting a baby. Time for another reinvention.
Kerbs did what many West Aussies in his position did: he got into offshore oil & gas and made a good living. “It was a huge change from surfing and partying to realising I need to raise a family.” The change was a blessing in disguise – forbidden by the employer from drinking and partying, “It was like I was in training. I surfed more in those years than I did when I was kicking round – and I got six months off.”
Now the resources party is over, and Kerbs now faces another reinvention. This time he’s pivoting towards his two favourite passions (aside from whipping into building-size barrels): photography and food. To add just another layer of mystique to the many hidden behind those whiskers, the man is an astonishingly good cook.
Kerby credits Rick Rifici as the prime mover of the Society Unseen idea. Rick’s already captured Kerby in some unimaginably dangerous situations – snarling lip over his head and dry ledge under his feet. But he’s not the loudest guy in the room by any measure. Why does he do it? “It fulfils me,” he says. “I’m always looking forward to that moment, surfing a ridiculously heavy wave and surviving it. I’m not content living a normal life, without extremity – I get bored easily.”
He agrees that becoming a dad changed his approach. “I was more reckless. I didn’t care – ‘If I don’t come home, that’s it then.’ Now, it’s like, ‘I’m not coming home to my child.’ I’m not backing off, I’m just mentally more calculating. Sometimes.” He laughs. “Other times the thoughts come afterwards.”
He’s nursing a knee at present, but so far, the biggest physical damage from surfing slabs has come in ways you mightn’t expect. “The Right pushes you so deep – I did my eardrum in May and again the other day.” His kid brother Cortney has seen him off to hospital “so many times. Nicole’s amazing. I know she gets worried for him but she does a bloody good show of hiding it.”
The days when it’s worked – the weather, the swell, the technical stuff – make it all worthwhile. “One of the first trips we did as a group, we had three skis way out to sea on this wave down south. It was sunny and huge and amazing. Dangerous, but a good session. We’ve been chasing those moments ever since, but it’s hard to make ‘em align. Especially on these waves – they’re evil.”
The project is “all our own time and money,” despite the millionaire vibe created by Corsaire’s flying toys. Therefore it’s hard for Kerbs to predict when it will be in the can. “I can’t see an end date just yet,” he says. “We’ll keep building and see where it takes us. The other factor is – how long can we keep doing this without someone getting seriously hurt?”
Opposite: Thunderbrowns are go. (White). Opening: A mutant unloads on the treacherous, shark infested waters these lunatics call home. (White)
MR GOODVIBES - CORTNEY BROWN
If you were to make a portrait of the archetypal nor-west surfer, what would you include? A hyper-stylish barrel rider. A fearless tow-pig. A son learning the ropes of crayfishing from his father. An easygoing lad you’d share a laugh with over a Red Lead.
Well there, in a paragraph, is Cortney Brown. Five years younger than his bearded bro Kerby, Corts is a different kind of guy. He’s a neat freak and a hater of filth, where Kerbs is more comfortable with stench and muck. Lightly built, clean shaven and outgoing, he’s nevertheless as close to Kerby as a brother can be. “I’ve surfed with him my whole life,” he says. “He’s the reason I started. I think we used to fight a bit when we were tiny, but we’re the best of mates. I’ve always looked up to the guy.” That level of brotherly affection leads to an obvious problem with a project like Society Unseen. How do you venture into seriously dangerous ocean with your only brother and your long-term partner, or as Cortney puts it, half your bloody family? “It depends what we’re surfing. I get super worried for them if I’m on the ski.” There are no easy go-downs. “Every time someone goes down towing those waves it’s a fucking heavy situation. You’ve got to be there to make sure they pop up. I don’t care how fit you are: if that wave wants to kill you, it’ll kill you.”
He agrees that Kerby and Nicole and their grommet Phoenix offer a model of a life he could emulate down the track. “Kerby being down south is the first time we’ve been separated since we were little kids. I miss seeing Phoenix and Nicole too.” Their departure from Kalbarri highlights the need to adapt in the west – both to get the kind of waves they’re after, and just to make a living. “Kerby’s scored this winter, and I’ve pretty much missed out. On the other hand, he has to come up here and get some sun now and then.”
Cortney’s more than an echo of his brother’s giant talent: he’s got a world class act of his own (he was picked up by Volcom at ten years old). He thinks the two of them are very similar surfers, although “Kerby’s a bit more of a maniac. I can hold back in some situations. He pushes me.” And he’s stoked on having Imogen on board: “I couldn’t imagine travelling with a better bunch of humans.”
In his self-effacing way, Cortney’s not sure what he brings to the table, although he helpfully proffers his nickname, “Swiss” because of his ability to come up with an
option for any situation, like a Swiss Army knife. When he thinks about it a little harder, he reckons it might be his tendency to bring on the happy vibe: “they’re all pretty serious.”
WILD CHILD OF THE BLUFF - IMOGEN CALDWELL
In a tribe comprised of far-flung members, 19-year-old Imogen Caldwell is the light from a distant galaxy. When she answers the landline in the homestead at Red Bluff - there’s no mobile signal out there – a dog barks in the desert night behind her. It’s somehow perfect.
Imogen’s parents packed their five children in the car many moons ago and left the east coast on an open-ended road trip. They wound up managing Red Bluff, home-schooling their children, and making the kind of life you find in a Winton or Favel Parrett novel. Imogen lived full-time at the Bluff, with Australia’s most photogenic lefthander roaring away in front of her home. The Brown brothers visited frequently on surf missions. Cortney visited more…and more. “We all knew who they were,” she laughs. They’ve been together for years now.
Imogen learned to dive, and to surf, in challenging waters. Anyone who’s been to the Bluff knows there’s no easy beachbreak to get started on, and there’s a hell of a shorepound in the bay. It’s the Point or stay dry. She grew up a goofyfooter and quickly adapted to fast, barrelling waves.
Incredibly, she’s only been surfing for about four years. In that time she’s surfed heavier waves than most surfers – male or female – will surf in a lifetime. Gradually she pulled away from the Bluff. “I was travelling to
compete a lot, and I worked out it was easier to travel from Kalbarri than out of the Bluff. I started moving my stuff into Cortney’s and… eventually I was living there. She found her way into modelling and picked up a deal with RVCA that requires her to go on trips and get involved with their design team, as well as model the product. When she’s not doing that, she’s modelling high fashion for international clients or just travelling with whatever’s on offer.
“Originally,” she explains, “I wasn’t part of the Society Unseen loop. Then someone said – ‘we need a girl!’and everyone looked
at me. Since I’d met Cortney, the waves I was surfing were getting bigger and bigger and I’d already started towing, so…”
“Imo’s crazy,” says Kerby. “It’s a spinout to see her in big waves. It’s the last thing you’d expect when you look at her on land. She’s mature and goes hard for her age. She’s starting to look now at the slabby waves we surf. That’s going to be really interesting.”
Asked to explain how she finds herself amongst a crew of diehard slab surfers exploring the cold waters of the south, Imogen’s at a loss. “I can’t really explain it. I love surfing. I’m ready to take on slabs. If Cortney’s on the other end of the rope, there’s total trust between us.” She starts laughing again. “I mean, I’m small, I’m tiny. I’ve been getting away with it so far, touch wood. Kerby takes all the hits for everyone. It’ll be interesting, but hopefully we all come out of it alright.”
THE PHOTOGRAPHER - CHRIS WHITE
“I’m just a stay-at-home dad,” Chris White says dismissively. It’s not what others say of him. ‘Pioneer of slabs’ is one term that’s been applied to the 36 year old, who carved a reputation making the celebrated Tension bodyboarding vids. Rifici calls him a legend, and among this group he’s known as The Sensei. He’s said to have found The Right, something that you don’t just stumble across without serious experience and the courage to apply it. White did much of his travelling and searching for waves in the days when he was making bodyboard movies. He’d known Kerby and Cortney from early days, and they called him in as much for his explorer’s soul as for his shots. Shooting water for a project like this is every bit as dangerous as the surfing itself, but White’s pretty unflappable. “We’re often so far out at sea that you’re not swimming anyway, you’re on the back of a ski. Even then you’ve got to keep your wits about you. But sharks don’t faze me – I figure there’s plenty else to eat out there.”
Thus far, he hasn’t gone over the falls at any of the major locations. “I think you’d die if you did,” he says simply. His only plan is “not to miss anything they do”, which makes sense given that many of these sessions are worth one or maybe two shots. Someone risks their life – it’s a hell of a responsibility to be the one who has to capture the moment in a highly unpredictable environment.
White picks his lenses before he heads out, so he isn’t caught at sea trying to change ports in the wind and spray. He says he hasn’t lost any gear yet. But it’s the human fatigue, not gear losses, that really mounts up. White’s covered big distances over short timeframes – they all have. Car travel, ski travel, water shooting in heavy surf. “And the constant mental focus, the wondering: are we in the right spot? Are we in the right part of the right spot? The whole thing’s exhausting.” Opposite: He may hibernate for months on end, but when the Kerbs is hungry, it feeds. Brother Brown in the bear den. (White)
Working out of planes and choppers all over the gigantic expanse of the west is “like nothing else. These trips are some of the best things I’ve ever done as a photographer. Some days it seems like a dream. You’re not sure it really happened.” He’s seen spinner dolphins, whales and countless seals, but the single moment that’s stuck in his mind came at the end of a long day when they managed to lose themselves way off the coast, searching for a half-forgotten wave. “Then we found this other wave out there, just nowhere, and it was wrapping itself around a rock and exploding, sending these missile attacks of whitewater into the sky.”
The day at the dry-ledge lefthander stands out too. “I remember going out there and thinking ‘oh well, we’ve got the wrong day.’ It wasn’t surfable. And then Kerby got this wild look in his eye and he goes ‘yeah, I might get a couple,’ and he suited up and went. And you could see the local knowledge – he just always picked the right line. Another guy came out after him and tried the same thing, and he got annihilated.”
White’s also using the trips with the Society Unseen crew to build up a photo book of his own. There’s every indication it’ll be a classic.
“I’M NOT CONTENT LIVING A NORMAL LIFE, WITHOUT EXTREMITY. I GET BORED EASILY.”
THE ENGINE ROOM – NICOLE JARDINE
Kerby Brown’s partner of sixteen years is the whip-smart Nicole. Alongside Rick Rifici’s wife Sonya, she provides the logistical drive that puts the crew on-point for critical swells.
Nicole and Kerby have been together since they were sixteen or seventeen, and it’s clear from a short conversation that she’s come to terms with the hard-charging ways of her chosen life partner.
There’s been no start date and there is no end date for the project – it just swirls around them like the weather they’re chasing. It’s elusive – “a bit hard to wrap it up and put a big bow around it,” she says. She has her own ideas about what the narrative arc of the film would be. “To me this is a group of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. We’re not pros with companies throwing stupid amounts of money at us. We’ve got families, jobs. There’s a strong sense of adventure, and danger.” As she utters the word danger, her five-year-old boy Phoenix - Kerby’s son - is hollering happily in the background.
Nicole hasn’t mentioned the epic geography, which is perhaps a habit with westerners. Maybe they assume everything’s this far apart. “Oh yeah, sure,” she says. “The fact that it’s WA really ties it all together. These are locations that are almost totally unseen – thus the name. Kerby is very strong on respecting spots – no social media, no identifying features.” She’s proud that the Society Unseen concept has grown around a team of people from the far corners of WA, and with vastly different backgrounds, making something worthwhile together. “This has been groups of mates, doing these trips for years. But we’d never pulled together a team to cover all the bases, That’s what’s changed. It was Kerby, Brad and Cortney at first, then Whitey to shoot it. Then Luke and Phil, who’ve been besties since they were kids, and so on. Now we’re two tow teams, a photographer, an aviation and cinematic production team – with me and Sonya in the background. It’s the complete package.”
But she concedes it’s very expensive, very weather-dependant and it requires scheduling around everyone’s interests “because it’s no-one’s full-time job.”
Kerby’s tweaked his knee on the most recent filming run. There’s vision in the early cuts that shows him grimacing in pain on the back of a ski. “Ah, he’ll be right,” laughs Nicole. She confirms they don’t have the casualty department on speed dial at their place. But then she adds: “Rick feels a heavy responsibility for them, especially after he filmed the Cape Fear event. Where they’re going, if something goes seriously wrong, the likelihood is they won’t reach help in time.”
THE LUNATIC - BRAD “CHUCK” NORRIS
Perth-based Brad Norris goes way back with Kerby Brown. “I’ve always tow-surfed, hunted new waves. I like finding places where people aren’t around. Kerby and I were surfing together a lot early last year, and then Rick was talking about doing something, and it all sort of pieced together.”
Brad was running his own business as a plumber, but realised he was losing valuable exploring time, so he took a job with a mate who understood the obsession, allowing him more time off to be available for Society Unseen runs. He doesn’t claim to have a specialised role in the group: “Maybe I just bring the youth. They’re all old as fuck.”
Despite being repeatedly labelled as the resident lunatic of the group, Brad claims to be “the most scared person out there.” The trick seems to be dissociation: “I don’t think too much about myself. I think about the fun. You can only find out it’s unsurfable by surfing it.”
His last two surfs with Society Unseen have demonstrated the limits of surfability. He’s had deep muscle damage that’s still hurting him after four months, and more recently he broke a rib, scored a massive haematoma and nearly broke his pelvis. He figures that, being younger, he recovers okay from the hits. “I try to keep in shape so I can withstand more.” In his mind’s eye, he wants to see a high-end feature film come out of the project, “Showing people what they’ve never seen before.” And he’s convinced the footage they’re capturing has real impact. “Non-surfers would think it’s mind-blowing. Hell, I think it’s mind-blowing. These waves are so powerful.”
THE HARD MAN - PHIL READ
There’s few tougher job descriptions than “EX-AFL player turned big wave charger”. Once nominated by Ben Cousins as the best surfer among the 500-odd AFL players, Phil Read played for Melbourne and West Coast, notoriously taking on Dale Kickett in the “Demolition Derby” (Kickett won the fight but got nine weeks to Read’s two).
After footy, Read partnered with Mark Mathews, charging his way to a Billabong Big Wave nomination at The Right in April 2014. For ten years he worked as a surf guide at Kandui resort in the Ments, honing his barrel act on shallow coral at Rifles, Nokandui, Bank Vaults and Hideaways.
These days Phil works on the Freo wharves as a crane operator. He likes the job – it’s flexible enough that he can “book off” nine days a month when he sees a swell approaching. He thinks that what he brought across from footy to slabs is preparedness, a tendency to reduce risk by being organised.
He’s not sure that he has any specialised role in the Society Unseen mob. “Nah. Just more than happy to be surfing with guys like Kerby and Cortney. I definitely learn from them, the way they approach waves.” The comparisons are interesting to him: Mark Mathews’s careful organisation, as against Brad Norris’s recklessness. “He won’t even look at the surf before he paddles out some days.” He loves being under the sway of Chris White – “he’s
“SHARKS DON’T FAZE ME – I FIGURE THERE’S PLENTY ELSE TO EAT OUT THERE.” Opposite: WA of the dragon - Chuck Norris’ unleashes some kung pow. (Christie)
done so much time out there on the south coast. No EPIRB, no map, no GPS. Just one ski and a lot of confidence. It’s inspirational. You go out with him, you don’t even have to think.”
Despite his lesser experience than the Browns, Phil’s escaped so far without much carnage: just “a couple of two-wavers at the Right.” But he’s had a taste of how dangerous it can get. “I pin-dropped last year on a closeout, and coming up in the turbulence the tow board hit me really hard in the cheek. I grabbed the vest toggles before I passed out. In the end I got away with a few stitches.”
Luck is what it’s all about for Phil. “I just feel lucky to be mentioned with those guys. I see Rick in the channel and I can’t believe that guy’s waiting for me to catch a wave.”
THE PILOT - LUKE WYLLIE
Luke Wyllie’s a happy guy. He radiates breezy good humour. And why wouldn’t he? He’s got the best job in the world: owns his own aviation company and uses the money from the good jobs (mining, and taking tourists from Perth down to Leeuwin Estate) to subsidise mad dashes to Gnaraloo with people like his mate Taj. Sometimes he shoots down to Margs before dawn for a surf and he’s back at the desk by 10:30. But there’s plenty going on beneath the surface: Luke’s a hard-charging natural footer, and he’s the guy who has to remain cold-blooded when everyone else is amping.
He’s getting a kid from kinder when we call. Everyone on this thing seems be wrangling a child. He’s turning his business, Corsaire Aviation, from mining towards tourism as the mining slows down. He came into the Society Unseen project through his lifelong friendship with Phil Read, also from Perth.
What he brings to the project is serious aerial firepower: a yellow Eurocopter 130 that will carry six surfers and their boards, a ten-seat Cessna Conquest Twin Turboprop, a couple of skis and access to plenty more aircraft. “Luke’s an amazing asset,” says Cortney. “Not only is he a good mate, he’s got access to the most ridiculous toys you could think of. Every time we go to Corsaire and set foot in the hangar and look at Luke’s helicopters and planes, you just know it’s gonna be the sickest trip.” Unusually, Luke has both fixed-wing and chopper quals, and regularly uses both. The northwest is an hour and a half by Cessna, door-to-door from Perth. It’s fifteen brutal hours by road - the advantages are obvious. Sometimes they’ll get to Gnaraloo, jump in the old 4WD they leave at the airstrip and find the surf’s not up to scratch, or someone injures themselves. Luke says Kerby once flew all the way to eat a sandwich and fly back. No one minds. But they’ve got it dialled now and according to Luke, they usually score.
He uses the chopper to get to Walpole because there’s no handy airstrip. “We land on the beach somewhere and get picked up by ski,” he says casually. He uses in-flight info to dodge around the storm cells that so often accompany epic swell: “You try to pick the gaps. It keeps you on your toes.” He never lets the hellraising rub off on his approach to flying though. “I wouldn’t put a nervous traveller through what I do to these guys, but they don’t pressure me either.
“I DON’T CARE HOW FIT YOU ARE: IF THAT WAVE WANTS TO KILL YOU, IT’LL KILL YOU.”
Opposite: Norris Texas Ranger in a good ol’ western shootout. (White)
There’s lots of banter in the headsets, but the first couple of good bumps usually shuts ‘em up pretty quick.”
Putting down the two and a half tonne chopper at The Right is intense. “It’s mountainous,” says Luke. It’s tricky to find somewhere flat enough. On the beach is okay, but you have to watch for fine sand getting in the filters.”
He took the musos from Metallica up to Kalbarri for a day’s surfing – the whole town came out to see them. Late in the evening they taxied down the un-fenced runway and Luke was turning the bird to power up for takeoff when a big red roo bolted straight into the landing gear. “There was blood splattered all over the windows,” he recalls. The Metallica guys were screaming “WHAT THE FUCK! WE JUST HIT SKIPPY!”
Trying to run a business around the very sudden demands of the Society Unseen project is a juggle for Luke. “When a swell comes up you might occasionally shuffle a mining job,” he laughs. “We’re suddenly down for maintenance.”
“YOU CAN ONLY FIND OUT IT’S UNSURFABLE BY SURFING IT.”
THE CINEMATOGRAPHER - RICK RIFICI
Though he describes himself as “by far the oldest member of this gang”, cinematographer Rick Rifici is in many ways the glue that binds it together. A 30-year veteran of film and TV, Kerby credits him as the driving force behind turning something informal and fun into a creative project with teeth.
As much as he’s based anywhere, Rick lives in Seminyak with his wife Sonya, and their 18-month old grommet. He works between LA, west Oz and Bali – he recently did the water unit work for the film adaptation of Tim Winton’s Breath (alongside SW’S Jon Frank).
He feels a deep sense of responsibility for the safety of the riders. “In the deep south, a lot of the time it’s not choppers but just skis, and we’re twenty or thirty kays out. The consequences out there could be heavy. Some of the waves are harder than Chopes. At Chopes, seven out of ten are makeable. Out here, it’s more like two out of ten. At Cape Fear I watched Jughead get annihilated and split the back of his head open. It brings back the reality that we’re out at sea – how do you get back in? We need to be doing this with more support.”
At one deep-water location, Rick was hesitant, troubled by exactly those thoughts. “Then the Fisheries turned up, miles offshore, and were following us around. And I thought ‘Aha! This is our backup!’ So they watched us surf for three or four hours, and they were stoked on it.” It was a double-edged reassurance though – it turns out they were tagging Great Whites.
The gear Rick’s using is critical to creating the giant scale they’re after. “It’s as good as it gets,” he says. There’s a RED Dragon camera, worth about a hundred grand, capable of shooting Hollywood features. You could generate magazine-quality stills from among its moving images, the resolution is so good. And there’s a Phantom 4K Flex camera for super slo-mo. Worth a whopping 200 grand, it’ll shoot 1000 frames per second.
Rick’s sitting on 24 terabytes of film already – literally weeks of vision. He believes the project has enough momentum now that there’s little chance of it ever disintegrating back into informality. “The fact that this is a bunch of friends doesn’t mean it’s any less serious. Maybe it’s more serious because it’s personal.”
