Luke Landrigan for Billabong Asia, Image shot with Pentax K7 and DA* 300mmWhen the largest action sports conglomerate sought to expand they came to the nation's largest and most comprehensive action sports retailer.
Billabong and Aloha Boardsports collaborated to form FREESURF, Inc. The beauty of the entire event was that it epitomized truly "One Love." It reunited some of the best surfers under the same house. (Welcome back Luke Landrigan) As well as brought together the most progressive surf companies of the region under one house, under one family... the Aloha Ohana.

In commemoration of Freesurf's dedication to the surfing and boardsport lifestyle they brought you... the "One Love" -Billabong x Bob Marley Collaboration Launch Party, last February 11, 2011. It was a collaboration of the islands' best reggae influenced talent, including Cosmic Love, Spy, Coffee Break Island, and Tropical Depression. all timed to coincide with the global phenomenon of "Bob Marley Day" or Bob Marley Festivals throughout the world. All aimed at paying tribute to the poet and the prophet, Mr. Robert Nesta Marley -one of the most influential experiences of the modern world. His legacy is more about the experience and his body of work transcends all race, class, creed to teach us one paramount idea... "One Love."
