Colonial Surfer - STNC is a project about the contemporary globalized world and power structures within the surf industry and its realm. Surfing is not just a sport but also culture (producer and distributor). In current discussions you hear about the post-colonial but the situation today is better described as neo-colonial. Surfers do travel a lot and sometimes to places unknown to other tourists. The way surfers behave and represent themselves in the adventures search of perfect waves has a lot in common with ancient colonizers and their roles. To surf maintain and conserve already existing structures. History.

Brief Notes


  • Privilege is when you think something is not a problem because its not a problem to you personally.

  • A prerequisite to fight for a group / minority you do not belong to is understanding how your own privileges works.

  • The attractive parts of surfing is not wrong. Problems are present in dominance by naturalization, thinking about yourself as pure & neutral.
