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.

What does the sign that this guy is doing in the picture mean? A positive way of reading could be to say that this guy is breaking the surface in the image. A image of him as a poor. But the one in control here is the one who’s behind the camera.
And this is rather a sign that says Hello in a more specific way.
It’s a surfers sign. And in this case it's about the surface. Being above or under the surface.
A young kid doing the hang loose sign from his perfect position as a poor.
Traditional. As used in the Hawaiian Islands, "Hang Loose or "Shocka" is used as a non verbal expression; or greeting. To tell the receipiant, that every thing will be OK, Relax, Stop looking at me w/ that stern look on your face. / from Urban Dictionary
