Coolangata native and coming from a legendary family in the Australian surfing sphere, Noa Deane is like most of his elders. At barely 21 he’s already become one of the best surfers in the world. Yet Noa doesn’t just express himself though an explosive, aerial approach to surfing, he also possesses a deep passion for music and the art of carving on concrete. Desillusion editor in chief Sebastien Zanella spent two days with the young prodigy gaining an introspection into his world, experimenting the scope of musical possibilities, seeking his own limits.

What isn’t to love about Josh Kerr? Not only is he a webcast drawcard (at any location), but he also wake surfs like a boss. So good is Mr Kerr at surfing a boat wake, that he’s sponsored by a wake boat company (Tige Boats).
Following the Rio Pro, Kerrzy stuck around in Brazil with fellow Rusty teamer Noa Deane, and did time on a friend’s yacht. The benefit of a heavier boat? A much bigger wake. Really, it isn’t too far from a wavepool when done right. “This thing was different to the wake boats I usually surf behind,” says Kerrzy. “It’s a 30-foot, three-bedroom yacht. It’s naturally weighted almost perfect.”
Words by Elliot Struck
In his signature style of communication, Noa Deane describes his first impressions of Brazil after leaving the airport as thus: “You know how when you get off the plane in a new place, you look at how much stuff there is around? In Brazil I started looking at stuff, and I was like, fuck, there’s a fair bit of stuff here.” Laughter follows and if you’re unfamiliar with Noa’s bizarre (and excellent) wit, here’s a translation: Rio, to junior Deane, was an overwhelming assault to the senses on first impression.
