For our 2020 Seven Seas trip, we went back to Sri Lanka aka Ceylon just before Worldwide Lockdown. This time we flipped the cameras to face our behind-the-scenes family, featuring the woman and friends who make FEDE come to life every day and care relentlessly.
Every year, we test new products and collect new fabrics and materials abroad for our Seven Seas Collection. Focused to improve current products, we also did spicy collaborations and designed some innovation that will come slowly. 🙂
A lot has changed since we went to Sri Lanka the first time, when there were no cars on the coastal roads and the tourism was slowly developing. But some things stay constant: being grateful for the healthy and spicy food, staying connected with the local community, and that sunny beach days between friends and waves will always stay in our mind.
Federica is using FEDE Surf Cover
“Sri Lanka is a really special place for me. Is the place where I started to progress my surfing thanks to its mellow and chill waves. My first Seven Seas Collaboration took place here few years ago, and since then I’m always searching for local artisans to get inspired and create wherever I go. I just love to support women, especially here, because Sri Lanka still have a male-dominated-society. Also I love the sunsets, it’s magic to stay in the water until last light!” Federica
Nils wears the FEDE Surf Poncho Blu Stripes
“Most people here have a simple but really honest live. I have seen a kind of joy in people’s faces that you barely ever see in Western countries, I had the feeling that Lankan people are holding up a greater sense of community. Food is not just made to nurture the body but also the soul 🙂 And I really loved the mornings with monks chanting with the rising sun and the birds coming to live; the empty line ups of sunrise session and of course coconut after surfing on the beach.” Nils
We surf until the last light…
…and then sunrise again.
We got inspired by the neighborhood, did amazing shooting on the railway and create the first FEDE Surf Poncho… for kids also!!!
