Back when I worked at Quiksilver, I always paid attention to the photo credits, again and again I noticed most were signed AFFIF, he was the main photog for Kelly, Tony etc, so when I spotted him in France I took a picture of him doing a photoshoot, but we never got to talk, I guess I was to introvert.
Fast foreward ten years and I spot a guy looking very much like AFFIF at supers, the main section at Jeffreys Bay, South Africa, but was assuming it was not him, anyway I told my good friend Kurt the story, he went back out at supers, spotted the AFFIF and one hour later AFFIF walked into the LiveTheLifeTV jbay surf view headquarters with Kurt, both smiling and styling after an epic session at the point.
Having lost 99% of images from the past, I showed that picture of him shooting Marc Haziza, a skateboard legend, doing a BS handrail at "la place central" in Hossegor, one of the very few pictures I didn't lose somehow, ...
When we moved to France I stayed at AFFIF's house and we became best friends, he was running the biggest surf mag in Europe and he's became my Bruce Gold here in France, a beach brother. He's now joining the LTL project, and will now be the Chief Surfing Officer. Feel free to go say Ahoy Ahoy at surfbnb.tv
