Epic Surf Movies // Compassing // Cyrus Sutton // Surf Van Southern Cal and Mexico // Reef Boards // Van Nomads //

Cyrus Sutton longboarding in Cardiff, California 2013
[Authors notes] No one knows Just Passing Through like Cyrus Sutton. And in the latest chapter of Cy's adventures, he's customized his van for experiencing life on the road. Through cutting, sanding, welding, and staining, he's transformed his old van into a unique camper that's been helping him traverse the Western side of North America to seek out good waves and good people. Reef is proud to partner with Cy on his new project, "Compassing," a film chronicling his recent van travels. [End Notes] One of the best short films on surfing culture taken from the cameras of a professional surfer and film maker with sponsored support from Reef surfboards. Get healthy, find your own epic adventure and get more creative to find sponsorship.

About the Korean-World Author

Brian Perich is now an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) lecturer, father, and adventure cyclist based in South Korea.

Previously, Brian has led Canoe adventures in Quetico Provincial Park, Atikokan, Ontario, Canada (1993/1999); Trek America adventures (2000); titanium welding at Agilent Technologies, Winery work with Kendall Jackson in California; Surfing and Meditation, Yoga training in California 1999-2000.

Between 1994-1998 - Brian completed his own adventures with motorcycles. His motorcycling marathons took him across the United States and central/western Canada, while traveling solo over an astounding 24,000km in 60 days! Brian endured 900 mile/1300km average days in the motorcycle saddle and apparently loved every minute of those adventures.

Today, he has given up motorcycle adventures altogether, but finds an outlet for his enthusiasm in outdoor recreation while bicycle touring and micro-blogging about those experiences.

While employed as an English teacher in South Korea, Brian has became an advocate for bicycle touring on his mountain bikes. The Korean-World blog originated from those small adventures in Korea, now expanding to covering his recent HimalayasX expedition across western China, the Taklamakan Desert, the northern Himalayas of East Turkestan Xinjiang/Uyghur Autonomous Region, the corrugated back roads and mountains of Sichuan and Yunnan Provinces. Brian successfully completed his expedition with 3200km/1988 miles of pavement, on/off road MTB adventure cycling.


Brian has just completed his second major epic, MongoliaX expedition - Crossing Mongolia 2012, a solo mountain bike MTB expedition across 2500km of Outer Mongolia from Ulanbaatar to Altai Taven-Bogd National Park bordering China, Russia and Mongolia.



In 2013, Brian cycled 3400km (2000 miles) in 30 days completing a cross-country bicycle journey called Totherocktour. Enjoying the adventure of bicycle travel and great conversations he cycled solo from the Great Lake State of Michigan, United States to Banff National Park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. He weaved through local communities and reconnected with friends, family and community after spending almost a decade in Asia.


Brian is now supporting several non-profit foundations through expeditions: IDEAS Foundation of Canada IDEAS is the acronym for Intestinal Disease Education and Awareness Society which supports the IBD community, those suffering from IBD-inflammatory bowel disease, also known as Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis.


The second non-profit foundation is ETE.ORG - Education Through Expeditions, UK which supports educational outreach programs inside schools around the world. ETE connects explorers with students in the classroom, through an interactive online program in development (Beta).


Brian is researching support for a 18000 kilometer expedition across the Americas - ONE -Arctic to Argentina
