Here’s Volcom’s Maud Le Car’s awesome new clip for Monster Energy: “Cheeky Lemon”. 10 days surfing with Maud in the Mentawaï Islands shot on RED cameras by Vincent Kardasik and Alex Lesbats. Produced by LKRTEL.
We love Maud; she’s one of the nicest surfers you can meet and she rips too, plus she’s a really good artist. What doesn’t this girl do? Here’s an interview we did with her a while back.
Maud, how did you get in to surfing?
I’m from the island of St Martin in the French Caribbean and I started surfing there when I was 12. It’s at the top of Caribbean chain, near Puerto Rico. It’s only a tiny island but we’ve got a couple of spots.
Favourite surf spot in the world?
Hard question. Probably here in Hossegor. I just love it here – especially the long sandbars in Seignosse. It’s always changing, there’s a lot of variety, the waves are fun and it’s just a great place to be.
How has surfing inspired your art?
Travelling helps a lot. Seeing different countries and cultures. I love going to exhibitions and checking out street art wherever I go. So surfing helps me experience all that and get inspired. And, of course, in the water the natural beauty of the world and being in the environment that I love inspires everything I do.
Who inspires you?
Life inspires me rather than individuals. I have the chance to life the live I do and seeing and experiencing what I do inspires me. I’m super-grateful to be where I am right now.
