Sidenote from the author
The term Nulltuul was actually created the day when I nearly drowned while surfing on the Gold Coast back in 2016.
It was a small-medium, sunny day with fast and clean waves. I managed to fell off the board, then got stuck in the breaking waves and had serious troubles fighting the rip current on the top. Within a matter of minutes – after recovering on the beach, seeing in tunnel vision and childhood memories popping out, something switch in my head. Later that day – I visited the beach again and took the first surf shots from the water, and somehow managed to developed the interest towards surfing and powers of the water. Nulltuul means zero wind from the Estonian language, and it was one of those days with no wind whatsover.
Respect the nature and others in need! Restube is definitely a product to consider when you love to spend time by the water.
I created Nulltuul to share my experience, research and analysis with other surf enthusiasts out there. If I'm not surfing on my travels - I like to photograph waves, surfers, and the surf lifestyle in general.
