Pleased to announce the release No Wahala. This book stemmed from being commissioned by Van’s Surf to head to Nigeria with professional surfer Dylan Graves and team for an episode as part of the Weird Wave’s series. Whilst in Tarkwa Bay, Lagos they came across a small community, these children and teenagers have little but the ocean and the connection between the two is unparalleled. From sharing the few surfboards left from visiting surfers to just treading water their happiness is something to admire.
This love for the ocean has lead to the hopes of certain teenagers representing Nigeria at surfing in future competitions and even ISA World Games. No Wahala documents this connection and the experiences Oli and the team shared with the boys of Tarkwa Bay.
All profits of No Wahala will go to help the community of Tarkwa Bay as well as the nonprofit foundation Positive Vibe Warriors.
