Video: A Shared Moment with Israel Preciado

A Shared Moment with Israel Preciado from Quality Peoples on Vimeo.

From our friends over at Quality Peoples. This documentary film is the first in a series of short films that take a brief glimpse into the lives of Quality Peoples collaborators and inspirations. Israel Preciado is a longboarder cat from Mexico and the unofficial Mayor of Sayulita. You might know Izzy as the face of QP, he’s the stoic guy in all the photos. Antithetical to the image we’ve created of him, Izzy is actually one of the kindest, funniest, unassuming guys you’ll meet in the lineup. Izzy’s quiver runs deep and in this short film we spend a few shared moments with him as he talks about his childhood, his favorite spots, slowing things down, the art of small wave riding, traveling, learning to surf and the act of surfing as both sport and meditation. With a special appearance by Lola Mignot.This short documentary was filmed, directed and edited by the folks at Quality Peoples. We hope you enjoy.

Working with Bing is so much more than I ever expected out of “work”. The entire Bing team has not only pushed me to be as creative as I can be, but it’s given me a sense of family in a new place. I have moved all over the world in my life and I’ve never felt such a warm welcome before. Their collective positivity and warmness has brought me so much inspiration in the few months that I’ve had the pleasure to work with them. I can’t wait to see where these friendships will take us all. I’d like to give a special shout out to a guy who’s inspiring positive attitude and willingness to give a random toothless guy from Delaware a chance, Grey Lockwood aka “Team Dad”

I surfed the Church + Middles zone a lot when I was in San Clemente. I definitely clocked a few magic sessions in that part of the coast. I have always kinda been allergic to the crowd factor in California…. But this season I feel like I had a few sessions that felt like I was in the Baja. Maybe 6 people out… all smiles and good vibes. So many waves! We did a morning meet up with the Bing crew and absolutely scored… glassy perfect waves. That was a standout session for sure. When I was staying in Venice I was surfing Malibu, which never felt like Baja, with 600 of my best friends or heading up the coast to Ventura to surf the beachies or Rincon. It’s always kinda fun to get into the mix at the Bu. You just have to think of surfing as a completely different activity. It’s more of a happy hour vibe all the time.
