About

Aquaticvoyager is about activities and experiences On, In and Around the aquatic environment.

On

We are long-time Surfers of all kinds of craft who design and shape under the Halo Surf Design label; inspired both by heritage & technology.

Our design philosophy is influenced by fundamental principles of surfboard design, punctuated by seminal surfboard shapes, which over the years, have proven timeless.

As Shapers working in the 21st Century, we are not parochial in our thinking and strive to find the balance between what was, what is and what could be. To this end, technology is a partner in our business, be it through fresh new ideas, innovative materials or adaptations of existing concepts.

Halo Surf Design distills the old with the new in its board design ethos and it influences every craft we shape from Surfboards, Kiteboards through to Longboards and Standup Paddle Boards.

In

While surfing, in all its various forms, represents our exploration of an equilibrium – a balance between two worlds – this journey is above the water.

Spearfishing allows us to explore beyond this equilibrium. It is a means of getting into the water and, momentarily, become part of the ocean.

Around

We are journeymen in the aquatic environment. We do not travel alone…

Along the way we have met, and will meet, other travellers with new ideas and experiences which we can learn from and in turn, share with others.

Join us as we journey… to places without postcards.

Here is a quote from STERLING HAYDEN’S BOOK, WANDERER
To be truly challenging, a voyage, like a life, must rest on a firm foundation of financial unrest. Otherwise, you are doomed to a routine traverse, the kind known to yachtsmen who play with their boats at sea… “cruising” it is called. Voyaging belongs to seamen, and to the wanderers of the world who cannot, or will not, fit in. If you are contemplating a voyage and you have the means, abandon the venture until your fortunes change. Only then will you know what the sea is all about.

“I’ve always wanted to sail to the south seas, but I can’t afford it.” What these men can’t afford is not to go. They are enmeshed in the cancerous discipline of “security.” And in the worship of security we fling our lives beneath the wheels of routine – and before we know it our lives are gone.

What does a man need – really need? A few pounds of food each day, heat and shelter, six feet to lie down in – and some form of working activity that will yield a sense of accomplishment. That’s all – in the material sense, and we know it. But we are brainwashed by our economic system until we end up in a tomb beneath a pyramid of time payments, mortgages, preposterous gadgetry, playthings that divert our attention for the sheer idiocy of the charade.

The years thunder by, The dreams of youth grow dim where they lie caked in dust on the shelves of patience. Before we know it, the tomb is sealed.

Where, then, lies the answer? In choice. Which shall it be: bankruptcy of purse or bankruptcy of life?
