SONIC SOUVENIRS II - Côte d'Ivoire



Sonic Souvenirs Volume II, a series focused on the intersection of surf, art and culture told through the lens of one of the world’s most stylish surfers, Mikey February.

In the second installment of this exploration, Sonic Souvenirs: Cotê d’Ivoire, Mikey is joined by Vans’ Lee Ann Curren and Alex Knost in Ivory Coast, Africa. Through their travels, they are embedded in the origins of many regions’ cultures, spotlighting a variety of musical styles, instruments, dance, and deep-rooted traditions around creative expression. Nestled in smaller, niche communities. Each region has its own ideas and interpretation of surfing, independent of existing perceptions or definitions.
