Last spring, Ludo Lefebvre hit Hawaii to give the Big Island a taste of LudoBites. Quicksilver took advantage of the chef’s visit to team him up with big waves surfers Mark Healey and Reef McIntosh and Aussie surf champ Stephanie Gilmore, who accompanied the chef on a fishing trip around North Kona to find ingredients to use in his dinners. The company documented the big bonding sesh on film, turning the trip into the following twelve-minute video that follows these four ocean-lovers on their island adventure. Unfortunately, we don’t get to see Ludo get barreled, but do catch the French chef pulling in a huge Kona crab, Healey spear-fishing and working in the kitchen, more lurid Ludo food-porn, and the whole crew cooking on the beach over local wood, with plenty of beautiful shots of Hawaiian waters and sea-life to mellow out the afternoon. Take a look.
