Willy has switched from his rocket red airbrushes into the dark side. Apparently Stretch didn’t get the memo when he decided to surprise Willy with this neon twinnie!
“You Only Tell the Truth in the Dark” documents a journey through the Chilean landscape with William Aliotti and Sebastien Zanella of Desillusion Magazine. This video is a somber and introspective look at what drives us into exploring the unknown. It reflects the urgency in each of us to go out of our comfort zone, whether that’s paddling into massive slabs while undergunned or traveling in a camper van for a month with no access to your electronic devices. What we make of the moment defines who we are. We often can’t see well when heading into the fog. In this case, Willy clearly found his way.
Willy was knifing frontside bombs on his CFT medium 5’10” x 18.187″ x 2.187″ Lil Buddy model. His final heat against friend and competitor Dean Bowen found him scoring a perfect 10 which sealed the deal and gave an unforgettable end to his to Chilean road trip adventure!
William had this to comment on how he felt after winning the event:
“Without the board you make me I would of never won this contest ! In my first heat I took a set on the head and I thinks if you board wasn’t strong I would of break my board for sure . I was soo confidant on the 5,10 lil buddy and the 6,2 2×4 there were amazing! flying every football !”
(Yeah, not sure what he means by “flying every football” either. It’s all good! Maybe it’s a french thing or something he learned while in Chile… William speaks English 100x’s better than I speak French but I still blame the autospell correct on his iphone!)
