Oli Adams


Oli is a Co-Creator of Reverse Paradise and has been a professional surfer since leaving school, where he graduated from the prestigious Raglan Surf Academy. He was the number one rated British surfer on the World Tour for a number of years, as well as holding multiple national titles in both the UK and New Zealand.

However, Oli’s competitive career took a major setback when he was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. This debilitating illness hindered his ability to continue competing at the highest level. To save his life, Oli had to make the difficult decision to give up his spot on the tour and undergo surgery, which resulted in him losing his colon and requiring a colostomy bag.

During his battle with Crohn’s Disease and subsequent recovery, Oli discovered a new passion for exploring freezing cold locations and creating surf films.

He made his first film ‘The Hunt for Hipmasama’ with a go pro and edited it on Imovie. Soon after it went on to win ‘Best British film’ at The London Surf Film Festival.

Since that time he has directed and surfed in two Vimeo Staff Picks for ‘Trip the Light’ and ‘Huru’, as well as his biggest work to date with ‘Awaken’.

He continues to surf professionally and his biggest goal is to raise his vibration as high as possible, whilst inspiring others to do the same.

Jacob is a fearless bodyboarder who charges heavy waves and has taken that love and experience into filming. He specialises in water filming, but also has a passion for capturing action from the beach with his RED Dragon camera.

He has spent years living a life of chasing waves all over the world and even camps out alone for months at a time on remote islands in the Atlantic ocean.

His work on ‘AWAKEN – A COLD WATER SURF FILM’ is incredible and he committed to moving to Ireland for a whole winter to make sure we got every spot on the best days. The images he captured in the final section are still blowing our mind every time we see them.
