Julian and Joaquin Azulay are two Argentinean brothers born in a family with tradition and passion for surfing. In 1963, their Dad, and three of his friends became surf pioneers in Argentina. Julian Azulay studied architecture and Joaquin Azulay is a former professional football (soccer) player with a Business Administration degree.
Motivated by their passion for surfing, adventure and nature they begun what became their life journey on July 8th, 2010 driving from California back home to Argentina while surfing and camping all the way down. In Baja California they were given the name “Gauchos Del Mar” for being Argentinians, drinking mate and spending the whole day in the water. As a result of this trip they produced the first of five documentaries. They’ve been in more than 40 countries, traveling by plane, by car, by truck, by boat, by foot, but always as good gauchos, with mate in their bag.
During their travels they noticed there was a dormant part of themselves strongly related to social, cultural and environmental issues. This way, and without even noticing it, they found their passion for communicating these type of messages through their films.
Since then they have committed to surf the world interacting with its different cultures, learning from them, sharing an environmental and a non-consumer orientated message, and transmitting a simple and healthy way of living in harmony with nature.
The brothers are currently working on producing a web series for Guayakí called “Viaje del Mate”, coming soon. For now, visit their Vimeo page for a full library of incredible films.
