Alaïa Bay & Alaïa Chalet in Switzerland
2020 - present
Alaïa is the leader in premium action sports experiences. Located in the canton of Wallis in Switzerland, the action sports brand offers unique experiences across the mountains and lakes. You can go surfing perfect waves at the wavepool named Alaïa Bay. You can go skateboarding or trampoline jumping at their sport center named the Alaïa Chalet. You can go wake surf on the lake of Geneva. They also have a hotel named the Alaïa Lodge and a restaurant chain just to name a few other offers they have.
We have had the task to produce the majority of their film and stills content since the opening of the wavepool, Alaïa Bay.

Longest Surf Days
Alaïa's largest event, the LSD.
Some of the many stills we took over the years showing the full effect of the smile machine. Surfers from all over the world have come to ride the wavepool and their first reaction is every time the same: goosebumps followed by a big smile.
One of the event recap films we made of the skateboard event.
A series of stills of the Alaïa Cup.
Alaïa Winter Cup
We have never been in colder water neither have we ever seen such an event filled with surprises.
As instagram reels became king, for every pro surfer that came by we made a short vertical video that was a mix of action and interview. The result is a short film sharing their experience.
Pro Athlete Visit
In this era of very short form social media content, we loved to make a bit longer form content against the status quo. Here is one of these videos we made with Johanne Defay.
And one of the local legend Gabriel Tamaki.
Few of the many memories during working hours at the office.
