Backpatch – Toxic Surfer
Toxic Surfer made by our very own OEF desinger Martin!!!
“Well, this motif is kind of fragmented among more ideas. A suicidal ride on the brink of death. I think this is the perfect way to describe the madness of the fans both on the stage and in front of it during the festival.
Some stagedives look really menacing, it often looks like those people have lost the last remnants of their self-preservation. So, at the same time it is a bit of a warning for all the freaks stagediving with flip-flops at OEF. Take damn care of yourself and others!
The main idea, however, lies in something else. Nowadays, we increasingly prefer our own need and pleasure to everything else regardless of the consequences as fatal as they may be. The main thing is to have fun and to do your great surfing in the imaginary sea. But we are no longer interested in the fact we throw away millions of tons of waste into the same sea and poison it all killing gradually everything in it. We are only wondering if the great wave for super fun does come and if we are nearing a global environmental catastrophe at the same time does not bother anyone.
The whole idea and the concept of the surfer on the apocalyptic background was inspired by a similarly absurd scene from the cult war drama by F. Coppola, where soldiers, under the guidance of mad Colonel Kilgor, surf the beach in the storm of bullets.”
