海とコミュニティをめぐる縁側の家とアダム・ドーリング(和歌山大学)のプロジェクト「NGUPI – アチェ/福島」の経過発表を行います。共に津波被害を体験したスマトラ島アチェと福島のサーフコミュニティの交流と体験の共有から、海と寄り添い生きる人々の営みを紐解く本プロジェクトでは、2024年2月に福島のサーファー3名(齋藤勇樹/anitoya、松本康弘、高橋優子/縁側の家)がアダム・ドーリングと共にアチェを訪問しました。
NGUPI はアチェの方言で、友達と特に目的なくコーヒーをすすりながらだらだらする事の意。果たしてNGUPIとなったのか…乞うご期待ください!
17:00 “NGUPI – Aceh/Fukushima” Progress Report (Yuko Takahashi, Adam Dorling, Yuki Saito, Yasuhiro Matsumoto)
Progress of the project “NGUPI – Aceh/Fukushima” by Adam Dorling (Wakayama University) and engawanoie on the sea and the community is presented. This project aims to unravel the activities of people living close to the ocean through exchanges and shared experiences between the surfing communities of Aceh and Fukushima, both of which experienced the tsunami disaster. NGUPI is an Acehnese dialect word that refers to a casual, aimless, coffee-sipping experience with friends.
We are looking forward to seeing if it turned out to be “ngupi”…stay tuned!

2023 riding the waves on march 11 – archive video


how was our day on march 11, 2023? – yes, we had a very nice ordinary day. we met and surfed, ate and talked – that was all but isn’t that wonderful? now we are dreaming of march 11 becoming a day to look forward to being/spending time together, even if we are no longer around to organize it. so here’s a record of our ordinary but somehow slightly magical day on march 11, 2023, that we hope you enjoy!
oops, you don’t have enough time for that? no worries here’s the teaser.

3月11日に波に乗ろう / Ride the Waves on March 11th [2023]
Documented by Hirofumi Nakamoto, FULLHD, 38:08

The idea for “Ride the Waves on March 11” came about when Mihara stopped by engawanoie and was invited by the surfers to ride the waves and talk with them over a delicious meal. When I realized that the day I felt so special was an ordinary day in this area, I intuitively decided to make it a format that anyone could participate in on March 11. We would like to gather every year, making small changes to make it a fresh day for the locals as well.
